    It is present on older versions, maybe just quieter? I haven't heard the 2011 master myself, so I'm not sure. It's discussed here: http://forums.stevehoffman.tv/threads/what-is-said-at-the-very-end-of-the-wall-album.131774/

    OK. So I ordered 8 of these for my father for Christmas. It took a few days to ship, but then as others have said EMS was quick. I had them within a week. Finally got a chance to open up one of the CD's this morning: Obscured by Clouds. They really are exquisite. They seem perfect down to every detail. Just drop dead gorgeous packaging. Nice booklet with Obscured. I was very impressed! I then checked the overall thoughts on the 2011 CD remasters, and the consensus is they are decent.

    End result: Ordered up the complete set of 15 for myself this afternoon. Should have them shortly after New Years I expect.

    Needed these like I needed a hole in the head. :) But WTF, it's Christmas!

    It'll be nice to retire my "eclectic" mix of Floyd CD's to the basement system, and have these for the main system. Even if I am a vinyl guy. ;)

    Sorry I have not read the whole thread. I have most of these 2017 mini sleeves and very fine they are. Anyone know why they did not do Relics?

    A quick update on claiming the promo box.

    The coupons were sent to a 3rd party in Japan almost 3 weeks ago. They have been received and recently resent to the label in order to claim the promo box. Release date is still end of January.

    Mine showed up today!!! Woohoo! Will be going through them at length over the next couple of days, and will provide a full writeup. Can't say enough abut CD Japan. Items were super well packed, tracking number worked well, and they arrived in 1 week from Japan.

    One of my "goals" for 2018 was "15 nights of Floyd". Going to listen to all 15 albums in order over the course of 2 weeks and a day. My wife is going to love it!! :goodie::pineapple::bdance:

    I apologize if I missed this in the middle of all the discussions re: the coupon and display box: These are all the same masters as the 2011 Why Pink Floyd...? campaign, correct?
     
  9. Correct.

  10. Is the 2011 Animals you speak of come from the Discovery box set?
     
  11. Yes.
     
  12. Thank you!

    So is it fair to say if I bought the discovery box set I would have the best sounding Pink Floyd on CD or at least a close 2nd?
     
  13. Correct. The Discovery box is the best one-stop solution for Pink Floyd fans. Better masterings may exist for a few albums in it, but you would have to spend a lot of time and money tracking them down.
