    what i mean is that same ASIN on different amazon countries say different "Country of origin".
    on amazon Italy "Country of origin- Italy", does it means it pressed in Italy?
    amazon uk says most of the time- Germany.
    amazon.com- usa
    amazon.fr- France. etc.
    is there any way to know where they are pressed?
    for example i am looking for the:

    Let It Be (Deluxe) [VINYL]
    Box Set. 2021


    would like to know where it was pressed.

    In Europe, most likely Optimal Germany will be manufacturing these.
    It's not released yet.

    i know it's not released yet.
    i am planning to pre order it and on amazon Italy it's the best price , but i don't
    know where it will be pressed and afraid to get bad pressing.
    do you think that all European issues will be pressed at the same place?
    second, is capitol usa better quality pressing/sound than the one in Europe?

    Optimal usually does a pretty good job. Italy will import the Optimal for sale in it's country.

    No. These will be export for sale.
    Thinking for the US, the compact discs will be imported, LP's individually (going by previous titles) will be done here. Box sets-imports.
    Of course this is an (educated) guess :)

    They do (UK) but going by other Beatles titles they use a mass production plant that can handle quantity (for both formats). -Optimal is usually the choice.
    These will not be manufactured in Italy.
