    Same for me.
  2. I suspect that the one person who said they had a reply might have been doing a little trolling for fun.

    I ordered CD and vinyl replacements.

    Neither has arrived, although I did get an email reply re: the CD.

    I did, yes - on Thursday...

    It’s arrived in just a plain white poly lined inner sleeve..

    So the replacement cds are simply just arriving out of the blue. No notification or anything?
    Oh well, hopefully mine will show up soon!

    Got my vinyl replacement today.Is it on lighter vinyl than the box set copy?

    Investigating the repaired waveform they've used the same file(syncs and cancels) as the error version up to 2.42(we can beat them) and then changed to the repaired file.This repaired section of the file must have been made from the same flat transfer as it also syncs once it's moved to match the error version.
    Why they just didn't use the whole repaired or new transfer is anyones guess[​IMG]

    What do you mean by “once it’s moved to match the error version”? The edit is different and you hadn’t to move it to get them to line up? Also, if it was made from the same flat transfer, they would have been dealing with the same “loss of energy” issues in that section. Does it sound seemless to you now?

    Once the edit point is reached the two files obviously go out of sync with each other so I aligned the two files at the edit and once again they sync perfectly.Same master
    In this case the flat transfer would appear not to be the source of the "loss of engery" but rather during the processing stage.

    Given Parlophone's original response that there was nothing wrong with the original CD - it was simply our ears that were mistaken - now they've changed the CD it can no longer be right. It's simple logic. On balance I'm sticking with the original, I'm pleased they haven't even acknowledged receipt of my polite request for a replacement. Here's wishing a very happy and prosperous xmas to all the good folks at Parlophone.

    So the Amazon Autorip version isn't fixed...

    I ordered the box set in an Amazon UK sale over xmas...It arrived today...Considering it took a few days to ship I presume it was new stock..

    Sadly - the CD version of Heroes is still unfixed...

    I suspect that there will only be one pressing of the box sets and any remaining stock will all be "original" versions, corrected cd's and lp's wont be available commercially until the stand alone release are issued.

    Even if you bought a box set today you will still have to request a replacement.

    So, the master itself is fine. They screwed it up in mastering and their whole explantation was total BS?

    I’m so happy I didn’t spend much time with the flawed version when it came out. Only listened to the affected portion two or three times. Thankfully, I’ve already forgotten where it was. Now, those of you who have spent hours with this trying to figure out what was going on, that may turn out to have been a huge sacrifice in the end, since I think many of you won’t be able to un-hear the “loss of energy” anymore. It will forever remain ingrained.

    If only the “loss of energy” had been the only problem on this dire set, some of us could have saved a lot of our own energy :)

    Just got an email from Warner’s customer services giving me a case number and saying that they’re working on getting a replacement “Heroes” cd out to me. When my order has been processed apparently they’ll email again.

    No idea at this point how long this will take of course...
    I’m assuming I won’t get a replacement until the albums are reissued individually.

    Has anyone got a new repaired cd yet?
