Sound quality of etched vinyl

    There's an album I'm interested in buying on vinyl and it appears to come in two versions, - a standard black vinyl pressing, and a black vinyl pressing with a pattern etched onto it. I know that picture discs are generally considered inferior to black vinyl from a sound quality perspective and tend to have higher surface noise, but what about etched vinyl? Am I likely to hear noise each time the stylus passes over the etched section of the disc?

    I had a laser etched copy of a Split Enz album years ago...never noticed any nasties. In those days I was using an old Dual TT

    I've a mint laser etched copy of Paradise Theatre by Styx.... It's one of the best sounding records I own.

    I have had old picture discs and I thought they sounded ok, but it was a long time ago and music memory isn't great.
