    If you click on the link to buy it under the discography, the URL indeed says 2017 Definitive Edition.

Kevin Gray cut the 2008 reissue of Downward Spiral from Bob Ludwig's 10th anniversary remastered stereo version, and I don't think the DE is better sounding than that. Gray also cut the original Social Network soundtrack vinyl pressing; it's debatable whether another mastering will yield better results...
    I actually think the 2017 TDS remaster is the only one that sounds objectively worse. There are parts of it that are better, but there's an extreme lack of dynamics in songs like I Do Not Want This, where there are three distinct levels of volume originally, but only two on the 2017 version. It's so compressed in fact, that instead of the track getting louder during the chorus, the instrumental stays the same volume as the pre-chorus and the vocals actually get quieter. For any improvements the 2017 version offers, moments like this detract too heavily for them to provide a net gain over the 10th Anniversary remaster.

    I think TSN is perfect the way it is, and I don't see how a remaster could provide anything more to it.

    I don't have a GREAT turntable, by any means (it's an entry-level Audio-Technica automatic model with built-in cartridge, though I have upgraded the preamp), kinda noisy output, and not a great stereo soundstage or much treble extension. But weird mastering stuff like that ^ is still VERY apparent when I listen to records on it. A cutting engineer that knows what they're doing can make digital mastering sound great but only if the dynamics aren't already completely squashed.

    Looks like Rough Trade orders are getting cancelled. But it’s not all bad news.

    Perhaps there's a NIN store exclusive coming out on 7/24 and then wider release in the fall.

    Three have popped up on ebay in the past 12 hours - two of them have been priced very optimistically. I guess some folks have heard about the repress and are trying to cash-in before the news spreads more widely.

    while i'm glad it seems like some new (old) stuff is going to be dropping soon, i literally have no money, and i don't know how i'll be able to justify buying ANY of it any time soon.

    If the 3LP definitive edition rumors are true, what can we expect for the third LP?
    Tracks from the abandoned remix EP? More outtakes like Dinner With Sean?

    This link found on the discography section of nin.com was the source of that rumor.

    Placed on purpose for hype? Wouldn't be the first time TR and crew did something subtle that they knew the community would find.

    Itís not subtle. The link is as old as the Patriots Day and Quake, which are still in ďcoming soonĒ purgatory.

    Me too. The good news is the catalog number that was leaked with the Rough Trade announcement was unique and in line with other recent TR/NIN vinyl releases. So I believe it physically exists, i just donít expect more than the original canonical tracklist.

    If there is a 3xLP version, it's probably not new stuff, just the original album on three records. Because.
