Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it...) this has not been the case with any of the releases I've bought from them over the past 2 years or so, at least not as far as I know.

True, but for every crappy VHS sourced copy there's an original. At least in most cases.
Fact remains ofcourse that most Italian companies want too large amounts of money for them.

let's be honest : most releases of them wouldn't even cut it about 4 years ago quality-wise, even soundly beaten by themselves when they ran NoShame US

i have a couple (Four Flies On Grey Velvet, Horrible, Door Into Darkness, Blood Castle) and these are adequate, but looking at most screen caps from some of their other releases, putting VHS-like dupes on a DVD isn't going to win them any fans, even if they release movies that no-one else would touch

As cool as they'd be to have I don't think that the original VHS tapes are really a good option or a feasible one in most cases. Some of them are expensive as hell, the few original VHS copies of Giallo A Venezia (I use this as an example because it's the title I want most from that list they put online a while back.) I've seen on ebay have gone for $200+, the tapes were PAL (not a problem for me but probably will be for most in North America, even more so than with DVD), and they were probably not English friendly either. Even if price, system, and language weren't an issue their DVD would still win out because there is not really any chance of further quality degradation like with VHS so long as the DVD was properly manufactured.
I know I'm probably not convincing anyone that they're good here and I'll admit I don't think that they're really an ideal label but they make all these movies a lot more accessible and attractive compared to the alternatives and I think they deserve way more credit than people give them.

You're absolutely right about those VHS', no doubt about that. And although I really want to see many of the more obscure movies out there, I still stand by my earlier post:

Just read this about that new label "One 7 Movies" :

It has been established that it IS MYA, under a new name.
I'm not surprised.

Looks like they're going the "X-Rated Kult" route (changed their name numorous times and some dodgy releases)

That's disappointing...I just canceled the preorders I had on a few of their releases.

Looks like these are out of print (they may have been for a while now, not sure).

Only ones I got were Horrible and Graveyard Disturbance. I thought they were too expensive at the time, but now I'm glad I got them when I did.

My last MYA purchase was the 1987 Predator ripoff ALIEN FROM THE DEEP. Typically cheesy, bad Italian cash-in but still a fun watch. The label was by no means a quality company but I always admire the will of people who at least try to put stuff out, especially movies that nobody else will touch. I'm sure the people behind the label were diehard film buffs and if they had more money they would've tried to build the label up but the fact of the matter is not many people buy this stuff. At least not many people blind-buy many of the films if the quality is known to be barely watchable.

Their DVDs were just too damn expensive for what they were: Barebone releases in (mostly) mediocre quality.
I only have Mario Caiano's Without Trace. A nice "school girl in peril" Giallo.
Quality was fine on that one.

Yeah that is why I never purchased any myself. I refuse to pay more then $15 for DVDs anymore. DVDs need to go bye bye they are over priced garbage and scratch easily.

Are you sure that one was a MYA release? I thought it was from some studio called One 7 Movies.

It's just weird that there was never much information out there about MYA as a company. I can't remember them ever even having a website..

I only ever owned a few of their releases, the two Argento titles and Horrible. I got rid of the Four Flies DVD as soon as the superior UK Blu-ray showed up.

Pretty sure MYA and One 7 Movies are the same people.
