Thought I'd start a thread to help fellow
audiophiles out.
This is a place to discuss,vent and warn fellow members about shitty vinyl pressings and/or poor customer service.

I like to read about the good pressings,now here's a chance to learn about the pressings or companies to stay away from.

So to start stay away from Darla records poor quality and horrible customer service he actually told me that I did the damage and it was my fault!
Sucks that they pressed all the early MMJ albums :(

    Victory Records. My husband bought an album. Had a huge pop in it. They replaced it. The same huge pop is in the same exact place.

    I know it's been said before in other threads but other members have had issues with the reissue of QOTSA Rated X(Rated R on cd).
    I own this pressing and it's one of those records you have to really turn up to get anything out of.
    Granted I'd be turning it up anyways Im glad that I own it.Still it would be nice to have a better mastered vinyl pressing.

    Tool Lateralus picture discs sound like shit as well.

    Be nice if they released an audiophile pressing of this album!

    Anyone know who/where the MOFL pressings come from? I only have a few of them and they are the most consistent/ best sounding presses I have

    Pretty sure they are based on the East Coast of the USA.
    I have 10 or so of these amazing records!
