My copy of LP1 skips in the first half a minute, due to visible dents in the vinyl. How did that get past QC? This makes the grading of the media technically F. Also it is lightly warped. So much for the « amazing » Optimal…

Does anyone know where to purchase the Optimal pressing (ideally from the US)?

Awesome pressing!!
My copy has both vinyl perfectly flat, and dead silent, no issues to report, they play fantastic. Packaging is perfect too.
Very happy for this purchase!
