Youtube is such an amazing resources for audio these days. I've come across so many concerts from the 80s that I would have loved to go to but parents wouldn't let me lol. So being able to see/hear them now is so awesome. I just can't get over how good the USB input on my Meier Daccord is...I never would have listened to this many youtube clips if not for Jaywillin and Jan Meier!

I'd say Jay is definitely over the flu bug or whatever that was and Kid Rock definitely one up my James Brown as the hardest working man in soul. At the same concert no less. But you would have to admit that white boy for James can really pick a guitar and so did the other one play the sax.

Listening to the new Led Zeppelin  2014 remaster....sounds awesome! Made for Grados.

There are getting to be too many Led Zeppelin remaster's out there to keep track of and they all claim to be "THE" official remaster. Kind of funny really. Do you find you prefer your LD or Asgard 2 with your Grado's markm?

I think this remaster is the real deal. It's way better than the 90 remasters IMO-just once thru after a couple of beers.....so....but given the reviews I've read, I think Jimmy did it right this time.

 

For the most part LD1+ w/ RS1i. If I want the metal/hard rock crunch-225 w/ Asgard- w/ a sacrifice in subtleties. But more in your face. The differences are not huge...but then it hits you. Refinement and smoother.

 

I think the LD tames the treble a bit. There feels like a veil-ever so slight-a warmer/darker sound w/ the LD1. The Asgard-while neutral overall-may double down as it were on the brightness quotient. Clarity  (A-2) vs smooth tube qualities. But, both are clearly quality amps. I think I agree that the overall synergy across genres is better w/ LD, but by a fairly small margin.

 

One of the biggest selling points for the Asgard is it's versatility w/ a variety of cans. The LD1+feels more like a niche.

Are you listening to the CDs or HD downloads (basically, what's your source)?

Do the actual songs sound better than the HDTracks samples?  To me, those samples don't sound any better than the Complete Studio Recordings.

I just got the Valhalla 2 and oddly it doesn't have much of a tube sound to it, more like a solid state amp with just a slight touch of tubeness but not nearly as much as some other tube amps I have heard.

I had to go check to see which ones I have and it appears I have the 90's remaster, but also by Jimmy Page. I really like these also, better than the original songs in most cases IMO.

I just got a Valhalla 2, not fully burned in yet I don't think but it sounds pretty good. Anything in particular I could help you with. Certainly a LOT better than the Little Dot I replaced.
