I won this LP both on second hand for 10 euro its beutifull performance ambiance recording pressing a delicate album...
if you enjoy LA4's music you may like this one too. IMO all LA4 records are very good pressings.

Got my Etsuro Gold yesterday. Mount it up and this little piece of gold really sings immediately, very good sound indeed. All the best qualities are there which I don't need to repeat.

The only complain is the mounting distance. The screw holes are too far forward. I can't reach the required overhang even if I put the cartridge all the way to the front. It is 1mm short. A friend who tried to mount the Gold on a Graham Elite arm also found the overhang was about 1mm short. The shortcoming can easily be overcome by moving the arm base back a little. It is not a problem.

Nice! Which TT is this? Is that SAT arm on the right?

I only have the LA4 album with the peacock on the cover. Great album and both of these pressings have excellent sound.
