Gotta agree with the others. The treble is a bit lacking in this release. Played it loud on my hi-fi and while I enjoy the added bass in the mix, it comes at expense of sounding as raw as the original master. That being said, it's definitely not bad in any way and I love the production value in this release. Two large posters, stickers and a great looking sleeve makes it a pretty nice record to pick up if you don't already own an original pressing.

But I think I will try to seek out a pre-digital pressing when I can.

The vinyl is quiet, it sounds really good. BUT, it’s a little too much of bass bottom end.. And the singers voice on The Great Gig In The Sky feels like it’s not as in your face as in original master. The bottom end takes away a little from the higher ends. Like voices and backing vocals is not as noticable as I’d like.
Otherwise, if you need this record and don’t want to spend lots of money on an original. It is really good, but I like the original more.

GREAT SOUND. Middle range of surface noise. Nice rubbery-textured cover with nice reproduction of artwork. Great sounding for a digital remaster. Vocals have a nice warmth to them, nice clean treble, and deep, and clean bass. Higly recommended. Bernie Grundman is involved so how can it be bad?

Very very happy with it. Great sound and I absolutely love all the extras. The cover texture is very nice but it can be stained very easily, just one to watch out for.

Sounds good....until you hear an earlier 70's or even 80's pre digital pressing then you realise it's actually pretty poor.

I personnaly think this is a great pressing. Sounds great to me and it has absolutely no surface noise nor pops.

This is a sonic and musical masterpiece. What the best sides of The Dark Side of The Moon have to offer is not hard to hear : the biggest, immediate staging in the largest acoustic space, the most Tubey Magic, without which you have almost nothing. Digital give you clean and clear, but only the best vintage vinyl pressings offer the kind of Tubey Magic that was on the Tapes in 1973. Correct amount of weight down low; natural tonality in the midrange - with all the instruments having the correct timbre; transparency, and resolution, critical to hearing into the three-dimensional space of the studio. The best copies are not brighter or hyped-up in any way, they are just bigger and clearer. You have to play as LOUD as possible, and then you will hear the difference ! Early british pressings are the best, forget modern , digitally sourced reissues !! ( just my opinion)

A very good copy, absolutely cleen, with great dynamics, but about this point, I remember the original pressing my dad had me listen to, I remember that there was more dynamic on "Money" for exemple, I think Pink Floyd always payed a lot of care about that it's part of the magic, close to classic/orchestral albums, very low volume and then boom, a music explosion...that brings all the emotion.
But all tracks have a really good dynamic, I really enjoy that, and some other tracks have maybe a bit more dynamic than the original pressing...they did some good work.
it's all about what I remember, the last time I listened to the original pressing was like 4 or 5 years ago..
But as about all the remastering, the bass are more prononced, but still there are not to high, and for that there are some passages of the album I enjoy more because of that, but for one or the other I think it was not necessary...
But about all remastering have a boost in the low frequency, and depending on your sound system (speakers..) you may notice less small details in the high frequency range...I listened it with crap speakers and it was worse than the original, but with a decent audio system I like it more (I'm speaking for this remastering, not all the others, it's not true for all of them).
Sometimes I ask myself "but why did they work on something that is great ? What do they want more?"

In my opinion there are plenty of albums wich should not have been remastered...they where good as they where...
Maybe they enjoy to try new thinks.

But overall, don't forget it was a top selling for years, a master piece...and still now it's selling good, it's a "must have" album.

All good !
