Last night listened to Elton John “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road (30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)” SACD brought over by Sean. I’m pretty neutral about Elton John don’t really like or dislike but I I’m ordering this sucker from Amazon today. It’s got to be one of the best multi-channel SACDs I’ve ever heard.

Also listened to The Flaming Lips “Yoshima Battles the Pink Robots.” Overall I prefer this type of music to Elton John and it was a very cool multi-channel presentation. Makes better use of the surround speakers than most other recordings I’ve heard.

I don’t really do much listening out of the sweet spot but last night I gained a better appreciation for the rear speakers running Dolby PLIIx on The Flaming Lips as it really rounded out the back half of the soundstage for the side seats. Something I hadn’t ever noticed before.


Dean and I did quite a bit of listening last night and I continue to be impressed with his entire set up. Listening to multi channel music, in particular, highlights how incredibly well the Axioms work together to form a cohesive whole. There isn't any timbre variances or changes in tone through out the entire system. Through fine engineering by Axiom and an excellent job of system set-up by Dean, listening to music and hearing movie soundtracks is quite a joyous experience.

And, yes, the Elton John CD sounded fantastic and great care was put into mixing it into a multichannel format. Also, Dean treated me to a listen to an import CD of Nena, who is most known for "99 Luftballoons," as well as various other tracks from his computer.

Oh! and we did a little revisiting of other 80s pop music, including The Bangles and Human League. Good stuff!

Another enjoyable evening, Dean. Thank you!

I just discovered Johnathan Rice while listening to my Last.fm station. (Last.fm is kind of like Pandora, but it gives you a lot more information about the artists you're listening to.) If you like Jenny Lewis / Rilo Kiley, you'll like this guy. He happens to be dating Jenny Lewis, who helped him with his album Further North. I just bought it and am listening to it now. Great stuff!

Sounds like a nice tune to listen to today Adrian, the wife left an hour a go to see her mom for a couple of days, the redneck race in Texas got rained out and it's raining here so I do believe it may be time to crank a few tunes myself.

Listening to the whole album, btw. M80s really bring out Bonham's 'punch'.

I've looked into buying the BR but I keep reading about a 'glitch' where it freezes or something, in the middle of one of the songs. Does it do that?

I instinctively gave you the devil horns when I read that. I hope no one was looking in my office. LOL!
