Most pressings of new records are mastered from the digital source. It's not going to sound like a 1st pressing of Abbey Road. Lots of folks talking about it being miscut and oversized....stop playing records on a Crosley or AT-LP 60 and you'll be fine. Lol. My copy sounds fine thru a Pioneer PL-516, vintage Pioneer receiver and Cerwin Vega AT-15's. You want quality sound....get some quality equipment. ????
