Do you have a full ranking?
Not quite - unfortunately I can only compare my ARS and STANDARD MOFI 33 (not the one step) and the 50th. At least we can get a take on the ARS to the 50th.
Japan and MFSL standard
One Step and Ars are on another planet.
Interesting. What exactly is it about the 50th LP that sounds better than the MFSL LP?
Don't the AAA cuts have KG SH in the deadwax?
I have the MFSL SACD, it sounds great to me, but I have absolutely nothing to compare it to.
I agree it sounds really good. As does the MFSL LP at 33. A comparison of the 50th release to the MFSL with some details would be interesting.
Yes, but you wouldn't know that from looking at it online or in a store, which was my point
Yeah I get that. But there are also two quad versions. The SQ was designed to play through two speakers property. I find my SQ records have a massive soundstage through regular speakers and on headphones they sound fully 3D. Just like hearing Atmos for headphones. This is also playing in "direct" mode, rather than "surround" mode.
Hard to see that before you purchase.
I'm still waiting for the 50th, but did listen last night to the ARS and the MOFI 33. I much preferred the ARS. Really curious to see where the others are going to rank. Should have the 50th on Thursday.
Your kidding right? I would not have guessed.
You would know by ordering it from AS or MD.
Yeah some sites might have that. This is what the biggest record site in Australia has in the info

Im not kidding. You realize theres not just 1 version of this right?
Is the original pressing even in the running?
I hope so, it’s the only one I have. To me it’s still rather good.
I first heard the sounds of Abraxas floating through an open apartment window just after it came out. Hit me like a bolt of lightning. That is still the best version to me...and who knows what it was being played on. I've listened to it through headphones while higher than a kite, full volume on a decent car stereo while sailing down California freeways at 70 with the windows open and no cares in the world, and lately in my COVID free listening space in my house. Feeling pretty blessed to have multiple options to hear it in all its glory. I'd love to have the ARS or the One Step but I'll gladly settle for my original release, the Columbia Half-Speed Master, and yes, to reward the new Rega, the 5oth. I still flash back to being outside that apartment every time I hear it. The rest of this is starting to get very tedious.
The One Step is significantly better than the ARS. It's got more clarity, the guitars have more bite, and the bass goes deeper. The ARS sounds very nice in its own right, though. In my opinion, both versions audibly decrease in sound quality on Side 2/Disc 2. The One Step is a special occasions record for me now since my prior mishap. I feel more comfortable pulling out the ARS when Abraxas is in my regular rotation. I haven't heard the 50th.
Every mastering of this album - vinyl or CD - I have heard, side 2 is always lesser / worse sound quality ….IMO.
