Curious George was certainly recorded well but it's not my cup of tea. The rest of the family likes it though.
Now here's two more: The Quicksilva Collection: Volume 2 Vivaldi, Purcell, Handell, Bach and Canadian Brass: Sacred Brass. Absolutely amazing. It would be great if these were offered in DTS.
Now for these selections, I didn't listen at a half watt per channel. I find for classical I have to turn it right up to about 20W nominal so I had very little headroom. They sounded great with no clipping...at least none that I could hear. If I had a few hundred watts I'd definitely turn it up more although I'm not sure how that would sound in my room. They also sounded great in PLIIx with the fronts turned down about 5dB to give a greater sense of depth.
Wid, you would have been proud of me
