    Sounded pretty good once I cranked up the volume. Flat, no surface noise. The record comes in one of those really flimsy cardboard sleeves which I’m not a fan of but it’s fine. It was between this or an outrageously priced used Classic Records copy, and I’d say it’s quite the bang for your buck.

      I’m not sure what I think about this release as 1) I’m not a LZ aficionado and 2) I’m not familiar with the nuts and bolts of remastering an album but this release sounds a little muddled to me. It’s good and I doubt I’ll spend a lot of money to get an older copy but I expected more definition, especially with the drums. Maybe it’s just me. :shrug:

        for guys having the pissing contest down below,yes jimmy page helped with the eq settings and overall sound of the record,,but he did not cut the vinyl record, as jimmy page is not a mastering engineer capable of operating a lathe,,,,, john davis was the one who operated the lathe ,cut the laquer and sent the laquer to the pressing plants......it may be confusing to some because it says mastered by jimmy page,, but what it really means is page told john davis ,,, what he wanted the record to sound like and then johnny D cut the record the way jimmy wanted it.... just like eddie kramer was hendrixs engineer on his albums but kramer didnt cut any laquers

          So what people talk about when they think this sounds bad is most likely the digital mastering. I myself was expecting this to be a great sounding issue but after listening I felt like it was missing something and still prefererad my older 70s issue. I thought it had a lot of detail with a clean press but for some reason sounded very flat and sterile. If you are looking for the best sounding new versions of these albums I hear that the Classic Records releases are a good choice. They are very expensive but are made by people who really care and do great mastering for vinyl. I myself am getting one and doing a blind test to see which I think sounds best between the 70s issue, 2014 remaster and 2007 Classic Records version. In the end its a good record and if you dont mind that much its just a great deal, but personally I would go for many 70s reissues that are in NM condition over this.

          Update:
          The Classic Records release by Grundman are easily superior for some albums and closer with others, they are never worse than the 2014 reissues however.

          Equipment used:
          Rega RP1 with Nagaoka MP-110 Cartridge
          Cyrus 2 Amplifier
          Sustem Fidelity SF-3050 Tower Speakers
          Custom made HQ Cables

            Can anyone explain the key difference between this release and this one (https://www.discogs.com/Led-Zeppelin-Led-Zeppelin/release/8605699)? Both have the same matrix runouts, label, both same countries and dates. Not sure which one to add to my collection.

              Lovely remaster. Bonnos bass drum is not as dominant in the mix as my copy from the mid seventies but that's not a bad thing as I remember it being rather overpowering and causing vibration through my turntable at the time. Very worthwhile purchase. (HMV U.K.)

                Even though all of the 2014 LZ reissues sound outstanding, this one is by far the most improved. Great remastering!

                  Excellent Re-issue - well worth the money. Jimmy Page has proven himself as a mastering engineer. 180 gram vinyl. A great addition to an audiophile library.
