    They’re all pressed in the EU. Maybe Rainbo should’ve done it.

  2. Neil Brown says:

    I received my EU pressed copy on Thursday and its already on its way back. There was a pressing error on the Mono Masters LP (a lump in the vinyl !). Minor quality issues also on 3 others where the excess vinyl was not removed creating lumps on the lead in and also poor label positioning on a couple of others. I hope mine is a one off. I have asked for refund because I want to be sure that there is not some broad pressing issue here. What a shame. It really should not happen on such an expensive box set.

  3. Mike the Fish says:

    Yeah, it’s a shame with all the attention to detail that the inner sleeves weren’t replicated (in print design – rather than the type of poly or whatever lining).

  4. Andy says:

    I was only going to buy the albums I really like – not already owning any Beatles vinyl – which is Rubber Soul through to the White Album. But once I saw the prices of the individual albums, coupled with the video of the unboxing, I decided to go for it and pre-order the whole thing.

  5. Paul Swift says:

    Now that is what you call an un boxing video ! Excellent.

  6. Quinn says:

    Emitex inner sleeves? Really? Hopefully they’ll be in some nice poly-lined ones a la MFSL releases.

  7. PAC says:

    I enjoyed it too. Enthusiasm always infectious but not sure I will be adding it to the stereo box.. Time will tell I suppose !

  8. Ranasakawa says:

    Although I am not a vinyl fan, I did enjoy the video and may consider getting this as an investment.

  9. Chuck Salazar says:

    Beautiful Box…but just only one BAD point, the absence of the “Use Emitex” White Inner Sleeves in the first 6 Albums…very disappointing.

    Hmmm, my comment has disappeared. Can I ask why, Paul?

      My comment seems to have disappeared too (and I’m sure it was not offensive or controversial).

      Maybe a glitch?

    Ken! Did you really think a £288 product was something that was going to have a huge mass appeal? Anoraks it is.

  12. ken says:

    The whole euphoria about this set is very sad. The reviews I’ve read so far all seem to have been utilising a top end hi-fi (Mojo used one costing£108k!) The majority of this music was recorded as lo-fi so whats the point? If people still feel the need to spend £300 on music almost 50 years old good luck to them, but come on , this set is for hi-fi nerds and Beatles anoraks only.

      @ Ken

      I have no idea what you’re talking about, dude. I love the music and that’s where it ends for me. I’ve got a very modest system but can’t wait to spin these. To each his own, so don’t let it get you down.

    • John C. says:

      Your comment’s OK by me. That leaves more sets for people that WANT them. Why do you even care?

  13. Adey says:

    Stunning set just ordered one after watching the video. Now all I need is a turntable…

  14. Paul W says:

    Oddly compelling. Good work.
