Marvin Gaye "What's Going On" new 45RPM MOFI UD1S


I've had this title for short while now and have listened to it several times.

First off, completely FLAT pressing and pristine surfaces...very quiet.  Box and accessories, are again, top-notch.

The sound is very dynamic and open, but is a smidgen bright on my system.  It seems to me, (I have all of these UD1S releases) that the newer/next title(s) have been this way also?  They progressively get brighter with each release.  Maybe it's me, but that's what I am hearing.  Not a ton so, but just a tad tipped up.

I do have a US & UK copy of this title and this UD1S does indeed sound better, but not as much of a difference as with some of the other titles.  I also have the MOFI ORG first version of this and it's really close.  Yes, the UD1S is better, but by a slim margin.

Try the song "Mercy Mercy Me" or the title track "What's Going On" to hear what this format can do.

I noticed that MOFi is now calling the Ultra Disc 1 Step (UD1S) "Super Vinyl" in all their marketing.  Maybe there is a new Avenger in the wings...   :-)

@mofimadness my copy arrived today. As you described, very flat, pretty quiet vinyl, I can see thru the vinyl like my other Super Vinyl records. 
I love the first disc but sides  3 and 4 are knockouts for the dynamics in my opinion. Low end on Right On is deeeeep with the percussion and flute placement really great from right to left. 
Phenomenal record and by far the best sounding copy I have of it. 
Oh, and to me this record is not as 'bright' as the previous Simon and Garfunkel one but I do hear  a bit of extra shimmer on some of the triangles and bells but not overdone
