Got a copy of this notorious record (beautiful pressing and packaging!) to test my system. My system failed. I think. It didn't blow the stylus right off the record, but there's a distinct pop sound during the cannon shots. I was playing this on a VPI Classic 2 with an Ortofon 2M Black cartridge set to 1.8g tracking. Is my system set up incorrectly, or is this just a ridiculously demanding pressing that requires far more expensive gear than I have?
