last night listened to The Police "Regatta de Blanc" and "Santana". Wow, both really well recorded...my new M3's were a-jumpin'. The Santana recording in particular was amazing - just stuff all over the place and obviously recorded to tickle the listener.
I'm really loving NOT having to wear headphones to get good sound. In fact I feel like the sense of space is better listening with these speakers than with headphones. I can't get over it!
Can't remember the last time I was as satisfied with something I bought.

Am pulling out old CD's to listen to on the Axioms - hopefull to re-connect and rediscover them. CD's that I liked, but never got into the sound excellence aspect of them. One I was a bit disapointed in was "Marvin Gaye's Greatest Hits". Of course the music is great, but nothing very dynamic about the production. At least not on this CD I have.

The revealing nature of the M3's is remarkable. Listened to some Indigo Girls today (live)...beautiful. Carlos Santana plays with emotion, heart and passion; ever think a pair of speakers like the M3's would finally tell us that?

Glad you like her Fred. Hiromi’s Sonicbloom “Beyond Standard,” the one with “Led Boots,” was in the first batch of SACDs I picked up after getting my Axioms. I was looking for some multi-channel SACDs and most of the stuff at the store looked pretty boring so I thought I’d give her a try. Popped it in and was totally blown away. I posted about her a few years ago but I don‘t think you were a forum member then, and I don‘t think I posted any links. I love being able to link to Youtube so people can get a taste of what something is like even if the audio quality isn’t always great.

I hadn’t seen that video thanks for posting it. She really gets into her performances from what I’ve read. AFAIK she composes most of her stuff. Between Hiromi Uehara and Yoko Kanno I’ve gained a real appreciation for music coming out of Japan beyond just the Jpop and Jrock.

A totally different style but in my opinion very cool is the Okinawan group Ryuku Underground.

I spent almost 2 hours listening to her stuff. I really got drawn in: so much so I have put a couple of her discs (Beyond Standard, and the Time themed one) on my wishlist for my next round of Amazon shopping.

I'll check out that other link tonight after my kids are gone. Gonna show my daughter the Lead Boots video now.

If you like what you’re hearing from Youtube wait until you hear in in CD quality.

I don’t remember if you use SACDs but “Beyond Standard” is one of the best 5 mastered SACDs I have. Not only is the sound quality amazing but it uses the surround channels well and not just for ambient stuff. Like at the beginning of “Led Boots” when she plays the synthesizer it circles around your head. I only wish they’d made it a DVD so you could also watch the performance.

I loved the one comment in your Youtube post. “What a lucky Piano you are!!!”

I don’t know how I missed this…I guess I was a little to busy trying to find a house.

Hiromi's Sonicbloom Live

I just ordered it from Amazon should be here Wednesday.
