Hello all, new to the forum but enjoying the steep learning curve of Home Theatre.
I have a couple to add to the list:
1.Cantate-Domino. I am not able to post links yet but its easy enough to locate (It features the Oscar's Motet Choir conducted by Torsten Nilsson with soprano, Marianne Mellnäs and organist, Alf Linder)
Sounds incredible on whatever its played through.
2. Queen, A Kind Of Magic. This would be the vinyl version (someone asked for vinyl suggestions)
I bought this (in the mid 80's) on vinyl then swapped it for CD the following day because I had just bought my first CD player. What a disappointment to play the disc. I took it back and swapped it back for the vinyl.
The Guy that sold me my first "high end" audio set up took me to his apt above the store to let me (and my wife) listen to what an unlimited budget (and some knowledge) can get you. Listening to that system spoiled me for life I think. I could not get the idea out of my brain that I should be able to see the individual musicians performing in front of me. Going back to my purchase was a bit of a let down after that.
Its funny, when friends come over that doubt the bass capabilities of my PSBs, I usually put this album on or Cream "Wheels OF Fire" and let them pick their jaws back off of the ground after the album is over.
Minimalist Dedicated 2.2 Channel Fully Balanced, Fully Active Music Only System
Dual SVS SB-12pluses
Sonic Euphoria 10ga balanced XLR interconnects
Audioquest and Signalcable power chords
APC AV-H15BLK line conditioner
GIK and Acoustimac sound distribution panels
There is absolutely no question in my own mind that the sound of a component or cable changes during the first half dozen drinks that I consume.
