Beatles CD box set

Hello all,

Normally a vinyl only guy, but looking to procure a CD Box Set to play with my wife.

Thinking of this :   The Beatles The U.S. Albums CD Box Set – The Beatles Official Store

Anybody have any experience with this or any CDs coming from this website.

Speakers are full range single driver, and headphone listening will be through a Stax rig, so if the CD mix is bright it will be tough to take.


TIA for any insight.

Cheers,          Crazy Bill



Hello Jay,

Is this the mono set you refer to, or an earlier edition.

The Beatles - The Beatles in Mono (The Complete Mono Recordings) - Music

No time now, but will be responding to others soon.

Second the votes on the Mono Box Set - I bought this when it came out and have been more than happy with it. It covers just about their whole catalog and is a joy to listen to.

If you grew up with the American albums, you will enjoy the set in your link...  plus, each disc gives you the mono and stereo versions of the album... For the British albums, the mono versions have the most interesting versions of the songs... my opinion only !!

I just inherited the Beatles Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Anniversary Edition 6 Disc Super Deluxe.  It's been sitting in the trunk of our car with other stuff collected. I noticed that the hard bound book was still wrapped.  Typically I'm not a fan of these sets but I own it now. I too own original Stax SRX Mk 3 's with like three power supplies SRD 7 SRM Mk2  and SRM T1 and the extension cord in original wrap, never used.

Crazy Bill,

This looks like the box set of The Beatles in Mono I’m talking about. I bought mine at Borders on the day it was released, 9-9-09. I’m not aware of an earlier version.

I am also a huge Beach Boys’ fan, and I’ve come to the conclusion that Capitol Records committed many sins in turning the excellent mono versions of my favorite records from the 1960s into these awful fake stereo versions. Of course, on my childhood suitcase stereo, who could tell the difference?

Hope this helps.
