Same here, I use an Audio technica AT540. Very good in the inner grooves.

A very nice pressing with zero noise. Soundwise this is of course not optimized for analog listening, but despite that the mix is very nice. There is no insert and plain white sleeves. Only downside - the ugly artwork.

I can't agree with the first comment. This isn't an audiophile recording, but the pressing itself is just fine. Plays without noise, soundwise it's as good as it can get for a presumably digital master.

Album is 44 minutes long, perfect for a single album.

Pressing quality is ok, in some parts a little crackling but not dramatic. Soundwise a nice mastering. The music is of course questionable, I like it as a long time fan (since siamese dream) but I understand that not everybody does. Maybe a single... See full review

Nice pressing but the sound is very compressed. Glad that is not one of those annoying double albums.

Great pressing, very dynamic and quiet. Something to play when you want to show someone how cool vinyl sounds.

My copy had a big scratch on Side 1, I can't accept that, so return to sender.

Cut by Chris Bellman - it sounds very good and the pressing quality is also very nice. A great album to enjoy on vinyl.

Was this one also pressed by GZ? If so, well done this time. Hopefully GZ will do more pressings of that quality in the future.

Good sound but the pressing qualität is typical GZ. Littered with dust and paper debris, lots of crackle and a scratch made me return my copy. The seventeen seconds issue is way better. I cannot understand why GZ isn’t able to produce constant quality.

This is a great reissue, perfectly pressed with zero noise. I wish every pressing could be like this one.

My copy arrived today, I had a hard time getting them out of the sleeves due to heavy static. I can't understand why they still put records in such sleeves. Fortunately the records are flat and the pressing is silent. Only downside are the rough... See full review

This is the proof, that great pressings are still possible. How great it would be if every reissue would be done this way. Fantastic sound, great package and flat/silent records. I love it, worth every dime! When you want to show someone how cool... See full review

I also own a copy, I agree with you all - sounds great with low noise. But the machinehands-Label is missing, unfortunately. Nevertheless, a very recommendable version!

Pressing quality is not very satisfying. Got two copys, one is warped and crackles sometimes, the other one is better, also with a few crackles and visible hairlines. Very cheap thin paper innersleeves - that sucks because nowadays we all know that... See full review

I agree, this is a very good pressing. The second LP is nonsense to me, though.

I have the bicolored version, on both sides there is noticable hissing/crackling ... sounds like wet played. Cleaning did help a bit, but not much. I don't bother too much, because the rest of the album sounds great. As far as I am reading here this... See full review

A reissue like a counterfeit. The vinyl is also warped but playable, the sound quality is ok but by far not as good as the noise remasters. This band deserves better vinyl versions.

Definitely one of the best pressings in my collection. Yes, it’s expensive but worth it.

I had to exchange my copy because lp1 had some strange little warps that were audible as rumble noise. Second copy has now arrived, still with strange hissing noises on LP1, first track and now with a nasty non fill on LP2 in Retrograde.

First - this is not a high quality recording, but nevertheless - this reissue is missing something. I compared it to a first press and this one is way better.

I have mixed feelings. The first disc sounds well, but the second one with the bonus tracks is mastered too hot with plenty of distortion and to be honest - the tracks are far from essential. A cheaper reissue would be preferable, although I was lucky... See full review

Mine is also of center (got the counterfeit with the blue phillips-label) but only on side 2. I can recognize it only on harmonika, but this doesn't matter so much - this track only sounds a little more stranger this way. All in all the sound and also... See full review

Like most metal remasters this one is also not perfect. Way to bright sounding, doesn't sound as I remember it. Sleeve and pressing itself is of good quality.

My other kraftwerk reissues play also more silent compared to this one, but it is still a very good pressing. Try wet cleaning it.

I compared this release to a 90s version on Vertigo UFO-label and was never happy with this remaster. To me this mix sounded muddy with too much bass. All in all too undifferentiated. I sold my copy.

imho the best and most silent of the 4 reissues. All other reissues are sometimes a bit noisy (mostly rumble) but sound great otherwise. All in all I would say that reissues on black vinyl would have been a better choice for fidelty, but nowadays... See full review

I tested two copys of this album, all had minor surface noise. I had to exchange mine because of a pressing defect.
Yellow vinyl overall seems to be a bit noisy here.
posted a comment on Dinosaur Jr* - Without A Sound. about 1 year ago
While the sound is great on this version, the pressing could be better. It is far away from being dead silent, you can hear rumble noises between the tracks (also on all other reissues) which may be caused by the coloured vinyl.
