As far as I know the main issue is that they don't disclose where they get the source material for their releases. Is it a digital remaster or is it a analog original? The two releases I have, Nick Drake "Pink Moon" and Tom Waits "Swordfishtrombones" sound amazing. Very quiet, clean vinyl with quality packaging. I have heard that some of their releases don't sound as good as the original but have not been able to do any comparisons myself. On the other hand, the $10 Scorpio 180g "Audiophile" releases sound awful. I've tried three because of their price, Miles "Kind of Blue" Brubeck "Time out" and Sade "Diamond Life", and took them all back. Very noisy pressings that sound like someone used a casette copy as the master.
