Manufacturing Error Replacement Program

Some copies of this record, notably in the serial number range 11,000 and the serial range number 14,500 (there may be others), have a manufacturing aberration in track B1 "Walk Of Life". On this particular lacquer and resultant stampers at one point the extreme bass proved difficult to track on some, but not most, turntables. New stampers were subsequently made. Mobile Fidelity acknowledged the problem and by August 2019 was providing replacement discs only via the original vendors or directly to the original purchaser who bought from Mobile Fidelity or Music Direct. The faulty platters were to be returned to MoFi and destroyed. The limited time for exchanges/returns has a yet-to-be-determined expiration date.

The replacement discs BaOI information is as follows:

I have quite a few MoFi 45 and 33 pressings, so know what to expect. This is without a doubt, the best version of this album I have heard in general terms, though I say this with some reservations. The songs, production and detail are excellent and MoFi have done an excellent job with the source material, to give vinyl that is crisp, punchy and dynamic. However, when compared to other Dire Straits albums, this one clearly betrays its digital heritage on my very revealing system. It has a degree of brittleness, dryness and lacks the natural flow of a pure analogue recording/mastering. There is also a kind of digital sheen or veiling, but nothing like as pronounced as I hear on the CD or my original vinyl from the 1980s. There are places where there are too many pops and clicks, despite wet cleaning, but by far the biggest problem is that the styli on both of my high end players, skip during track B1 (Walk of Life) as has been highlighted in the database comments by others. Mine is serial number 015289. Hoping to get a return and replacement.

Owomed
Keep in mind that this album was originally recorded in the fully digital domain.

Braned
Same problem over here, they said it isn't a pressing problem but because of the loud bass. However when my tracking force is getting heavier it's been better..Good luck.Jim

Jarortr
THE definitive vinyl pressing of this album, hands down. Even tops the Stan Ricker double vinyl pressing.Having said this, the OG CD issue has better dynamics & separation, which is clearly down to the format.

ℳy★†ỦrÑ★ Wiℓℒ★₡oℳ€★TøØ
what is the OG CD issue that you reference here?

Doomwarden
REENO I've never heard of a cd player affecting dynamics? It's all 0's & 1's at the end of the day. I was talking about the vinyl side. A worse rig might display worse dynamics.

REENO THE definitive vinyl pressing of this album, hands down. Even tops the Stan Ricker double vinyl pressing.Having said this, the OG CD issue has better dynamics & separation, which is clearly down to the format. Seems true, unless the sample uploaded to DR Archives is suffering because of the playback rig. CDs are much more transparent with stats.

6snake6
Man total luck of the draw I guess but the copy I bought was the greatest sounding record I’d purchased up to that point.

Shadowbourne
Me the same! I am so in luck - sounds unbelievable !!

Darkraven
Agree with sdzsdz - vinyl is noisy. Having said that, sonics are amazing and the artwork is super-sturdy. The quality of vinyl that MOFI use, appears to be getting worse.

Arryar
The next time your snobby vinyl purist friends remark on the superior quality of AAA vinyl (and that digital recordings cut to vinyl are trash), remind them that this pressing exists. It's an audiophile staple for a reason, and the songs just happen to be great.

Mogelv
That is the point he was making. THIS album is digitally recorded, yet sounds warm as hell.

Nnulam
Perhaps I should reword my review. I meant to say that AAA vinyl isn't always king.

Pruster
kraaaamer The next time your snobby vinyl purist friends remark on the superior quality of AAA vinyl, remind them that this pressing exists. It's an audiophile for a reason, and the songs just happen to be great. Its not AAA.

Delari
I tried two examples in the 14500 range and am not impressed with the pressing quality. Very loud groove noise on some passages that disturb the quiet parts of the music, also some clicks and pops that resist all cleaning (including ultrasonic) methods. For 70 Euros that is not acceptable. Sound and mixing is superb though.

LONUDOG
I have just bought a copy in the 146xx range. After cleaning it with a standard wet electronic record cleaning machine it played with very few ticks (and just one pop). I guess you have to be a bit lucky to get a clean sounding pressing, but they definetely exist. And yeah - it sounds absolutely wonderful.

Eyalanev
DISAGREE--It's a perfectly mastered vinyl pressing, and at 45rpm no less.

Bodwyn
If this pressing were a pair of socks... It'd be a damn good pair of socks.

Yggdi
if you can get this pressing, get it! MFSL truly is a seal of approval in its own right.

Nilarius
I just got this the other day, sealed/brand new straight from Acoustic Sounds. I was disappointed to find some pretty significant scratches in the record that causes a repeating pop on one side. Otherwise, it sounds great. I think I hit the unlucky lottery a bit.

Quttaro
Just got my copy today, it is still sealed but I see the inners are split wide open and 1 corner is scuffed pretty bad (not from shipping, it was packed very well). Not impressed so far, scared at what the records may look like.

