What are your "best" and "worst" albums on your Axioms? I've only had my M3Tis a couple days, but these are my suggestions :

Best : Moody Blues - Legend of a Band
Worst : Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon

These little M3s sound great, but, DSOTM just eats 'em up. The sax and some of the keyboard work just is too much for them. The vocals seem a bit washed out too.

Moody Blues almost sound like the speakers were designed around them. Not one song on the album has a hiccup on them.

Do you have the SACD version of DSotM? It's a must-have! It's a hybrid disc, so even if you don't have an SACD player, you'll still get the benefit of better mastering.

Best - Bootsauce "Bull" - even recorded AAD in 91-92, it's an incredible piece of acrylic. I use the track "Whatcha Need" for subjective equipment testing (along with NIN - "Dead Souls" and CCIR Grade 5/ITU-R 500 samples).

Worst - Levellers "Levelling the Land", they mixed this album too "live" and while the delay adds some presence to bad speakers, it's just annoying on good ones. Like listening in the bathroom.

KT, I have about a thousand classical CDs and can't possibly pick one as best. None deserves a "worst". So, I'll just name the terrific Holst Planets that I often recommend to beginning classical listeners as a nearly surefire CD.

Have you all listened to much Beatles on your Axioms? To my ears, their albums sound incredible. Wonder how something recorded 30-40 years ago can sound so good.

Don't tell me BrenR listens to vinyl on a spinning platter! Next thing you know, he'll try a tube amp and take his music to the next and better level.

Steely Dan
Diana Krall
Getz/Jobim
Loreena McKennett 'Elemental'
Ed Gerhard's 'Live Album'
Norah Jones
Eric Clapton (last 3 albums)
George Winston (almost all of them)
Jane Monheit
Simon & Garfunkle (all of it)
Moody Blues (all of it)
Suzanne Vega

M3s get a bit congested when pressed with symphonic music.
