    probably my favourite album in my collection, you can tell that music itself as been remastered hundreds of times but the master on this version is amazing. I don’t think there was much surface noise when i first played it other then the lead in

      This is the runout from Side A, DSOTM, 180g remastered 2016: [stamped] MRP3395/88875184251-A [etched] 8887518A251-A [triangle] BG [etched] 58697[dot] 1(3) [stamped] 238868E1 1355164 Images match exactly to this discogs number 9296607. Back of shrink wrap says manufactured in the Czech Republic. Is this runout a variant of discogs #9296607? Input appreciated.

        Anyone know where the 2022 repress is listed?
        Cause the product was out of print since easily spring 2022, so current 2022 september to november new stock copies are represses... NOT this initial 2016 run 100% certain, so anyone knows ?

          This pressing is good, but it's definitely not perfect. The last minute of Eclipse plays very distorted due to the compression of the digital remaster maxing out in volume. To my ears, the top end also sounds rounded out and without much vibration to it.

          That being said, the low end spectrum is definitely there. I can hear the slight audio distortion on the album's quieter parts (i.e. Piano section in Great Gig in the Sky). I assume that's part of the original mastering, because it sounds fantastically detailed in that regard.

          Overall, it's not a bad choice for the low price of $30CAD.

            Excellent pressing of the album here. Definitely echoing the comments on the low end being very present - this feels really dynamic and helps build out the soundscape of the album. Highly recommend picking this up, just clean it thoroughly first!

              Get it. Listening to this was a borderline spiritual experience. It sounds absolutely amazing. The low end is very present and the sound is very in your face, full sounding, and dynamic. Going into my hall of fame as one of the best sounding records I have.

                By far, the best album that I own. Every vinyl collector should have this album because it's just that good. Jokes aside, this is a very well crafted pressing of this album. But the matte cover collects finger prints like there's not tomorrow.

                  Purchased three 2016 BG remasters Meddle, DSOTM, and WYWH. Wet cleaned with my record cleaning machine and each record was loaded with loud ticks and crackle throughout.
                  I haven’t had this experience with other modern LP remasters. The music itself is more alive than other versions of LP or SACD copies. Can’t stand all the distractions.

                    Very cool pressing, but side 2 towards the end is quite sibilant and distorted.

                      I do have this, 30th anniversary, A2/B3, and MoFi pressings, I also had the DMM, first Japanese, and first US pressings before, and my two cents are: DSOTM is a really well-recorded album, so even the bad pressings of this are still good sonically. Overall, it is a matter of quality, mastering, and dynamics
                      This is the best value pressing you can get. Sonically, it is great, and like all BG PF reissues, they actually sound better or comparable to first US pressings. If you are on a budget or need a second clean copy, this is one to have.
                      This pressing is balanced and has good dynamics, and overall, the low-end here is way better than the MOFI, DMM, Japanese, and the first US.
                      When we talk about this record, we usually go for Gilmour playing and Waters lyrics, but what make or break this record is the low-end, and especially Mason's drumming, which is superb and underrated on here, and that is what differentiates between a good cut and a mediocre cut.
                      The first US is really noisy and has a muddy mix. DMM pressing is not bad but really sounds too bright. First Japanese and MoFi really clean on quality vinyl, but mastering choices don't fit this record. Boosted treble and muted low-end and poor overall dynamics. They are not worth the money.
                      The A2/B3 and 30th are my favorite to listen to, and they are so comparable with the 30th being my favorite to listen to by a hair. I think the 30th is cut a little hotter and slightly more balanced.

                      Overall, any clean copy of this album is worth listening to because it was really well recorded, other than that, the more you listen to different copies, the more you get to discover the little nuances that make this record one of the greatest ever recorded. Don't waste your money on gimmicks and OBI and such, if you don't have the money, buy this, if you have the money go track a second UK pressing or 30th anniversary, or even first UK if you can afford it, which I am sure sound the best.
