I'm so glad to hear that George! I hope you're continuing to enjoy them.
Kelley, I've now listened to everything except With The Beatles, Beatles For Sale, Help, Yellow Submarine and Let It Be. Even with headphones the discs are quiet; not CD quiet, but very good for vinyl. No distortion so far.
The only record I don't like so much is Rubber Soul because it's the Martin 1987 remix; I prefer the original 1965 mix for the sound even in it's wide separated glory. I hear more detail in the 1965 If I Needed Someone, especially during the guitar solo. Now that was a cd (1965) to cd/lp (1987) comparison, but I would love to get my hands on a 1965 stereo Rubber Soul even though I still prefer that one in mono.
I used to think that the 12 inch cover images in Box Of Vision would satisfy visually, but I have to tell you, having the actual album covers is great. I think vinyl is also a tactile experience as much as aural.
