  1. I bought 1V & Houses Of The Holy a few days ago. I'm a musician, & sound engineer for 35 yrs. Something didn't sound right to me. I got out my US HOH & Australian 1V pressings & AB'd them. Older pressings win, sorry, & they're not even "classic" pressings. Too much high mid eq'd into the remasters. One thing I will say about the remasters is that they are very quiet. Definitely a more natural, more comfortable listening experience with the old pressings though. Sometimes remastered vinyl is better, often it isn't. This isn't the place to go into a technical dissertation about the effects of digitizing the original 2 track masters, but it always has a deleterious effect. I'd be curious to see if the cds, or hi res downloads, sound better than the remastered vinyl, which they may well do, as they haven't had to go thru another digital to analog conversion. I'm obviously pretty picky because of what I do for a living, but I'll be attempting to return the reissues & will look for the best all analog pressings I can find.
