    So I collected all like a few of you. All landed here in Australia except LA purple and yellow. It was shipped 18th April, before many which have landed weeks ago... but UPS can't find it. Tracking stuck at customs in USA and hasn't moved for a month. 

    Refund received which is shit cos now without this LA vinyl. 

    Can anyone help me out get another?

    Thanks

    So, I was listening to these variants using my tt and a newer (2019) Onkyo amp I have, not very powerful, 20W speakers, etc.   The variants sounded muddy.  

    Then I got my new (vintage) Marantz Amp, and new 75W speakers, and holy cow, it opened up beautifully.  I still think the Clear and Black are the best, but all of the variants I have sounded really pretty good.   I wonder if just equipment is to blame for some of the sound.

    Not sure the best way to position these little miracles. Now to decide on which center labels to use...


    Out of interest, did you get all 3 of the centre label sticker sets amongst those beauties? 
    Looks like they are numbered with the cat. # then -1, -2, -3.
    -2 (middle) was in more than half of mine. -3 (bottom) was in 2 copies. 
    Placed on the couch this time...

     

    Across the 4 variants I have (RSD, 10C, RWB, BYR) I got 3 x -3 & 1 x -1. 
    So ISO 1 x -2 buy or trade…

    02 Arena, London - 18/08/09
    Hammersmith Apollo, London - 30/07/12 EV Solo
    Bowl, Milton Keynes - 11/07/2014
    Hammersmith Apollo, London - 06/06/17 EV Solo
    O2 Arena, London - 18/06/18
    O2 Arena, London - 17/07/18

    It's an art to live with pain, mix the light into grey...

    Know there has been lots of discussion re: the 10C ‘purple’ red variant. I’ve wondered whether, with the title being Dark Matter & that being something that is hard to see under normal light, the choice to have a vinyl colour that reveals dark swirls in the vinyl when held up to light was on purpose? 🤔
    A nice artistic choice I think if so…

    10c hasn’t put up any of those. I’d wait for them to go up there if you can’t get them in stores.

    Where did you buy the clear and the black one? My guess is from 10C.

    Many times it's about your set up. I read complaints all of the time about different pressings sounding "bad", and then I play my copy and it sounds fine. That person could also not know how to properly set up their turntable.
    1991- Hollywood Palladium, California with Temple of the Dog, Soundgarden, and Alice in Chains -RIP Magazine Show Oct. 6th
    1992- Lollapalooza, Irvine, California
    Nothing since then. I suck.
    2016- Fenway Park, Boston - Both glorious nights

    Indeed. Some of the variants still sound a bit muddy, but with the new setup, its hardly noticeable.
