Most of my suggestions involve works for full orchestra, but there's been some beautiful music composed for smaller forces(generally referred to as "chamber music"). Debussy and Ravel each composed only one string quartet, but they got it right the first time, and their quartets are regarded as among the most beautiful ever written. They're featured along with Debussy's haunting Syrinx for solo flute and Ravel's Introduction and Allegro which adds a clarinet and harp to the ensemble for added gorgeousness, on this scandalously low-priced disc , recorded fairly close-up, but with nice ambience added by the church recording venues(and best heard with the ambience extracted to the surrounds where it belongs with DPLII, etc.).

It still kills me how most classical stuff can be picked up for dirt cheap. A bargain for me, though!!

DAMN! I love Dire Straits and was fully aware of the quality of Brothers in Arms. But bouncing around this thread for some new ideas I realized I had not run this album in my new room. SH#$%#$#$#T. The re-mastered version is so clean it is one of very few albums I can run at -00 db on the dial and not pick out a flaw. And the bass is insanely accurate. "Ride Across the River" should be a sample track sent by any company that really thinks their gear packs the goods. The other tracks are just as good, but that track covers every inch of audio ground from soft and subtle to bottom of the sub terrainian depths at full throttle. Mark Knopfler must have one incredible set up at home. He sure pays attention to sonic details in his recordings (even at 102 db at my ears). Thanks Mark.

Ok, I just hit 107 db on Pink Floyd "Another Brick in the Wall". Heard a "burp" or two so i had to bring it down, but all in all the re-mastered P Floyd is pretty tight. A bit of noise but, at 100+ you won't notice. And it is a subwoofer test worth adding to your weekend if you have not felt you chair move on anything but a LFE movie score lately.

Enjoy.

Sub is Bowers & Wilkins (B&W) ASW 600. Small and tight 10". Rocks hard in my small theater, but met its match with Floyd. The Dire Straits tracks worked it hard, but I have it crossed over at 40 hz so all of its work goes to accurate thumping and it stayed in control, while dripping in sweat! I honestly thought I might be thrust into the market for a new sub after yesterday.

And don't listen to Fred, he is just jealous because his cable just lays flaccid on the ground, and he keeps his crystals in an old crusty box. You got your crystals, right Bob? They are the key to accurate sound. I'm sure you covered that before splurging on better speakers.

Just think how great the acoustics are in Superman's Fortress of Solitude.
