I own no UQHR pressings but the ones I have heard were very good sounding. They were quiet and flat. A glance at what UQHR LPs bring on the used market certainly confirms they were "investment grade" collectables.
One does note that MoFi, the folks who promoted UQHR no longer use that vinyl formula AND they no longer release discs in 200+ gram super heavy vinyl.
Current issues promoted as "GAIN 2™ Ultra Analog LPs" are pressed in 180 gram vinyl. If heavier vinyl is inherantly better why the lighter 180 gram weight?
