My copy sounds okay. No clicks or pops from what I can hear on mine, sounds pretty good. Guess I was just lucky.

Did a back to comparo with this Bernie and a 1980 Japanese Half Speed Master Sound 30AP 1875. I would say that there is a bit more presence and musicality on the Japanese pressing side 1 especially Welcome To The Machine, although mine does have more surface noise than this Bernie. Soundstage a bit broader on the Japanese on side 1. On side 2 Cigar sounds a bit more detailed on this Bernie, but the Japanese definitely has a warmer and deeper bass at the expense of slight inner and upper detail than this Bernie. Same for Wish You Were Here, more midrange energy and lower bass in the Japanese, with this Bernie being better in the upper mid and highs with more shimmer in the strings and cymbals. Rest of side 2 for Shine On, same story, the Bernie brings out more detail in the upper mid and highs that seem buried in the Japanese half speed. The Japanese definitely has an advantage with more energy in the mids and fuller lower deeper bass at the expense of the detail, however soundstage and presence seem more prominent overall in the Japanese.

clicks and pops and no real improvent compared to my 75 german pressing. Bought it as my original is extremely warping but even though only better dynamics which is not an issue to me.

This pressing sounds somehow slowly!!??
Can anyone confirm?

Why do publishers persist in packing records in cardboard? Mine arrived so covered in dust that it took me five trips to the cleaning machine to finally get something listenable, and even then, there's still a lot of noise. It's so stupid...
It spoils my enjoyment, I find it hard to form an opinion on the remastering work.

Great sounding remaster. The pressing, however, is riddled with clicks and pops, even after a cleaning. My side B is especially bad, and sadly, I didn't give it a spin right away and missed the return window. (Ordered mine from Amazon in July 2021, in case that helps anyone.)

Review from the UK Original vs 2016 Cut: https://www.discogs.com/Pink-Floyd-Wish-You-Were-Here/release/463597
Just listened to my First UK press of WYWH and these are my first impressions.
Besides some crackles which I mostly hope to get off with some cleaning Im quite happy with it for a number of reasons. Coming off of the 2016 issue as my only copy its clear that theres a lot more punch in the sound, that being the biggest difference. The low end bass is fuller and the sound is still so effortless, really wonderful. Wish You Were here just slams it compared to the new issue by Grundman and its really enjoyable.
Whats not as enjoyable are a few details. I can play the Grundman cut louder overall and whats gained from that soundwise is a bit of the soundstage and most of all the effect sounds. One of my favorite parts of the whole album is in Shine on right when the singing starts. It goes "remember when you were young..." and then there is that ominous laugh. That laugh used to send chills down my spine, mostly because of how real and in the room it felt. But its not as effective in the original. I feel similarly about the opening to Welcome to the Machine and Wish You Were here with their sound effects.
This is just on first listen, Ill be going back to the 2016 issue next time and see if it sound underwhelming now or still holds up. Despite it all Im happy to have both the oldest and newest releases and maybe some day Ill find a sound that strikes the middle between the two or change my mind on them completely.

On second inspection I notice a few other things, mainly about the EQ and Soundstaging again. The UK original is somewhat more low end favored which is probably what gives it its smoother and more bass filled sound. The BG is higher end favored and I feel reflects a slightly more realistic reproduction, even with less bass. Its probably what made me feel like the effects were less in the room on the UK as they become slightly less present and real. Now what I mean by soundstaging is the way in which instruments are placed. BGs work on this Pink Floyd series has been a very neutral and balanced approach. As with the EQ, the soundstaging is less deep, but then instead more present, and you hear some instruments buried in the mix of the original more so hear. Is that good however? Sometimes emphasis is more important than making everything heard at all times. Perhaps cymbals become more annoying than effect full after a while. Its very dependent on the listener.
With the progress made here I have to say that I again favor the Reissue over the original and vice versa for certain things. But given the cost and effort required to find a clean original the reissue might just edge it out here.

Equipment Used:
Technics SL1210GR
Paratrace tipped Nagaoka MP-200 Cartridge
Cyrus 2 Amplifier
System Fidelity SF-3050 Tower Speakers

Punchy as hell, wide dynamics and great bass. Recommend this remaster 100% but if money isn't an object to you go for the first pressing.

Question: I have a 180 gram pressing with the black outer plastic sleeve. UPC code is 5099902988016. It does not have thelarge black 2016 sticker that says "remastered..."
The inner cardboard sleeve states "Mastered by James Guthrie and Joel Plante (das boot recording) and Doug Sax (The Mastering Lab)" There is no mention of Bernie Grundman. Labels are black and purple instead of black and blue, there is not year mentioned anywhere as to when it was pressed. So.....What pressing do I have?
