    The 1994 remaster.

    Interesting, I like the Mofi a lot, it is my go to disc over the Sax or Black Triangle versions.

    Too vague?

    I always thought the MOFI had a great deal of bottom end.

    It does, that has me wondering what this new disc sounds like. It may rattle the windows.

    Ok I managed to get a hold of a copy of Animals. Not the actual cd, but it is from WAV files converted from Flac, so it may have some bearing on my findings.
    With a quick comparison to my 28dp & Doug Sax discs I have determined that this is the least favorable of the three. Not to suggest it is overall bad, but it lacks a bit of warth that the Sax disc has & the detail of the Japanese disc. I didnt check my OBTW yet, but I may throw it on next. So far IMO, the Sax wins out. The new disc is louder and sounds very clean, but lacks an Analog "feel" that the others have.

    Mofi's Meddle does have a little more bottom end but nothing like Mofi's The Wall.

    I could, but why not simply assume my Shine On set and MFSL discs are superior and save a heap of cash? :D

    Ok, so now if I have the original late 80's CD's, the Shine On box, the OBTW box and the Discovery box, what's left?

    Other artists. ;)

    Of course I'm kidding, there are other masterings you can seek out which other good forum members will point out.

    I love the Floyd, but I've spent way more money than I can count in the 18 years I've been a superfan. Multiple masterings of pretty much everything except The Division Bell. I think I'm sitting the 2011 campaign out.

    Good one. Typically, I'm not one to collect more than two pressings of anything. This article really pulled me in for the ride, though.

    On the other hand, the new remaster may be a more accurate representation of what's on the master tape.
     
  22. Doug Sax' Saucerful of Secrets is outstanding in sound and I can't imagine how it could be improved upon. I will hold out some hope that Animals sounds better than the Sax and Guthrie remasters, but without a remix my hope there is pretty dim. The box packaging looks great...I think this would be a great gift for the Floyd novice.

    Yes, intended double-meaning.

    That would be easy, just use the mono mix!
     
  24. Though the european 1994 "Remaster" CD isn't actually the Doug Sax remaster, it's the horrible NR'd 80's mastering. BIG difference there! He probably has the Euro version :righton:

    Yes this is a cd I need an upgrade on since all I have is the OBTW set.
