Thanks SO much for The Ragpicker's Dream suggestion.

I'm no audiophile but I know a good recording and that is one GREAT recording and a GREAT selection of tunes. I sit at my computer in the corner of my living/listening room and when each new song came on I would look up at my speakers (Revel M22's) a bit startled - like Mark was in the room - weird and I'm not making that up.

Very similar experience with this album

The down side is I'm spoiled now and worried about playing anything inferior.

Another recording I like is Jack Johnson's Curious George. Some of his guitar work will also make you think his guitar is being played on your couch.

Yeah that's it. I just read a review that called it 'kid stuff' but my wife and I leave it on all day long and I think the recording is great.

LOL! Ok. I've requested it through the library.

Another thread today in which I mentioned some of my music listening reminded me that I should discuss my most recent acquisition. Another church member had asked me about a recommendation for a CD with music for liturgies or services in Church Slavonic. I first checked Dr. Morosan's very informative site at musicarussica.com and got a lead to Roman Hurko. Mr. Hurko is a Canadian composer who has composed several items for church services and in particular a beautiful Vespers service about two years ago. I ordered two copies which arrived yesterday and can certainly suggest that anyone who appreciates beautiful choral singing should consider this.

Curious George was certainly recorded well but it's not my cup of tea. The rest of the family likes it though.

Now here's two more: The Quicksilva Collection: Volume 2 Vivaldi, Purcell, Handell, Bach and Canadian Brass: Sacred Brass. Absolutely amazing. It would be great if these were offered in DTS.

Now for these selections, I didn't listen at a half watt per channel. I find for classical I have to turn it right up to about 20W nominal so I had very little headroom. They sounded great with no clipping...at least none that I could hear. If I had a few hundred watts I'd definitely turn it up more although I'm not sure how that would sound in my room. They also sounded great in PLIIx with the fronts turned down about 5dB to give a greater sense of depth.

Wid, you would have been proud of me .

I don't normally read this thread but happen to take a glance this time.

I am impressed

I'll have to throw in Buddy Guy's Blues Singer CD into the mix of this thread..."Lucy Mae Blues" is exceptional.

Vespers Service is amazing for those that really love this kind of stuff. It reminded me of when I was growing up in the old country. I'd attend these services and I had no idea what the heck they were chanting about. Last year I took a trip back there and I still had no idea what they were chanting about. So I asked a few of my relatives and they had no clue either but they are convinced that if they listen to the chanting, they'll go to heaven.
