Let's see - James Taylor (Best Live), Sinatra Reprise, Classic Yo-Yo, Oh Brother sound track, Andrea Bocelli - Sogno, Eagles HFO.

I've been toying around with cranking up The Baja Men's Who Let the Dogs Out in honor of the Emo Big Dogs - Think I'll wait for the new amp modules first, then really give the system a good work out.

JohnK, looking for a really good recording (SACD perhaps) of Mendelsohn's 4th and Vivaldi's 4 Seasons. Also looking for big band stuff; Glenn miller, Tommy Dorsey and the like. Not necessarily old recordings that sound like a tin can on a string, but high quality renditions of that era of music. More modern artists like Brian Setzer and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy are also of interest.

After going thru some of my cd's, some things sound alot better than others, some are downright crap, and some recording are just amazing. Maybe it's the player (Oppo 981), maybe ithe the DAC's in the Emo, maybe its the mastering. I've been following This with much interest.

Tonight I'm listening to a great live acoustic recording, Neil Young "Live at Massey Hall 1971".
I'm not much of a Neil Young fan but I really like this cd.
I believe it is the 3rd cd of an 8 cd box set that will be gradually released.

Scott, my favorite Mendelssohn Italian(with very nice selections from A Midsummer Night's Dream)is the Levi on Telarc . No need for SACD(don't get the Munch RCA SACD); very fine sound with DPLII expanding the ambience into the surrounds.

For the 4 Seasons(and more Vivaldi)this Abbado is as good as any. Incidentally, speaking of seasons, I like Glazunov's better than Vivaldi's and here's a terrific 2-CD set with Cinderella.

If by some chance you don't have The Planets and want to order and get over the $20 for free shipping, it's an essential CD.

John, thanks for the input - I have all but the Glazunov on order. I got a wishy-washy response from my wife, who is a classical violinist and our tastes run very similar lines.

Thanks again,

Scott

Oh yeah! Got that one too, on my "Fender 50th Anniversary Guitar Legends" CD!

Sounds great through my Alessandro MS2i as well!

Aluminum cans, aluminum speakers. Got all the bases covered!

Porcupine Tree - Fear of a Blank Planet. I have recently gotten into them, this new release is good... I got the 2 disc pack, with CD and 5.1 (lossy). DVD-A should be out in September. This kind of music was made for an Axiom 5.1 system!
