Which was the reason Zeppelin's sound went from great to terrible

I wouldn't agree this contributed to a decline in their sound in any way.  It worked amazingly well on the songs it was written for (NFBM, Achilles etc).

So 2 songs that were played live when Jones started using this instrument?  What about the rest of the sets?

That's awesome. I expect they'll soon replace this with Eminem's hoodie and mic.

When did this happen?

From what ive gathered this bass sounded great in person. Seems it doesn't translate as well through the recordings. It's never affected my listening experience in a serious way.

This. Any live recordings we have of Jonsey using the Alembic capture only a fraction of what the audience would have heard, and felt, in the arena. John Entwistle also used Alembics in concert. There's zero chance the bass players from two of the heaviest live acts of the 1970's would have used them if they didn't kick serious ass.

Info on Entwistle's Alembics, including an interview where he discusses why he started using them: https://www.thewho.net/whotabs/gear/bass/bass7585.html
