Are all Beatles pressings from Japan top notch?

    Is the general consensus that the 2014 Mono White Album is fantastic? If so I need to grab one. It's even top-loading which is great..

    All the 2014s are awesome sounding. They're getting pricy, so grab em while you can.

    I have both the 2014 mono and the 2012 stereo remaster/reissues. Which do I prefer? For me it's a mixed bag. Some songs sound better in mono and others in stereo.

    Hmmm..well, my EAS pressing from the Blue Box is definitely bassier than my UK 2 box. I think you have to differentiate between stand alone EAS '76 pressings and those from the later blue boxes.

    Yes, I think mine must have been a later pressing.
