  1. My personal opinion is this 1/ They don't need the money to reform....that is actually a good reason. How sad would it be if it was just for the cash. 2/ If they got back together , it would have to be brilliant. Celebration Day proves it could be worthy , Robert Plant singing in 2014 is fine & Jimmy & JPJ look in good shape. Jason Bonham is the only choice for drummer anyone else FORGET IT!!! 3/ If they got back together would we actually appreciate it ? And could we afford to see it. Celebrities might but what about ordinary fans? 4/ If they got back together how many gigs do yo
  2. I have taken my time playing all the reissues and I am now playing the companion disc. Really enjoying it & yes I did my own karaoke to the bathroom song.
  3. It depends what CD player & equipment you have. I have compared my CDs to the vinyl. Yes the vinyl is better but very little in it
  4. I am now listening to the Paris concert , sounds really good to me, very exciting & raw
  5. Nice to hear some nice hifi systems listed. Over the years I have bought separates & I worked hard , drunk less , stayed in to get what I got . My system as follows. Turntable Michell Gyrodec, Tecno Tonearm , Ortofon 2m Red Cartridge, Martin Bastin power supply. Cd players Meridian 507 & Denon 1510. A Denon PMA 1510 (Which I now use as a Pre Amp) and my power amps are Vincent SP991 plus mono blocs . My speakers are B&W 703 and I use Chord cables. I made a decision 10 years ago not to bother to watch live bands regularly anymore besides I am not a fan of 21st Century Rock & inst
  6. If you live in the UK & you want a system with a turntable , amp, cd player? And speakers (small floor standing are a good idea) try Richer Sounds or Sevenoaks Hi Fi . If you want a really good sound including the turntable set aside £1000. Good turntables are Rega, Project or second hand technics 1210. Good Amp makes Rotel,Denon,Marantz,Yamaha,Cambridge Audio. Good speaker makes B&W,Monitor Audio,Kef,Q Accoustics. Go to Ikea for an equipment table & make sure in yr room your speakers are ear height level & roughly 7 foot away from your armchair . Silly as it may sound if y
  7. I'm listening to the LP on my headphones . Much improved clarity than previous copies I have owned . Buy with confidence
  8. Hello folks. I just wanted to say I have so far listened to Led Zep 1 on cd & vinyl & Led Zep 2 on cd. I am very impressed with the remasters & a sonic improvement over previous vinyl & cd versions.
  9. I am just playing my cd copy of Led Zep 2 & to my ears it sounds much fresher & cleaner & subtle stuff like Robert Plants vocals on Thank You. The drum solo on Moby Dick sounds powerful as well & Bring it on home beginning bit sounds less crusty if you know what I mean. A very good remastering. Very pleased.
  10. Despite being tempted by the Box sets , they were too expensive for me & I opted for the double CDs & single 180 gram lps. I played the cd first . It sounds much better than my 80s & 90s version , the stereo is spread out more , background is quieter but still hear the little things such as Robert Plant laughing on You Shook Me & the subtle wiped out vocal in Babe I'm gonna Leave You . The whole feel is fresher a bit like comparing a better Blu Ray copy to a previous DVD.
  11. i have heard good things about the KEFs but small speakers have their advantages & disadvantages (cleaner sound vs a full range sound)
  12. My speakers are B&W 703 which I bought (and sweated over) 11 years ago. My Stereo is Gyrodec turntable, Tecnoarm , Ortofon 2m Red cartridge (underrated ) , Martin Bastin power supply. Cd players Meridian 507 & Denon 1510. Amp Denon PMA 1510 (which I now use as a pre amp) Power Amps Vincent SP 991 plus Monoblocs. It has taken me 30 years to get to a sound that that resembles an aural time machine , very happy with sound.
