  1. Weight has nothing to do with sound, but there was only one master done by Bob Ludwig for all media so it literally cannot be "more dynamic" than any other version. Classic Records also prepared the inital pressing for Zoo, which is likely why it was also done at RTI (same as the 200g TPs) Original 180g test from RTI -https://www.discogs.com/Tool-Ænima/release/7763661
  2. It's cut from the same lacquers so we know it's not possible to have a different mix or master and thus will not have different dynamics, likely the differences are either placebo effect or the original copy just happens to be a bad individual record which happens occasionally; for the VAST majority of people, they will be identical.
  3. Classic didn't go out of business until @ 2010, they did the Peter Gabriel catalogue on 200g single-sided 45rpm Clarity Vinyl in 2009. The reissue of AEnima just fell through, so probably someone from the label pulled the plug on it. The original vinyl of AEnima was prepared by Classic for Zoo (according to Discogs info on the Classic 200g test pressing) and was pressed at RTI so if you have an original, there's no sonic reason I'm aware of to seek out a Test Pressing. The TPs of the 200g will sound good because it appears Classic had quite a number of them done vs. the standard 5-10 copies for QC you'd typically see, but Classic did that a lot. Their TPs are legit, but certainly not limited to 10.
  4. Pretty sure a high resolution download will also be available on that date, given that's likely the master for everything else I will just purchase that and be done with it. Also, I gave up quite quickly on 10,000 Days when it came out...rediscovering it this week via the new 24/96 remaster and I'm so much more into it now than I was back then. I really like the mix and the production also, sounds fantastic on my main HiFi.
  5. Well The Beatles just took over the internet with a 50 year old album, haha.
  6. Thank you and bless ye! Always happy to see others out there that care about video quality and audio fidelity. I upgraded last December to 4K, Panasonic 65" 4K OLED, Sony X800 which allows DVD-Audio and SACD playback also, and bumped my 5.2 system to 5.2.4 Atmos/dts:X-capable with the addition of four Pioneer Atmos modules. Bought my first Blu-ray in 2006. The new 4K Ultra HD format is the single biggest upgrade in quality from one format generation to the next I've witnessed in my lifetime, HDR on an OLED rules.
  7. That's just covering their butts, goes across the Atlantic and tranfers to Royal Mail same as USPS does. Don't know why they put such absurd transit times. I've ordered cheapie shipping to here from UK, DE, ES, IT and FR and never taken more than 2-3 weeks regular mail. Of course if you're wanting it more quickly, Amazon US' courier options for expedited/express/etc will definitely be cheaper. I can send a record from Buffalo, NY to UK same price as it costs me from Toronto > Montreal. Canada Post rates are ridiculous.
  8. Try Amazon.ca, shipped (shipping = CDN$ 15.98) works out to around £49.35 (CDN$ 79.88) according to xe's currency rates. https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07VGTYTBF
  9. It's a new studio album from a big name artist, they're not going to forego the sales of the only market that's seen year over year growth 10+ years in a row now. EDIT - makes sense there might be a 2CD deluxe edition also, given the mp3 download mentions 89 mins of music.
  10. Port of Sound says the same thing: Fear Inoculum (CD bundle) THIS ITEM WILL NOT SHIP UNTIL THE RELEASE DATE OF : 8/30/2019 **MULTIPLE ITEM ORDERS THAT CONTAIN A PRE-ORDER WILL NOT SHIP UNTIL THE RELEASE DATE OF THE PRE-ORDER** RCA Records - Limited Edition Tri-fold Soft Pack Video Brochure featuring: CD (79 minutes of music), 4” HD rechargeable screen with exclusive video footage, charging cable, 2 watt speaker & 36 page book + MP3 download card (89 minutes of music) *Tracklist TBA **Vinyl TBA
  11. I couldn't resist listening to this track this morning, will wait on any other previews until I have the digital download and can listen to it properly on my NAD-driven Acoustic Energy Aelite 3s. At the 2:00 mark I was definitely expecting to hear, "he had a lot to say..." Very cool tune, even more psyched to hear the balance of the album now. Adam's tones are so ace. Rock the fuck on boys!
  12. Lol, so the pre-order link is posted but doesn’t actually give any info until tomorrow...only Tool would make me wait with a misdirect like that! Oh well, what’s one more fucking night?