Kirizan
This MFSL pressing is beyond believable!!! I have been listening to this classic Dire Straits album ever since it came out, and have owned several issues on LP and CD. However, when I played the MFSL vinyl issue, it felt as if I am hearing it for the first time. The dynamic range on track "The Mans Too Strong", including the underlying earth-shaking timpani bass, gives you chills and makes the heart skip the beat. Mid-range bloom, drums, highs, lows, stage, on the entire album in this pressing, makes it worth at any cost you may have to pay. A must have for anyone who likes this album!

Qumenalu
Just stating a fact. The OG cd issue was practically a flat transfer. That coupled with the natural dynamics of the album, gives it a wider dynamic range than any vinyl master of this album.

Samugul
I am not interested in starting analogue vs. digital discussion. Please proceed enjoying your CD.

Cktiell
You do realize that the cd format offers a wider dynamic range than vinyl right?

Snowskin
Although the MoFi 45 vinyl is the best version of this album, I prefer the sound of my records mastered from analog.

Jerinovir
This album was recorded & mixed on DIGITAL tape. Was never analog to begin with.

Celak
There is no pure analog version of this album -- it was recorded digitally.

Zan
I tried two different copies (from the same store) and both had very loud clicks at the very beginning of the first song on side A.I returned my record so I don't remember the number of my record unfortunately but still be aware.Clicks were very loud and repetitive (definitely a defect) and the same on both copies I had tested.

Gindian
Returned one copy for this don't recall the number on that one, replacement (#013148) has the same issue for me. Probably going to return it as well.

Lemana
Easily the best sounding album in my collection. Most people know that the original LP sounds terrific as well, but mofi really perfected these songs with their Gain 2 magic and by spreading it all out on two 45 rpm LPs. Pure listening bliss. Plus the extended/uncut songs are a true blessing.

Meri
Her is a link to the vinyl reviews review of this specific pressing: https://vinylreviews.com/album/brothers-in-arms/

Wenes
very good record! excellent quality. no jump or skip. very quiet. best of vinyl can offer.

Wishamac
there appears to be a pressing fault around 2/3 of the way through Walk Of Life that affected all copies of the LP we received (dozens) in the 11,000 range. Queried MFSL and they said this is not a fault but is due to "a large amount of base on the record" - odd, given the issue appears only once and in exactly the same place, and you can see the needle and cartridge physically shake at that point. Apparently there's replacement discs available, however our suppliers weren't aware...

Biaemi
I would also love to find a resolution to this problem. I have now bought three copies of this pressing at great expense and have no resolution in sight. I think this is no where near good enough for such a highly respected company, which depends on greater quality to justify greater expense in a niche market....

Mataxe
(I am not able to see the replies to this note, and I don't know why. I believe one of the currently 9 replies is from me describing my experience with the fault identified by ChangeLog).I had the same problem as ChangeLog on two different copies in the 14,500 range. MoFi has replaced my Record 1. Hats off to my Record Store manager to sort through the problem.

deadly claw
I can't see the other replies to this for some reason, but I've bought 2 copies now that both have this exact fault, is there any avenue for recourse ? I think it quite ridiculous that such an expensive release, from a company that is meant to pride itself on being the best, would allow the faulty ones to continue to be sold.

Beranyle
Mike, get your vendor to take it up with MoFi - they should be able to navigate the bureaucracy without too much difficulty.

Felolune
MoFi has acknowledged the fault and is 'preparing replacement disks' for me.

Zuser
A pressing error I would say is a manufacturing fault 8-)

Zyangup
Add me to the 'Skip Of Life' list. The first copy had the skip but was also by far the noisiest MoFi I have ever heard. My shop replaced it with no questions asked - they're good like that. The second copy was MUCH quieter and promised to be the brilliant job that I expect from MoFi as I listened to the first side. Then the skip hit at exactly the same place on side 2 track 1. That's when I discovered the discussion here and a similar one on Steve Hoffman. I'll see what the shop can find out from MoFi about rectification with replacement discs.

Malarad
no Mike we didn't other than to return all the faulty copies to the supplier.

Precious
LOL, seriously - not a fault but a pressing error - what is a pressing error?

Anyshoun
Yep, I can confirm, mine has this too. My stylus or cartridge did not 'shake', but its a definite flaw. However, I am not so pedantic to demand a refund.Can also confirm this pressing has a few pops and cracks, however a good clean will remedy this. Keep in mind, paying over 75USD this should not happen, so i am somewhat disappointed in that regard.All in all, vinyl is very quiet and the mastering is brilliant.

ChangeLog there appears to be a pressing fault around 2/3 of the way through Walk Of Life that affected all copies of the LP we received (dozens) in the 11,000 range. Queried MFSL and they said this is not a fault but is due to "a large amount of base on the record" - odd, given the issue appears only once and in exactly the same place, and you can see the needle and cartridge physically shake at that point. Apparently there's replacement discs available, however our suppliers weren't aware... Hi, regarding the flaw in Walk of Life, were you able to resolve the issue? I have one of these and would like to find a solution. ThanksMike

After hearing this in comparison to the 1st issue CD version from 1985, I believe the MFSL edition blows the CD out of the water. Has more warmth and sonic clarity without a flatness to it. Definitely pick one up even if you're not a big Dire Straits fan.

