    I received this about a week ago. It was just the main LP. A small part of me was wondering if they would send an entire Super Deluxe replacement set...

    I got three copies of the main LP for my box sets. Only had to show my original receipt. Pretty painless.

    $33.50 shipped with tons available, wow! I'd almost buy another one. I wonder if these are being blown out due to the flaw in the LP which is discussed earlier in this thread. Seems silly because anyone who buys this and wants the corrected vinyl simply has to submit their information to get one.

    Or perhaps HotH is deemed the strangest LZ album (coining the phrase from another active thread) or least-liked album and they couldn't give these boxes away.

    Thanks for the tip. I'm hoping it comes with the download code.

    So, are all these cheap copies just resellers who got a bunch of sets with the defective main LP?

    I bought one from Merchandise Outlet, and Rhino sent me a replacement LP with no hassle, but I'd swear it still sounds a little off. May just be a paranoid illusion... :crazy:

    I honestly don't know if the resellers even know whether or not their sets have the defective LP, or how many of them even are aware of the issue. But as you say, still a good deal because, via Dr Rhino, once you have your purchase receipt for this set, you can get a free sealed LP of the main album as well! (And AFAIK the replacements are fine - but this album's remaster is IMHO not quite as good sonically as many of the others, and conversely this album already was available in multiple excellent sounding pressings/versions via the Diament CD and the Ludwig and Peckham vinyl, among others...)

    Are the replacements now coming sealed with the retail cover/packaging? My replacement copy was sent in a generic white cardboard sleeve.

    I better check mine and see if I need a replacement... think I bought this Super Deluxe Box on Amazon when it was released so I should be able to print the invoice if my copy needs replacing. Thanks all!

    I went ahead and ordered this. At $35 I can't afford not to.

    I went the Rhino route and my replacement still had the distortion in "The Ocean." When I brought this to their attention they offered to check the next replacement prior to sending and confirmed back to me they heard the distortion on that one too - so they offered me an alternate item instead. So, I was forced to order the Euro pressing from Amazon UK. This was 2-3 months after this box was released BTW.

    Man the price is definitely right, but it's the Zep album I play the least. I wish they had this deal for the the third album

    Me too, a few days ago. Haven't heard a peep. Just sent them a 2nd notice. Not very impressed with their customer service so far..

    I just sent a second email too. I'm in no rush but an acknowledgment that they got my email and will get back to me would be nice
