I think I've made it clear on here my love for the mono mixes of the Beatles' albums, as well as my near-obsession with RAM, but the mono mix of RAM is just fantastic. Anyone else here prefer it to the stereo?

I don't notice much difference between the stereo and mono mix. Just some minor differences. Not like the 'White Album' or 'Sgt. Peppers'. I to also love mono mixes of songs especially if they were intended to be in mono which is most of the songs from the 1960's.

I agree there aren't nearly as many differences between the 2 mixes of RAM as there are in the Beatles' albums, but some of the cross-fades are a bit smoother and the bass and backing vocals are more upfront in mono…it just breathes a bit better, in my opinion. You can't go wrong either way, though…it's RAM! :D

Totally agree over Ram. I find the mono a less heavy listen compared to the stereo if that makes sense. I suppose I agree with Dr Beatle saying that it breathes a bit better.

Does anyone have a needle drop of RAM's mono mix? I am very eager to listen.

Found one in Mono, I 16/44, I want a 24/96 so I can really compare the mixes. The one I got sounds muddier, but Mono could indeed sound better in the long run.

I have copies of both on vinyl, and while there are some differences I haven't found them noticeable enough to declare a personal "clear winner" between the two. ┬áNice that RAM is getting this kind of love though…
