Informace mám přímo od Japonce,který se tím zabývá.Doufám,že víš o SHM CD boxu ,který Japonci vydali začátkem září.Má sice menší tlouušťku papírových obalů ,ale zvukově jsou krapet lepší než ty CD ze začátku 21. století.Četl jsem totiž nějaké reakce Američanů,kteří tohle japonské provedení srovnávali s tím americkým přímo od Warnerů.

These replicas are fantastic. The attention to detail is superb. I've only listened to LZ3 but in my opinion the sound quality is much better than the 93 "remasters". Even if you are only a casual Zep fan, grab the box while you can.

Zep fans out there, don't miss out on this set! The separation between instruments is superb, (as are the vocals) especially the acoustic guitar.Finally we hear Zep the way it was meant to be. Two thumbs up!!

WELL I BOUGHT THIS BECOUSE OF THE PACKAGING, I ALREADY HAD THE ZEPPELIN CARDBOARD SLEEVES FROM 02 OR 03. I DID NOT THINK I WOULD BE GETTING THE ZEPPELIN CATLOG AGAIN BUT WHAT SOLD ME ON THIS WAS THE ORIGINAL REPLICA UK SLEEVES AS WELL AS THE REPLICAS OF THE ORIGINAL OBI STRIPS AND ORIGINAL JAPANESE PRESSINGS. AS FOR THIS NEW MASTERING I DONT HEAR TO MUCH OF A DIFFERANCE IN SOUND, ITS A BIT BETTER BUT SINCE 2001 I THINK THEY FINALLY GOT THE MASTERING RIGHT, I HAVE SOME OTHER PAPERSLEEVES WITH THE SAME NEW MASTERING AND WITH THEM AS WELL THEY SOUND A LITTLE BETTER BUT NOT MUCH. THIS IS A FANTASTIC BOX SET FOR ANY ZEPPELIN COLLECTOR!!!!!!!!!!!! IT REALLY CANT GET BETTER THEN THIS! MAYBE THE SOUND ON THE 180 G VIYNL LP VERSION OF THE SONG REMAINS THE SAME SOUNDS MORE SUPERB BUT THAT IS A 4 LP BOX SET. THIS IS A WONDERFUL JAPANESE MASTERPEICE. I LOVE THE WHO ONES AND DEEP PURPLE ONES THAT RECENTLY CAME OUT AS WELL ALSO FINALLY WE GOT THE WHOLE GARDEN 73 SHOW!!!!!!!!

Led Zep, Led Zep Fab..I know everyone is raving about this Box set..but why Not...Mr Robert sounds just great..the Zep warble peaks like never before..Ok so its 94 remaster or Gods remaster..who cares ..with a decent Hi Fi..oops thats so 70s...the Zep boys sound just great..maybe its the Emperors New Clothes or Snake Oil but God Bless you Universal Japan for doing us proud..I don't care if the cardboard sleeves are minus the 2003 versions..its a good job..Maybe they have fooled the Children Of the Revolution but with a package this good the focus groups have done their stuff...Lets hope we get the Bowie SHm if hes not too greedy..remember he was a Starman many moons ago !! Beatles ..oops greedy Apple and of course the Marc Bolan/T'rex remastered back Catalouge..sorry but Mr Visconti is still bitter from being devalued circa 72..Zep Rocks like they always did..Buy it ..try it and stop being so anal..PLant,Page Jones and Bonham(RIP) ROCK..Marc 31 years stolen and I still miss Ya !!XXXXXXXXXX
*A Damn Fine Collection 2008/09/17
Reviewer: Freddo (CANADA) 5
Fantastic. I already own most of the North American cardboard sleeves from a few years back, so I wasn't going to buy this new collection. After reading the glowing reviews of it, however, I decided to take a chance on it and ordered it. I am glad I did.
Immediately upon putting Houses of the Holy in my cd player, I was struck by the depth of the sound coming from my speakers. This was without comparing it to the previous versions of this album, so I knew there was something special about this version.
With other SHM-cds, I have been less impressed, but I fully recommend this set. I just finished listening to CODA-I love that there are extra tracks on this album-and that is another bonus and reason to get this set.
Thanks for going beyond my expectations with this release. If only North American record companies could produce packages with such high quality, there might not be such a slump in CD sales over here. I think I will be buying a second copy of this set, for a Christmas present.
Thank you, Warner Music Japan.

As I have encountered on other SHM releases, the better your system is, the more difference you will hear. Just got my box and it is a beauty! Superb production. hat some do not seem to know is that these are based off the UK sleeves, not the USA sleeves. the UK sleeves were thinner than USA sleeves were when the albums were first produced. However, the bonding to the paper was much better than the USA, as well, so these are attempting to reproduce the UK sleeve style and thickness, hence the thinner sleeves. Note that the earlier 2003/05 min LP sleeve releases were based on the USA style jackets.
SHM in general does allow more to come through. The overall sonic quality is just as it is with any other disc - it is only as good as the hands involved in its production. If the mastering engineer or transfer engineer does a lousy job, no SHM can over come that. My experience with many SHM discs is by and large, the production has been superbly handled.
The USA Box soon to be released in late October, 2008, will NOT be mini sleeve and will NOT be SHM. Get this box before its too late! My highest 5 star recommendation.

I own most of the 2003 Japanese Paper Sleeve Editions of these CDs. These sounded better than the 1994 re-masters. The 2003 Editions have a little more volume than the 1994 remasters and they had more separation of the instruments.
Warner , has used those 2003 Japanese Paper Sleeve Editions as the base for these , Shm-Cds.
So , do they sound the same?
These Led Zeppelin Shm-Cds are even better sounding.
Because , they are the 2003 Editions but now they are on , SHM-CDISCs.
This means that all of the song's volume on each album are now at the same volume and Robert Plant's voice is more upfront in the mix. There is even more separation between all of the instruments.
The only way to know this is if you have actually heard these Shm-Cds. Some people haven't heard these yet but think that they sound the same as the 2003 Editions or the 1994 Editions , but these new editions sound much , much , better.
As for the paper sleeves , I lOVE the English style CD colours and the plastic coating on the sleeves.
This is really good for the many extra , In Through The Out Door , sleeves.
Having 4 bonus tracks on the , Coda Shm-Cd , doesn't hurt either. Well worth every penny. Nice job!
Tak snad ti to bude stačit :-))
