Bought this sealed and mint condition and the first plays were unrecognizably bad; skipping and slurring all over. After cleaning with a kit (fine brush, spray and microfiber cloth) it began to play clean. Not sure if anyone else had this experience, but it's been perfect ever since that first debacle!

Minor swaying on A&B, minor warp on C&D. Minor pops here and there, nothing worse than the original black. Nothing is affecting quality enough for me to be angry. Glad to have this on color.

There is swaying happening on my LPs and it does sound like it's affecting the overall quality and tone. Also, there are spots with popping. Not impressed at all...

My copy isn't bad. A small amount of swaying on LP2, and there are a few spots with minor popping, but other than that, it sounds fine. Happy with it overall!

While it appears that I’m the exception here cause everyone else is raving about the pressing quality, the copy I received is quite poor and I’ll be returning for a replacement.
