It took me almost 5 years -- has it really been that long? -- to get to where I am. He's beating my average.

Okay, time to bring to your attention another one in my collection that should leave you stunned and babbling after hearing it over your Axioms. The Stravinsky collection on this disc includes The Rite of Spring, Petrouchka and Fireworks, all in vigorous performances with excellent sound and at a bargain price. At the 1913 premier of The Rite in Paris, the gentle French music lovers in attendance rioted(maybe they were expecting Mozart?), so if you get this try to keep yourself under reasonable control.

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.

This is one of the ones I bought on John's recommendations. The sound is simply amazing on this CD. Totally immersive sound stage.

I can't say that "The Right of Spring" were my favorite passages musically but I didn't riot or throw vegetables at my Axioms or anything. There is lots of variety in the other sections to balance, in any case.

That being said, it is definitely the CD I pull out when a classical lover wants to hear how the Axioms perform. More impressive as a demo than even the old standby, "The Planets", so often mentioned here. I think, anyways.

A delayed thanks John.

O.k. I clicked on the link, and the price is $7.97!!!! This goes to prove that a high quality recording can be produced inexpensively. If the major labels priced "popular" music in this range, I bet it would greatly reduce the amount of piracy that they cry about all the time. BUT, the quality must go hand in hand as well.

Epic 80/600 + M3's + Custom Finish Algonquin V3's
