Very nice stuff, quite interesting and enjoyable. There is a lot of variety on these disks. Most of the mic placement is close to the instruments, so you get a "you are there" perspective. I didn't have quite the surface noise of the 1st reviewer, just an occasional tick. I would recommend cleaning the disks before playing. Bottom line, this is a welcome addition to the vinyl world and a disk any audiophile and music lover should have in their collection.

Good music and fun to listen to very realistic and detailed and would be really amazing if it were not for the surface noise. Which is shame because that's the whole reason for D2D. Whats the point other than the for sheer dynamics of D2D if the vinyl is noisy. All the aspects are there for an amazing record its 180g (though I don't think its virgin vinyl) 45 rpm direct to disc and a Bernie Grundman was involved all the right stuff on a noisy vinyl so I can only give it 3 stars for that
