I’m in awe. I really am. The sound of these One Steps is so spectacular that listening to “standard” vinyl is gonna be a problem when more of these box sets are coming out.

We've all heard these songs a thousand times or more but the minute I put this one step on I felt like I was hearing them for the first time.
It sounded totally different. Clear separation, deep bass and spacious imaging. Each instrument cleary definable.
In fact every one step I’ve bought so far has been the best sounding version of that particular album.

Ok so I got the early pressing of this vinyl. I will say that they sound great. But...they were very noisy. Both discs were replaced at no charge. Also the covers had seam splits and both covers were replaced with no charge. So kudos to Mobile Fidelity for their customer care. That being said the vinyl sounds as good as possible. 0ne must remember that these type of pressings are only limited by the master tapes. If the master has distortion so will the pressing. So the sound is limited to the master tapes NOT by the format.

My copy is really mint, no surface noise all throughout the record playing. Sounds marvellous. Really happy with this release

Pathetic...bought both Eagles One Steps...Noisy as hell even after a wet wash...all 4 cardboard sleeves have seam splits and disc 2 of Desperado is warped...no more One Steps for me...

Both of mine were dish warped, waiting on replacements. I advise to open and inspected immediately.

What one has to understand is if an album or song was recorded well originally it will sound better on these one steps. And if it sounds like in your face midrange like the song Out of Control it will still sound like shit. While the first 4 Eagles albums have some great songs they weren't really considered audiophile masterpieces as say the Dire Straits albums. Hotel California and The Long Run should sound the best because they were originally recorded the best. That being said these Eagles reissued one steps will be about as good as you can get on vinyl. Worth over $100? That's an individual choice.

Just amazing… in every respect…. Wow. And absolutely worth every cent….

Lord have mercy this is good. No problems with any duplicates or warped wax. I won’t use the term “soundstage” because everyone else does. Saturday Night has AMAZING VOCAL QUALITY. I’ve never listened to this entire album much but I do now. CANT WAIT FOR ON THE BORDER (The Eagles’ best LP front-to-back)!

My LPs came warped. Sound is amazing. Sadly has crackle and pops.
