For the early albums, mono. But otherwise stereo.

I own the 2009 box sets in both formats.  ;)

I take it you prefer Sgt. Pepper in mono?

Yes,  It's very different than the STEREO LP.

I get mono is how the guys intended the record to sound, but I can't help but prefer the stereo mix to be honest.

That is debatable.  ;D

Mono was the common thing in those days, so it's obvious that they choose that option (or Parlophone did). I guess stereo then wasn't what stereo is now. Had The Beatles known what the possibilities of stereo could be, they might have made another decision. But that is just speculation of course.
