This is a good press, but not an excellent press. Its clean, quiet and the mastering is super crisp. Its cut hot, but not to the point of any audible distortion. My only complaint is the bottom end, which I wish was boosted a bit and punchier. Mid and highs sound spectacular though, with good separation, but they dominate the soundstage.

Good pressing. A little bright and loud to my ears. But overall, really clear, punchy and detailed
