In my experience,

the LA-2A is probably better as a functional compressor to actually compress stuff.

The STA-Level does something very nice to certain sources, more or less regardless of how much compression you are using.

To me, this equates more to a mojo/vibe thing. That said this is also using a newer LA2A and a Retro Sta Level, I don't have a lot of experience with the originals, which could be a totally different ballpark (esp. the LA2A I would imagine, I've heard that the Retro is pretty much identical to the Gates in build quality)
