As mentioned, Sade's six albums of smooth, sultry R&B are collected and remastered in a new vinyl box set, This Far, due out on October 9 via Sony Legacy. 1984's Diamond Life, 1985's Promise, 1988's Stronger Than Pride, 1992's Love Deluxe, 2000's Lovers Rock, and 2010's Soldier Of Love are all pressed on 180-gram heavyweight black vinyl for the set, and presented in a white casebound box.

Here are more details about the meticulous remastering process, done at Abbey Road Studios:

Revisiting the audio, the band and Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios worked from high resolution digital transfers of the stereo master mixes, from the original studio recordings, remastered at half-speed using Miles’ own unique restored Neumann VMS80 cutting lathe, to perform the 12 sides of vinyl lacquer cuts. The elaborate, half-speed mastering process produced exceptionally clean and detailed audio whilst remaining faithful to the band’s intended sound. No additional digital limiting was used in the mastering process, so the six albums benefit from the advantage of extra clarity and pure fidelity, preserving the dynamic range of the original mixes for the very first time.

The six album sleeves have been meticulously reproduced in exact detail with authentic paper and printing methods, perfectly replicated for the first time since their original release, and assembled in the outer box which was designed by Tom Hingston Studios in London.

And here's the exploded view:
