Collector’s editions and premium box sets

8. October 2014

Box sets, limited editions and products in premium packaging have become extremely popular. As a specialist manufacturer of such products, optimal offers a comprehensive range of services, tailored to suit every target group, content and budget. One of our most extensive and sophisticated projects ever is the vinyl box The Beatles In Mono, produced by optimal in collaboration with Universal Music. This box includes their nine UK albums, the Magical Mystery Tour album and the band’s Mono Masters Collection on 14 180-gram vinyl records with true-to-the-original artwork. A hardcover book completes the set. Each of the vinyl records, which were remastered directly from the analogue master tapes, is also available individually.

optimal was the sole producer for the worldwide supply of this exceptional edition. The official Beatles website reads: “Manufactured for the world at optimal Media in Germany, The Beatles’ albums are presented in their original glory, both sonically and in their packaging.” This statement makes us proud.

In recent years, optimal successfully produced the The Beatles Remastered Stereo Box Set (16 CD + DVD) and The Beatles - Remastered Vinyl Stereo Box Set together with the EMI Music Group.

The Maria Callas Remastered Box Set is also highly elaborate in terms of content and features, including all her studio productions from the years 1949-1961, newly mastered and released on 41 data media. The only exceptions are immediately recognisable by the sleeve backs. The box and its comprehensive accompanying book have been manufactured in a stylish linen appearance which gives the product an attractive appeal.

The Berliner Philharmoniker has released selected interpretations on its own record label. A limited edition features Robert Schumanns Sinfonien 1-4 on four vinyl records. The elaborately designed box is covered with fine linen and includes a large-format hardcover book.
