The mastering for this reissue kicks ass. Super rich, punchy, crisp, and deep. I almost feel compelled to crank it every time it's spun. Honestly I've been pretty impressed with the sound quality of these DM remasters, and the package is pretty neat too- the matte coating on the insert is a cool touch. There's a bit of very light surface noise that is somewhat noticeable during quieter passages, but there are no loud crackles or pops, and nothing is distracting. My system is pretty revealing so I'm sure if I used one of my less sensitive styli it would sound flawless.

Sweetest. Plays very very good. My bronze cartridge will reveal any imperfection but was quiet and with an outstanding sound quality. Very dynamic, with excellent image and separation on the stereo field. The low end at ‘enjoy the silence’ chorus is brutally precise, of another world. Enjoy the silence my friend.

Plays really well, actually louder and more detailed than a first pressing in my opinion, also no surface noise, really good job on this one!

I have yet to be disappointed by these 2016 DM reissues.

I have to agree with others that said the vinyl is very vedy quiet. I'm using a Stanton 680 HP which was a cartridge formulated for 12" singles and nightclub spinners. Many 180 gram pressings sound noisy with this Stanton. Not this one. Every up tempo song has the punch & kick of a well pressed 12" single. The quiet songs sound great as well. Most places in AZ want $35.00 to $45.00, and I skipped it for that reason alone for almost four years now. This is the edition you want. You can try the Music On Vinyl edition (2016), but read those reviews close and be cautious. Be well, be safe, and be cautious of those who don't know the difference.

impressive - flat, noise - dustless pressing, great sound. Briliant

Anyone else have the Matrix/runout from this issue but missing the legacy logo on the label?

I wasn't so lucky, beautiful pressing but side two was full of surface noise. I noticed some pressing issue, rub wear on the vinyl. Very disappointed because the mastering is very good but the surface noise and pops ruined a great pressing.

I grew up listening to this album; first on cassette, then on CD, and finally on the 2006 remastered CD version from Mute. This is the first time I listen to 'Violator' on vinyl and it sounds perfectly, as good as I remembered it. Sounds clean, loud and clear. Sony Music (and Legacy) seems to be doing a good job with the Depeche Mode vinyl editions.
