I have a factory-sealed copy of this longbox edition in perfect condition. I'm amazed that it's been selling for such big bucks.
Magis
Why this cd cost so much? Anyone can explain? Thanx
Chuynopana
Apparently sourced from the original master tapes. I bought my copy over 5 years ago @ Ebay. Sound quality is top notch.

I heard the TARGET CD, it is not that much different from other versions. I really can't tell it apart from any other pressing.I think the best version should be the German original LP (German version) and the 2009 Remaster (German Version Only).The German Version of this album has a different mastering and it's different. For example, Computer Love has a huge channel collapse before the first minute ends, whereas Computer Liebe does not have this glitch.The problem is present in all masters of the English Version, LP and CD.
Rias
Read the notes on this version. I have one and it sounds great. In fact, it's the only one I play.
Thohelm
I'm totally amazed that I have this. Didn't collect it. I bought it new, in long box, back in 1985.
Modred
Seriously? I have this CD! What if it's a bit used? My brother bought this in Europe around that time. Everything is written the same, even the runout & rights society. How can i really be sure it's the same edition?
LØV€ YØỮ
If it has the Warner Bros logo on the disc, it's the same edition. Congrats. :)

Scalpers have gotten to this release too. It used tg sell for $40 on ebay.Save your money and get one of the hundred other cd pressings.

I suspect this transfer is not quite "flat" and actually just has pre-emphasis applied (but apparently not flagged in the TOC or subcode). If you apply the de-emphasis EQ, it sounds exactly like the Computerwelt CD mastering, to my ears.There is also a mastering error: the first beats (at around 0:22–0:23) of "Numbers" have severe aliasing. You can see it in a detailed spectrogram and you can hear that the some of the arpeggio synth sounds have some extra "tone" to them as compared to other releases, especially in the left channel.I posted a spectrogram comparison in another forum.
Iaran
I think that's only a mastering decision. The European CD isn't that bright, but no pre-emphasis in my opinion, it's only a tad on the bright side. It would also be quite unusual for a CD of this period to have pre-emphasis IMO
