Pink Floyd Discovery Box Set - All Albums for £65 @ Sainsburys Entertainment

47
Found 22nd Aug 2012
Every Pink Floyd studio album recently remastered in a box set for £65. Cheapest I've seen this, usually around £80-90.

Individual albums can be round the £8 mark so not a bad price if you was going to buy a lot of them

Could also be a good idea for a future birthday present or Xmas

My first deal, just signed up
Great first deal and welcome. have some heat.
That's a first at this price. Decent.
Great find.
£86 on Amazon
Don't forget Quidco on this deal
Fantastic, purchased without a second's hestitation. Unlike the Blur boxset, there's a good chance that this will forever be a "complete" set.

Don't forget to use code SETENA12 to knock it down to £58.50 straight away!
Hot and welcome.
As if Gilmour and co aren't already rich enough, and, remastered usually means bad news
remember Nectar points too!
I bought this for a similar price from Amazon about 6 months ago.

A great box set, slightly let down by poor sleeves for the individual cd's.

Actually they did a fantastic job on these remasters. These are the best the albums have ever sounded. Unlike most remasters that just jack up the loudness and destroy any dynamic range they have done a top job here, one of the best remastering projects of recent times I think.

No they're on an outdated format called C.D. Vinyl is what Paleolithic man used, sounded great but ear technology has since evolved.

No, I'd rather not have limited dynamic range, inner groove distortion, pops and ticks, turntable rumble, higher noise floor, mono bass, poor instrument separation, flipping sides half way through... although I guess that analogue warmth makes up for it?

When CDs are done right there is no contest, these are done right. Although you will always get the vinyl fetishist who thinks analogue = perfect reproduction of the original, but vinyl is a pretty poor format in reality and it is not the case at all.

Does Dark Side of the Moon sound better than the SACD version?

The code is for new customers only. It's been mentioned on a lot of other deals recently, I'm glad I waited for this one!

That I don't know, I have heard vinyl versions of their main albums (DSOTM, The Wall, Animals and WYWH), a couple of the 1994 remasters, and the 80's CDs. It beats them, I think the SACD was done by James Guthrie who also did these so I would imagine the stereo will sound similar, but with the SACD being 5.1 too then I guess it depends if you are set up for 5.1.

I would probably get the SACD if you want 5.1, but otherwise if you want all the Albums in stereo only then this boxset is a nice thing to get.

It seems that Pink Floyd albums have been released on just about every format and combination one can imagine except the one I want which would be a downloadable 24 bit flac file. I'm not sure why this has not been done as I'm sure many Pink Floyd fans are audiophiles. Then there would be no need to argue about whether vinyl or CD is best as this would outshine both.
One of these days I'll get on my bike and get round to buying this flaming thing in the flesh. Really need to fill in the empty spaces in my collection. Seems a great deal for the money. All you need to do is find the time to sit back, have a cigar, and enjoy your bottom getting comfortably numb as you listen to all the songs, back to back.
Hmm, this is a difficult decision. On the one hand I have realised that I only have 3 Floyd albums on CD (Dark Side, The Wall and The Division Bell) so it's a bargain for 11 albums I only have on vinyl.

On the other hand I only ever listen to Wish You Were Here on vinyl and I'd rather get the Experience edition of that 'cos it's so good you can never have too many copies.

Then again I do like bits of Animals, The Final Cut and A Momentary Lapse which I guess I'd listen to more if I owned the CDs.

Of course in a year's time they'll release 'em all as 24bit FLAC files and I'll need to buy WYWH, DSOTM and The Wall again!

Should I do it?

Voted hot while I work out how big my overdraft fees are this month. Thanks OP!

Can I ask, what the Experience editions are - I've seen them for sale and wondered exactly what that means? Thanks!

The experience editions include live and alternative versions of the album tracks, in addition to the remastered album. There are also Immersion editions for stupendous amounts of money which includes DVDs, blu-rays and 5.1 remixes.

Just seen that Amazon are charging £95 for this set as an MP3 download - which makes the CD set a great bargain.

But then again according to The Cameliser the CD has fallen below £55 quid in the past...
Thank you
This is the best box set to come out for ages.
I cannot justify the purchase at the moment as I have all of the Albums on Vinyl and/or CD already.
I have aslo got these Albums as MP3's which i ahve re-encoded onto one CD-r for my car.
(this was all albums except the wall, as I already had it on another car CD-r).
So i can listen to all of them back to back. I have started to do this on my work jouney's from yesterday and have now reached "Chapter 24".
So i have a lot more to listen to yet.........

PS:
These editions do not include the extras, these are remastered original albums.
The Experiance editions feature extra discs/tracks
i.e. The Wall

The "immersion" editions are the ones to get if you can afford them!
i.e. DSOTM

I may change my mind though and treat myself to an early Crimbo present.........

You obviously do not have a decent turntable. Nor have you ever had the chance to compare CD vs vinyl in a controlled environment. Poor you.

My £1200 Cyrus DCD8 SE CANNOT match my £770 Michell Tecnodec. With the vinyl, I swear it seems there is another dimension. It's like VHS vs Blu-ray .
