I want to buy my Dad a record for the holidays. I've found 2 options, and I'm not sure which would be best in terms of sound quality, so please let me know what you think:

Option 1: Sealed UK pressing
Option 2: Sealed 180 g pressing (does playing this require any modification/special equipment for one's record player?)

Thanks in advance for any help!

What album are you talking about?
180 gram pressing will play on any turntable.
What kind of system will this be played on.

180 gram means nothing, really. I have 180 gram pressings that sound like right out of the sealed sleeve - with pops, cracks and tons of surface noise. Watch out out for low quality control on modern pressings by big labels! I have conventional lower weight vinyl that sounds pristine. So, where ideally a heavier vinyl is better from a standpoint of warpage, etc.; in reality it's just a single feature that ultimately has no deciding factor or meaning that defines sound quality. ee
