    How do you think these LPs stack up against the originals in the Pressing and SQ department ?

    These definitely sound much better than my Canadian originals. The vinyl is quiet and the bass extension is noticeable.

    It got very positive reviews when it was released. I don't have any UK originals but am happy with my box.

    I don't have the box, but I have Village Green from it as a friend got a box with two in & gave me one of them. It sounds fantastic. The best I've heard this album sound and I have heard an original.

    I have the mono set and the village green set but no originals to compare against.
    That why I was asking.
    I think both box sets sound brilliant .

    This is the best way to go. It's all analog, cut by Kevin Gray, etc. You will not find better sounding monos from the Kinks at this price. The 70's/80's PRTs are good but I think this even has those beat.

    Darn it! Can’t Kevin Gray slow down a bit? It’s too hard to resist his work.

    Listening now. Just ridiculously good. So much punch, clarity and damn presence. Can't imagine these albums ever sounding better than this.

    One of the jewels of my collection. I don't have originals, unfortunately, but given the limitations of the era and Pye in particular, I very much doubt they sound better than this. Also, try to find an original in top condition, and at this price.
    To sum up, this box is a dream come true for Kinks fans.

    I have the Mono Box Set, I also had Kinda Kinks, Kinks Kontroversy, Face To Face & Something Else all originals, all decent quality and all in Mono.

    The Mono Box Set wins over the originals, no argument. Which pleased me because I just want the best sounding albums and was able to sell the originals for almost twice the cost of the Mono Box.

    Listening again to Something Else from this box. So astonished by the sound quality...
