Pallas is a family operation - Europe's last bastion in the vinyl record market. Now the Beastie Boys have commissioned Pallas to manufacture their newest LP. A report by Jana Wochnik- Sachtleben.

Holger Neumans Shirt reads: Die Erde ist eine Scheibe. wich means: "The Earth is a slice." We wouldn´t say "The earth is flat", we´d say that. Funny thing is "Scheibe" or slice we use for Records, too. xD

Who would want pops and crackling in the recording on records? I want it quiet and only music, I see the pops and crackling as defects. Crazy or what!

Interesting that he's using a classic Gerrard 301 turntable. Gerrard 301's and Thorens TD124's are still the best, some 60 years on.
The German pressings are better then Japanese
pity they use shit innersleeves

DJs at loveparade wanted records not for scratching, but regular mixing records to play music
German classical records are no guarantee of a pop free listening experience. I prefer a German made CD's that are 99.5% with no defects. Pick your own poison. I buy a lot of used vinyl because I can get it real cheap. Like I said, pick your own poison.

Why can’t American pressing plant have THIS sort of quality control???

I can't believe this! Instead of going backwards the music industry should introduce a new high definition audio disc. A Blu-Ray disc with uncompressed audio tracks, 24-bit, 192Khz. Studio quality music at home! this is how music should be in the 21st century!! Screw vinyl!

That machine dropping that record into the sleeve like that. Ugh...
we still need vinyl records!

Disappointing to see that a record was pressed in about 5 seconds. Japanese records are far superior and record plant will take a minimum of 20 seconds to press one record, and it shows

What company did you get your silver station from. Did you make it
At the beginning, this is not pressing, its mother disc.

i hope turntable and reel to reel is come back
It's a shame Pallas screwed the pooch with the U.S Super Deluxe version of Led Zeppelin "Houses Of The Holy". "The Ocean" has a massive distortion in the left channel. The European version is fine. Oh well, $120 down the drain.
