Yes, I better be more careful with my typing. Thoughts of my wife were distracting me .

Two others that I neglected to mention are Oscar Peterson: We get Requests and Eric Clapton: Unplugged.

By the way, the Oscar Peterson CD has a really wide soundstage in 2-channel and when I switch to Neo6: Music, the soundstage gets extended about 2 feet to either side. In PLII: Music, the sound wraps around you. I like the Neo effect better for this particular title.

Another interesting jazz recording (which I was able to borrow from the local public library in Mississauga, ON) is Walk On - Ray Brown Trio

Disc 2 has several tracks which were recorded before a live audience where Ray Brown, Christian McBride and John Clayton all play acoustic bass - with no other instruments. The timbral differences between the three bassists' instruments, as well as the soundtage where you can pinpoint each performer's location on stage make it a really interesting disc to listen to.

Incidentally, John Clayton is the bass player in the superb rhythm section on Diana Krall's "Live in Paris" CD/DVD.

Thanks for that. The libraries here don't have it although they appear to have every other Ray Brown title. Why are you guys in Ontario so special? Oh right, I forgot. You receive more transfer payments than the west .

Mojo,

Which release of 'Oscar Peterson : We Get Requests' do you have? I looked it up on Amazon and there are several.

Thanks,

Thanks, Mojo.

I bought Ragpicker's Dream today, and while I couldn't really listen to it with two kids around, the vocals were so crisp and centered and upfront. I'm looking forward to listening to it louder and with no kids.

Regards,

Hi Rodney,

Let us know what you think after you've had a good listen. Toe your speakers in if they're not already for better imaging.

Someone mentioned on these posts that Dead Can Dance: Into the Labyrinth had incredible SQ. Now I can certainly attest to that.

For those of you that might be interested in this, there is a lot of middle eastern influence...very melodic. I bet that if I blind-folded someone and brought them into my 4,000 cubic room and made them listen to track 3 in Neo 6: music, they would swear that they were in a cathedral.

Track 4 has some very, very smooth bass somewhere north of 24Hz and south of 40Hz. I know it's more than 24 because my fireplace doesn't rattle. And I know that it's less than 40 because even at a "loud" volume, you can barely hear a very slight pounding from the 80s. But the 600 does an absolutely amazing job. No pounding at all but rather a smooth and rhythmic ebb and flow even when I set the sub volume at the lowest possible level on my Denon. I connected my old Sony sub just for fun to see what it would sound like on this track and I got some good pounding. The difference is absolutely incredible! Pounding bad...smooth and rhythmic good .

There's also very good separation of all instruments in this work.

Steely Dan: Two against nature. And I know I've mentioned Patricia Barber before but definitely make sure you get her "Companion" CD.
