R.E.M., Automatic for the People. (CD) Seems to have been recorded well; sounds clear and the piano/strings came to life. The Axioms play everything so effortlessly.

I'm seriously thinking about upgrading my whole R.E.M. catalog to DVD-A (the Warner Brothers years, that is). Have heard good reviews of those on this site and elsewhere. Wish I could find them cheaper than list price ($24.99 US)

I found mine in the New & Used section of Amazon.com or on Ebay. My average price was about $13 a disc. You can also buy them at deepdiscountdvd.com for around $18 a disc. Either way, if you are an REM fan - you need these discs. I never get of listening to any of them, especially "Automatic". Even better, IRS has announced 5.1 versions of their older catalogue - incluing Reckoning and Life's Rich Pagent" for late 2006.

Last night it was some SRV and Styx, both through a pair of Grado SR 325i's I just received

Do tell. I've recently started using my headphones again (Senns) and have always been curious about the Grado sound. If I were to buy some it'd probably be the 325is. A big thing for me is comfort. How do the Grados hold up after a couple hours?

I find the SR 325i's even more comfortable than the SR 60's. To me the bowls sit better on my ears than the pads do. Neither are uncomfortable imo, I can use both for hours with no problems.

Thom Yorke - "The Eraser"

soon to pop in "Housexy" - A comp from Ministry of Sound.

Who you say? What? Er, turn off that noise. There aren't even any guitars in there...

Thanks, Rick. One of these days I will get around to trying some Grados. Just found my old pair of Senn HD 570s--my first good pair of headphones. If my headphone listening increases I can probably justify buying another pair of cans.
