      UPDATE: 12/26/2023 I received a replacement copy from the seller Starship Records and this time the vinyl is flawless! No complaints, as everything is perfect. Dark Side Of The Moon is timeless and this AAA 2016 edition was superbly remastered!

      For the life of me I don't know how an iconic album like this gets past quality control in the pressing plant. My copy not only had paper debris but large scuff marks on both sides. The first track on side 1 " Speak To Me" is ruined by very audible ticks and some static. The song is quiet, so the noise stands out. Side 2 "Money" has 1 momentary pop and overall is not as noisy, as the cash register ringing at the beginning, where the scruff mark is, drowns it out. Shame, since the replication of the jacket, posters and stickers are beautiful.

        4/5 - perfect remaster if you take top-end from the equation.... because too much gain like over 10-12kHZ, one some tracks percussions are too sharp to be natural plus vinyl quality is medicore. I played this vinyl like max 15 times with a great care and it's already a bit noisy and cracky

          Noisy vinyl. Distorted at some points. At the beginning of side 1 there are some sort of pops that I don't have on any of my other vinyl

            I grew up listening to this on CD in the mid-to-late 90s and, while I haven’t heard any OG pressing of this, this 2016 BG cut is close to flawless and sounds absolutely wonderful. DSD pressed well is the future of reissues anyway, once all the tapes are dead, so we’ll probably shelve our analogue stridency.

            After enjoying this 2016 cut for several years and, in the spirit of finding the “iconic” analogue cuts, I bought NM copies of MoFi’s 1979 and Kevin Gray’s 2003 pressings. I admit I haven’t heard a UK OG pressing (I’m trying to get a German OG from Michael Ludwig), but this 2016 sounds cleaner, fatter, and clearer than both analogue cuts I own. That’s not to say it’s the best cut out there - obviously - but it is to say these 2016 remasters are phenomenal, especially if you just want great sounding pressings of these records for a great price. I also have the 2016 cuts of WYWH and had ANIMALS, before I replaced it with the “2018” remix (which is the best version of ANIMALS to my ears due to the remix). But the 2016 ANIMALS reissue did sound great for the original mix.

            You really won’t go wrong with these 2016 reissues.

              Bought this is as my first DSOTM vinyl for 30 bucks.

              This release seems a bit too flat for me. It's a shame it's all-digital.

              My copy came in dead quiet, there is no surface noise.

              To sum up, the release seems like a solid, high-quality pressing. It has the bottoms and high frequencies. The only downside is the flatness of the sound.

              It's a good buy for that price.

                This 2016 remaster definitely does not sound as good as my 1977 5th reissue version. Hands down the older version is way more superior.

                  5/5
                  I have this and first German pressing in vg to vg+ media condition
                  If i had to get rid of one of them, it would be german one.
                  I saw some people complaining they got noisy vinyl. Mine plays completely silent
                  Wider sound stage then German 1st, on the other hand you won't really get that analog warmth
                  All in all its well worth the money, great pressing

                    Just got my copy today from Amazon Aust, Nice clean sound, no distortion love it, on the plus side 180g vinyl , and Bernie Groundman part of the team, I use a 1970's Luxman PD-288 turntable, speakers Wharfedale 400. I also have a 1973 Japan copy which is also exhalent. If you like Pink Floyd, David Gilmour Live at Pompeii on vinyl a MUST buy, 10 out of 10.

                      Very noisy vinyl. On the entire first side there is a loud crack in the right channel. In the left channel, the noise is quieter, but still noisy.
