By | July 3rd, 2019|Categories: Analog planet|

Malachi Lui: First and foremost, let’s note that while this is a review of Quality Record Pressings’ version of the Beatles “White Album” 2018 stereo mix, it’s really more of an excuse for me to humiliate Michael in the best ways as much as possible (laughs).

(For those who don’t know, QRP pressed the 2 LP set worldwide. Optimal in Germany, pressed the 4 LP box set worldwide, containing the original 2 LP set plus the 2 LP Escher demos).

Performance
Features
Ergonomics
Value

PRICE $999


AT A GLANCE

Plus

IMAX Enhanced certified
Nine channel amp for flexibility
Extensive wireless options

Minus

Ample power for a medium-size room

Your mind can conjure the tune and the words (assuming they’re at all memorable, and they usually aren’t) but rarely anything unique about the voice or the delivery.
