New Audiophile Collectables This Week at, includes Rage Against The Machine, Beatles, Rolling Stones & more

What is an audiophile pressing?

Well, in a nutshell, it’s an audio format pressed to help enhance the sound quality, be that on vinyl or Compact Disc.

The idea being the heavier the vinyl pressing, the better. There have been pressings released from 120 up to 200 Gram in weight, usually the 200 Gram will play at 45rpm providing a better audio experience, instead of the standard 33 1/3rpm.

Compact Discs have various different formats, gold was used in the earlier pressing as it supposedly provided a better a clearer sound reproduction.

Mobile Fidelity are known for being one of the leaders in producing vinyl and CDs of an audiophile grade, with the original releases now highly collectable.

We now have Super Audio CDs, SHM-CD providing a high-fidelity-audio, Blu-Spec CDs using Blu-ray technology, along with DVD-Audio using DVD technology, both providing surround sound audio.

Here at we have a nice range of Audiophile pressings to suit everyone’s taste and pockets.

PETER GABRIEL Birdy (Sealed 2002 US ‘Original Master Lacquers’ 45rpm box set, a one of a kind set cut from the original master tapes given to Classic Records by Real World to produce stampers that pressed their 200gram vinyl reissue editions,with only one set (1 of 1) of lacquers cut (1 per LP side – 4 sides: A1, A2, B1, B2). In real time, the master tape was running along with the cutting lathe cutting the groove modulations in the master lacquer. The master lacquer was then electroplated & produced a Master plate used ultimately to make stampers that press vinyl records. Once the master lacquer has made its metal master it can still be played like an LP & represents the CLOSEST transfer to the original master tape used to cut it. The sound of lacquer is as close to the sound of the master tape as you can ever get – with the least amount of information lost in the transfer and the highest fidelity. The master lacquer of a Classic Records title offers the ultimate collectible given there is only one set per title. For these special “one of a kind editions” the master lacquers have been delicately trimmed down from 14″ to 12″ in diameter so that they can be played back on any modern turntable. Each disc is single sided & perfectly flat for playback sound that is nothing short of breathtaking. Each set is packaged in its own custom box & sealed and numbered to preserve their collectibility. This is a rare opportunity to procure a genuine, one of a kind collectible that will only grow in value over time PG6-45).
RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE Evil Empire (2009 Dutch exclusive limited edition Music On Vinyl edition 11-track LP pressed on 180 gm Yellow Vinyl; presented in sealed & stickered picture sleeve with printed inner bag).
