5.0 out of 5 stars The E.U. pressing definitely HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Feb. 2 2013
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
My review will focus on the manufacturing of the box set not the musical content which has remained timeless and outstanding throughout the years. I recently purchased the Beatles Stereo Vinyl Box Set on Amazon.ca and with great satisfaction was sent the version manufactured in E.U. The vinyl LPs all pressed by Optimal in Germany. I reside in the US and purchased TWO US versions of the box set pressed by Rainbo first at J&R Music and subsequently through Amazon.com (US). Both box sets were flawed with vinyls that had significant surface noise, no-fill noise, "zipper" and "sand-storm" effects. Most LPs were pressed off-center and (both copies) Sgt Pepper had really bad distortion on side one that made it unlistenable. After reading from others about the same frustration I encountered, I decided to return both box sets, as well as a handful of individual LPs I had purchased to try and unsuccessfully make one complete set (It was impossible since also these were flawed by the same defects!).
The box set I received from Amazon.ca lived up to the reviews I had read about from customers in Europe, which generally praised the vinyl pressed at Optimal. I have listened to about 8 out of the 16 vinyls and can confidently say that ALL are extremely quiet. NONE of the surface and other various noises that plagued the Rainbow pressings are heard. There may be a click here and there (it is vinyl after all), but nothing that I can't live with. ALL LPs are centered, flat and present no warping.
Added bonus was finding out that even the album sleeves are superior that the US versions. All LP sleeves have a shinier gloss finish and slightly thicker cardboard stock (even the outer box sleeve is thicker). The book included is identical since they were all printed in Italy.

1.0 out of 5 stars 1 Year Later - Still Shipping FLAWED USA Sets Dec 2 2013
Format:LP Record
So I figured a year went by, maybe they have fixed the issues with the USA set or maybe I would get a EU Set (I asked Amazon before ordering and they could not say which one I would get). So I ordered late November 2013, and unfortunately I got the USA box and it is STILL riddled with problems. I contacted Amazon to replace it and they passed me the manufacturer`s email to replace discs that were defective (in other words Amazon KNOWS they are still charging for and shipping defective sets). Since about 10 of the discs were faulty in the set I received (warped, off center, no-fill issues, Abbey Road side 2 had a gash on it like it had been dropped a couple of times), I asked for a replacement of the FULL SET and they said no they would only supply the email address to replace single discs. So I asked then to change it from replace to reimburse so now I am sending the box back to Amazon on their dime for a full refund.

Amazon and EMI/Capitol should be ASHAMED that they are still sending out USA sets riddled with problems. This is one year after release and MANY complaints, to the point where Amazon has a cut-and-paste reply to contact EMI directly for replacements. They KNOW these sets suck, yet they still sell them. I know some people are getting the EU set from Amazon.ca but I was not one of the fortunate. The Beatles catalog DESERVES BETTER! I guess I will continue to listen to my original LPs and the CDs, but I really wanted this set to complete my collection. I will hopefully someday find a company with more INTEGRITY to be forward about which set they are shipping (in other words, DO NOT buy the USA set, I can only hope the EU set is better quality, the one I got was so bad it was really a joke - and we are talking 13 months after initial release and still have not fixed their QC issues....).

4.0 out of 5 stars Third time was the charm Feb. 22 2013
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
I bought this box set on release in November of last year. The first set I received exhibited the flaws that so many others have experienced - off-centre pressings, excessive surface noise, distortion and so on. I was able to return the box to amazon.ca for a replacement. The replacement set I received had all of the same problems so I gave up and returned the box for a refund as it was too much trouble and too disheartening to keep repeating the process in the hope that I might receive a satisfactory copy.

Flash-forward to February 2013 and reports are going around that amazon.ca is shipping EU-pressed copies of the box set at a knock-down price. I decided to roll the dice for a third time and was lucky enough to receive an EU box. This one is everything the US, Rainbo-manufactured set should have been - nice, flat pressings, no evidence of no-fill - just high-quality pressings that make it possible to judge these masters on their own merits (I'm not going to wade into the debate about 24/44.1 vs. 24/192 vs. all-analogue beyond saying that the new remasters are certainly a different animal than 60s originals from the UK).

I'm glad I went with amazon.ca on this one as I would have been livid if dealing with a retailer that would not accept returns on $300 worth of defective LPs, leaving me to deal with EMI and/or Rainbo. Doesn't hurt that they cover return shipping as well.

Overall: happy with the product, but more hassle than is reasonably necessary. Enjoying the new remasters (better than the 2009 CDs, which I didn't mind). I like the added bass and clean, precise sound, but I will be holding on to my UK originals.

NB: I'm hearing on the Steve Hoffman board that others who ordered at the same time I did in February 2013 (and in the days/weeks after) have received US (Rainbo) pressed sets from amazon.ca, so it's still a roll of the dice!
