One of our good customers had this to say about some Hot Stampers he purchased recently:
Wanted to drop you a note and let you know you have me now not a skeptic any more.
Case in point, over the 12 days of Christmas I acquired an [original] Led Zeppelin IV from you. I also received one from a family Member.
You are absolutely correct in that not all pressings sound the same.
I played both copies in a shootout and yours hands down was the better of the two.
The most recent purchase has me sitting staring at my speakers in amazement.
Both the Rumours and the But Seriously Folks are AMAZING!
Thanks for taking the time to prove that the stampers are not the end-all and be-all of top quality sound.
We love it when our customers take the time and make the effort to do their own shootouts, especially when we win, which is what happens roughly 99% of the time.
Having an original pressing doesn’t guarantee you the best sound, but we sure as hell do.
