some of my favs (sound quality wise)

Dead Can Dance Amazing audio quality. Can you believe I got this box set on Ebay for $26?

Propellerheads One of the very best "electronica" cd's I've ever heard. Really great stuff. Very likely NOT what you'd expect from "electronic" music. Give it a try.

Norah Jones Is it safe to call this cd a modern classic?

Oscar Peterson I love Oscar Peterson, and of his stuff, I keep coming back to this disc.

Pink Martini Impossible to describe. Buy this cd. Track 9 makes me so happy to live in a world with music.

Van Halen Yeah...rock can sound great on a good system, and in my opinion this is one of the very greatest rock albums ever recorded. The remasters are terrific. Buy them all.

Bebel Gilberto As one amazon.com reviewer puts it...'Brazilliance!' 'nuff said.

Holst - The Planets If Holst can get better than this disc, please let me know. This is a must own in any cd collection.

Beethoven - Nine Symphonies A really great collection of all nine symphonies.

John Butler Trio Great material, great production quality

Godsmack My favorite piece of music currently with amazing sound quality

Velvet Revolver Great music, but horrible production quality, save this one for listening in the car

Following up on Craig's excellent Planets and Beethoven Symphony suggestions, for those who don't have a complete Tchaikovsky Symphony collection(shame on you!)let me suggest this bargain 7-disc set . Everything is good, but the Manfred is outstanding, the best I've ever heard.

OK John, I'll get it. I reckon I need a little "culture".

I just bought this CD. Sounds great, great recording. Blue Ocean, Foiled. http://www.amazon.com/Foiled-Blue-Octobe...TF8&s=music

I was wondering where you'd link us to for music since the death of tower.

BTW...what do you suggest as the very best recording/performance of Tchaikovsky's 'Marche Slave'? Prefer SACD or DVD-A, but a great sounding CD would be fine.

Okay Craig, first, re Tower, the B&M stores have just closed or are about to close, but the Tower website was sold separately in the bankruptcy and is continuing in operation at least for the present. The reasons I linked Arkiv for the Muti set are that Tower doesn't have it in stock and I wanted to show Hurwitz's rave review(which I completely agree with; it's a sensational bargain).

Marche Slave lasts only about 9 minutes, so it's part of about a zillion different collections. Nevertheless, I have an excellent collection which includes it and Tower lists it(see!). Be that as it may, the Amazon site has it in immediate stock for $1 less and is eligible for their 4 for 3 sale. If you're interested I can make you up a 4 disc package for about $20-$25. Incidentally, if you haven't gotten the Mehta Planets we discussed some time ago, that can be part of the package.

Great recordings.

On the average, Sarah McLachlan's stuff is well recorded - had a buddy over that was looking at a 2.1 system in the new year, and he picked one of her albums out of Lisa's collection to listen to.

Well, that and Phantom of the Opera... not sure which of the million recordings of it, probably the original Brazilian midget cast?!?

Shame on me, I do not own a Tchaikovsky symphony set. I put the one you recommended in my cart.

I'd love to see what 4 cd package you'd come up with for me. (and no, I've not gotten the Mehta Planets yet.) Though I do know I received this from santa this year.
