Must Have For Beatles Freaks
The Stereo Box Set is terrific but for completists and people wanting to hear the original vision of the band and George Martin when it comes to the earlier albums then you must buy this set. Casual fans can stick with the Stereo Box.

Great Set, Great Package and Best Of All, The Sound!
I Love This Set! The sound is fantastic to my ears. Packaged in a very sturdy box, each CD is a mini LP replica down to the last detail including the inner sleeves and inserts and there is a great booklet also included in the box. I got a very good price because the box had a few dents but still new but I would have been happy at twice the price. It would have been nice to make these available individually but a lot of people are put off by the mono, but this is how they should be heard; I would have bought the box set regardless.
I was warned that there are fakes being sold and I was worried until I received my set so be cautious.

MONO is the way to go!
I grew up with the Beatles. I remember when each album was released. I still have all the original LPs. However, when I listen to them today, I usually listen to the CD versions I bought when they came out on cds. I of course bought the stereo versions. And of course, stereo is better than mono....right?
You would think so. Recently I read several reports that the mono was better than the stereo. I couldn't believe it, and decided to check it out for my self.
Believe it or not.....the mono IS MUCH better. It packs more of a punch, and rocks more. The sound is tighter and harmonies are better balanced. I listened over and over to side by side comparisons and almost always the mono is MUCH better. Remember, stereo was in its infancy. A lot of the time it is like....the lead is in the center, and way over to the left is one harmony part, and way over to the right and in the back is another. Way back in the center, or off center is the drums..... COOL....STEREO. Man I never heard separation before...it always came from the same place.....neat!
But, it is not balanced. When you hear the mono....it is balanced. When they sing tight harmonies...it is balanced. Equal. Not, the lead voice up front in your face, and way over there and way over there on the other side are the two other guys. It gives a whole different impression.
On my iPhone (itunes) I deleted the stereo versions and only have the mono. I haven't done the comparisons with their later albums like the White Album....I would suspect the later albums released once stereo had taken hold and they were doing things with stereo in mind and making use of it the stereo might be better, or at least hold it's own. But definitely, the early albums (Please Please Me, With the Beatles, A Hard Day's Night, etc.)there is no comparison. MONO is the way to go.
For thirty five years I have made my living as a professional (classical) musician. My ears are developed to a high degree. But, I would think anyone would hear the same things I do. Mono is definitely the way to go!
After recording each album, the Beatles would stick around and do the mono mix. After that was done they would leave the studio...someone else would do the stereo mix. If you were around then (as I was), what you heard over the AM radio stations was the MONO mix. Mono is the way to go!Read full review

Good Quality - but not the Japan Mini LP's
Die Mono Box - Japan Mini LP ist mit Sicherheit eine gute Qualität. Warum Beatles Rubber Soul und Revolver dann unter der gleichen Bezeichnung "Rubber Soul" auftauchen, ist mir unverständlich. Ein weiterer Mangel ist, dass die CD's noch nicht mal, wie man eigentlich von Japan Mini LP's gewohnt ist, in einer Folie eingepackt sind??? Also... hier hat der Japan Mini LP Qualitäts - Standard sich nicht vom europäischen Standard abgehoben und die Deutschen zahlen über 70 € noch Zoll drauf. Also eine Investition in gute Japan Mini LP's ist hier dann wirklich nicht gegeben.
