Here, now you don't have to worry about it.

The mono box set, which sounds better, is also available for the same price.

I'm really tired of this argument over piracy and lack of physical album sales. Here's why: it doesn't distinguish between a worthwhile purchase and some mass produced cheap CDs in a terrible little case.

It isn't that I don't want to not buy music, it's that I don't want to pay for bad art.

If you stick a crappy, generic, gaudy, burned-DVD on a store shelf in a clear jewel case with jotted, chicken-scratch words that read "Beatles Discography (2009 Remaster)," I am not going to pay money for it. It could be identical in every single way to the box set in terms of quality and quantity. The music would be the same, but I would never, ever buy the DVD. Because it's worthless. Because it's junk.

So here's my point. We don't buy CDs anymore because most CDs are not worth owning. They don't enhance the music, they don't look particularly nice, and they're extremely overpriced. They're not a viable product.

And now, because we have options that make more sense as consumers, we're obviously using them. When I can get online and download an album for free, in 5 minutes, in the same exact quality as I'd get from a CD, why would I honestly want to do anything else?

I can find more albums in higher quality and faster download speeds off of damn near any bittorrent site than I can with iTunes, and the better option is also free.

We have all been raised as consumers, by consumers, in a product-driven world. How else are we supposed to react when given such options? The very forces that brought record labels and physical music sales to power is now bringing them down, and the fall is inevitable.

Until we are presented with a real product that is worth the price tag, we will continue to choose the best option for ourselves. I have absolutely no sympathy for artists that don't create art.

Right now it's cheaper on amazon than it is in iTunes.

Yea, the mono collection is the one I am going to get. I read somewhere that the mono sounds way better (engadget or gizmodo or somewhere).

This is the one I was looking at, probably get another copy for my Dad too.

u/Magoo909 · 1 pointr/beatles

If you're gonna do that, I'd just shell out the extra $38 to make sure you're getting a legit copy.

I get that entirely. Last time I checked, the mono box set on US Amazon was $100 for CD alone, and even worse for vinyl collectors. I haven't even seen one copy of the mono CD's anywhere, and I've even drove around my area looking.

That said, it definitely seems like the 2017 master of Pepper is looking like an actually perfect remix. If they restore the mono She's Leaving Home pitch and fix some minor effects the stereo screwed up from the original like the absence of some Reprise crowd SFX, Good Morning transition, etc, it might be my favorite version of the album.

u/DarthPlagiarist · 1 pointr/audiophile

This guy is right. Pick up this if you want to hear the Beatles properly:

Edit - that's also why some of the Beatles stereo mixes have wild use of stereo where things will swing wildly from one side to the other for no apparent reason - it was the studio engineers more or less just playing around without the artists.

u/nate6259 · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

The top review of the Beatles Mono Box Set on Amazon gives an excellent rundown/review of each album in stereo vs. mono.

Link TL;DR: "Your core, oddly enough, should be the mono box set. Augment this with the stereo Hard Day's Night, The Beatles For Sale, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Magical Mystery Tour, The Beatles, Abbey Road, Let It Be and stereo Past Masters."