This is the best vinyl pressing of this album, hands down, but the OG CD pressing (due to the cd medium) has better dynamics, channel separation, and signal to noise ratio.

I have disappoint with Stan's mastering, MFSL is WAAAY MUSH BETTER!!!

Nikok

Anything and everything great that has been said about this release is true. If anything bad has been said, it's not true. Just amazing. One of the absolute best overall releases I own and worth every penny. Really hope the rest of the LP releases from MFSL in the future are given the same attention to detail as this one. A perfect 10 without question.

Hey mate, I have purchased three copies of this press now and all skip at the exact same point in 'Walk of Life' on three different properly set up turntables (Technics SL1210 mk5, an upgraded Pro-Ject Expression III and a Thorens 165) with above average stylus's. Two of them are quite noisy in quiet parts of Side A, one of them is completely intolerable in the epic intro for 'Money for Nothing'. So, unfortunately, I'm not sure how you can say that anything bad said is "not true" as 3 out of the 3 I have purchased for over $300- now have been faulty. On some songs and in parts of the copies that I have that do play ok, the mastering is insanely good, which makes the faults even more intolerable........ This is the first album I've ever purchased brand new that skipped after many years buying vinyl, I actually thought people were mental reporting new records skipping as I'd never experienced this before.

Agreed! Simply Sensational as are their versions of Crime of the century and The Game

MFSL does not always nail it, but when they do...ohhhh boy! Case in point, this 2 X 45 RPM SET. Easily the best vinyl pressing in existence, and dare I say, I prefer it over the original 1985 cd in it's overall sonics. The EQ is perfect, as is the clarity and the dynamics. Worth every penny. I sure hope the other 45 RPM sets are as good as this one. Having said that, I am a little disturbed that 3 of the 4 sides on my copy were pressed slightly off-center. I expect better QC when paying top dollar for an audiophile release.

Can anybody confirm that this release uses the full versions of all songs, and not the shortened versions from the orginal single LP? (The times given here are the full versions). As I understand, the 2014 WEA 2LP release still used the shortened versions.

you secret
Both the 2014 WB LP and this MFSL pressing use the full versions.

Must agree that the MoFi 45rpm sounds best. Excellent, in fact.Although, I can't say the 20th anniversary SACD sounds THAT bad...

Before you pay $80 for this here, it's still in stock on the MFSL website for it's original $50.

saafari
it's 'out of stock' as of today but thanks for tip

MOQ
By some way, the best pressing of this album I have heard - simply jaw dropping dynamics and bottom end.

Mikale
Too expensive for my likes, but i must say, worth every penny. Awesome pressing.

Hiclerlsi
It's not expensive at all. It's 2 discs, @ 45 rpm.

DABY
How many pressings made? I have number 1910

Survivors
my number 8811 - that´s not limited, it´s numbered :-)

Lailace
I have # 3702.

Rgia
A licence agreement is the period of time which you can press...

Acrobat
Good question. I have # 3700.I recall reading some where that with each deal MoFi are only allowed to produce/sell a contractual number of units. I would guess that for each release the number of units would be different. The more important question is how many records are made from each stamper.

Comments here for those interesting in finding the best sounding version of this album.I have compared the following CDs and LPs...original 1985 standard CD Made in W. Germany by Polygram matrix 824 499-2 02 * (John Dent version)original 1985 standard LP Brothers In Arms20th Anniversary SACD, barcode 602498714980 Brothers In ArmsMobile Fidelity SACD UDSACD2099 Brothers In ArmsMobile Fidelity 45RPM LP set (this one Brothers In Arms)If you like the big full sound with a bottom end that goes down the lowest then you cannot go past the Mobile Fidelity 45RPM LP set Brothers In Arms. Compared to the MoFi SACD the SACD sounds thin, harsh and has less bottom end.Totally avoid the 20th Anniversary SACD as it has had the life compressed out of it and has clipping.In all cases the 1985 vinyl and the MoFi vinyl are better sounding than any of the CD/SACDs.However if CDs are your thing then I'd recommend either the MoFi SACD or an original 1985 CD.Note that your stereo gear may produce different results to what I have reported here and your taste in what you want may also differ to mine. So please do not be offended as I do not claim that I am right, merely reporting what I found.This testing has been done using the following gear.Amplifier - Yamaha A-S2000Phono pre amp - Acoustic Signature Tango UltimateSACD player - Yamaha CD-S2000Turntable - Acoustic Signature Mk2 with Rega RB700 arm and Ortofon Rondo Bronze MC cartridgeSpeakers - Martin Logan EthosSub - REL T1 10" version

I also have the Warner release as 33rpm double.This one sounds much better IMO, less bright, more open and much more dynamic.

Rindyt
This MFSL release is more airy in comparison to WEA 2LP @33 1/3 release.

Quphagie
  tollact: what a question? It' official MFSL and absolute sure 45rpm... But if its to expensive, there is a Version of 2006 WEA 2 LP, pressed by Pallas Germany, which sounds wunderful and normaly costs the half price of the MFSL Cu, Snow

Thozius
It is real 45 RPM? I don't think so....

Beanisend
it isthats why there are only two songs on every side and two vinyl
