spark
THIS THING KICKS ASS. period. AAA at its best congrats to Kevin Gray and Doug sax for this gem! If you want the best version of DSOTM look no further (I would suggest to buy a used copy in good condition cause most of the sealed ones are defected)
Mojar
Where are you getting the information that most of the sealed ones are defective? I was about to pull the trigger on a sealed one for sale on Discogs.
Sironynyr
For those that want to know there are two cover versions of this release. One with a standard size spine and the other ultra rare 15mm wide spine. On Sound quality this is near to an original version, however EMI have transferred the original sound recording to DMM and lost the true originals, so the sound has varied over the years (lots of companies did this to sound like CDs, oh that craze). However if you set the tracking angle right on your tone arm, you can get close to the original, as the vinyl is thicker etc, but there is never any cigar, until the next release at least:)
Mikarr
I have a transparent red edition of this press, I cannot find any other information of that combination. Your is black?
Perius
Yes, this is black vinyl version. Probably you bought bootleg
romrom
Guess I got lucky, clean copy with no sibilance issues and no surface noise of any significance. VPI, Souther Linear Tracker, AT 150MLX. Maybe sounds a little dark sometimes, maybe, but overall I think this is a wonderful pressing and sounds great. The Last AAA edition of this album ever, so you might as well pick up a copy while you can.
Arashigore
Does anybody know where was this pressed? Says platted at RTI and pressed in Holland, doesn't specify the pressing plant. Thanks.
Gholbirdred
An excellent true AAA reissue. Very warm and analog sounding without any surface noise in my copy.May be cut hot, with my cartridge only minor sibilance.
Phenade
bright and sibilant (especially "money"). there is surface noise on both sides of my copy but not enough to rate VG.
PanshyR
This master/pressing is many things. Sibilant? Yes in parts. Bright? Hell no. It's almost too warm and laid back sounding!
Jaiarton
Quiet copy here, probably the best DSOTM that ive heard so far...
Mettiarrb
.Richard. Quiet copy here, probably the best DSOTM that ive heard so far... Which ones have you heard Richard?
Styphe
I can't compare it to other issues, since I don't own any, but I think there is something a little off with this pressing. A small amount of surface noise and distortion in some places that shouldn't be there (but not that much). But then again, i read online comments from many people who have listened to several versions of this album who say it's one of the best ever, so it might just be me.... I won't bother talking about the music itself. Everybody knows it is undoubtedly one of the best albums ever, a timeless and iconic classic.
Rose Of Winds
It might be that your cart has a hard time tracking the record which gives off the distortions. If I had to recommend another press its probably the new 2016 remasters. They are the best I have heard and track well on any player.
Yggfyn
This is probably the most widely reissued album in existence.
Quphagie
Listening to my copy now. Barely any surface noise at all and no sibilance. This is my favorite pressing of this classic. AAA all the way thanks to Kevin Gray and Doug Sax.
Grarana
Have to agree-- great mastering crap pressing. Some claim they've got clean copies but I doubt it. The level of surface noise on my copy makes it a waste of time to play. I'm using SOTA Star Sapphire with Linear Arm and Soundsmith Hyperion cart.
Yozshujinn
Agreed there with the surface noise. My 1974 German pressing is perfect in comparison. This pressing has lots of pops and clicks on first play, but cleaned up nicely. Just crap quality control I guess.
Yayrel
Nothing wrong with mine at all - quiet as a mouse, however I did run it through an audio desk ultrasonic cleaner.
Chilele
Great mastering, bad pressing. It's a shame because this could have been one of the best versions of DSOTM.
Conjuril
I have the original UK release and also the 30th anniversary vinyl SHVL 80430th is absolutely the bestGo to this review http://news.acousticsounds.com/post.cfm/steve-hoffman-and-richard-foster-review-the-dark-sidecartridge ZYX, E.A.R. tube and Tannoy
watchman
onhttp://www.jpc.de/jpcng/poprock/detail/-/art/Pink-Floyd-The-Dark-Side-Of-The-Moon-remastered-180g-Ltd-Edition/hnum/2463776somebody states in his review, that this Remastering is a new analog master, but sonically closer to the 2003 SACD release. He also says that the 2011 release is sonically closer to the original mix.But, a brand new 2011 Reissue I got some weeks ago was of such bad pressing quality (lots of pops and slightly distorted), I returned it to amazon. Now, I ordered a copy of this release, hoping the best ...
Nettale
Anybody else experiencing some pretty awful sibilance problems with the 30th anniversary pressing? The "S" sounds on Time and Brain Damage are horrendous, and I have a pretty decent TT to play it (1974 Rega Planar 2). I'm actually thinking of selling my (almost) brand new copy and picking up an older Harvest or EMI copy instead. Thoughts?
Tamesya
I just purchased my copy and am experiencing the same sibilance issues. In fact, to my ears, the entire record sounds pretty bad...hollow and thin on certain tracks. I will most certainly be replacing this version!!! (VPI Classic 2 and Lyra Delos).
Wilalmaine
Do you mean for david gilmour? Because for Waters, sibilance sounds normal ^_^ Joke apart, my earlier question from june 29 was related to such issue and others..., it was polite way to suspect it was a digital remastering, which is pretty dumb on an analog support and reproduction. So, yes, i guess everyone can throw release in garbage. I don't experience sibilance problem as strong as you, but the overall sounds sampled and have lack of deepness on my installation compared to an old pressing (Thorens TD-160 with SAE 1000-LT MC cartridge)
Doomredeemer
Yes, I have terrible sibilance on the 30th DSOTM LP. It has the worst sibilance I've ever heard. I have a good system using a Technics SL-1200MK2 with a Denon DL-110 cartridge going into my Audio Research SP-3A-1 tube pre-amp. There is another LP version coming out for the "Why Pink Floyd" series of releases. If there aren't any sibilance problems reported with that version, I may buy it to replace this garbage.

Could anyone tell if this is a digital or an analogic remastering? Thank you in advance!
