With streaming services so accessible, like many of you, I suspect, my CDs are long ago boxed up. LPs too. But we all know nothing matches the warm, rich, full sound experience that is vinyl. I thought those days were long gone. (I haven’t seen my Klipsh speakers in so long, I’m not sure I spelled it correctly) Then my wife bought me this kitschy retro Croswell turntable. (No, it’s not my old system. But it serves a purpose.) So I’ve decided to replace my old Zeppelin collection, in its entirety. (I may skip TSRTS.) I purchased my current collection in the 80s and most of those I bought used. They were in pretty bad shape even then. But I was just a kid and the songs, pops, crackles, hums, skips and all, took me places I cannot begin to describe. My question is this. What vinyl format creates the best overall listening experience? I know Page has done reissues of all titles, twice I think. (90s and ‘15?) And I know the 2015 reissues came in deluxe editions. I read some reviews of the 2015 RI of PG that were not good. But most on this forum were favorable. So, if you had the ability to start over (oh so exciting) what format? Original releases, used but NM or VG? The 2015 RIs, new? Something else? I’m less interested in the extra material and bells and whistles that come with the deluxe editions. My main interest is sound quality. I would also appreciate any advice on avoiding scammers. I’ve seen “original pressings” still in shrink wrap (seriously) for prices too good to be true. What else should I watch out for? So, thanks for helping me kick off this journey. Maybe some of you will find it fun/interesting/nostalgic to come along. I hope so.
I want to share with everyone how I listen to the albums. Now with the newly released deluxe editions they are perfect. Some changed a lot some very little. I grew up flipping albums so these CD-Rs are just albums you don't have to flip. Any comments pro or con are welcome.
