I already have everything ripped to Windows Media Lossless, and I can use my Xbox 360 to access my music collection, but right now I still need CDs when listening to music in the bathroom while getting ready for work. And I like taking CDs to work on occasion, too. And, yeah, I actually do like perusing my collection's artwork. Also, with all of the albums with bonus DVDs, or the DualDiscs, or the SACDs and DVD-As, ripping isn't always an option.

Charles, how is the production quality of that Prima/Smith album? I was looking at that myself.

I'll let you know after I have time to listen to the whole thing at a go, rather than just stray bits. So far it's striking me as having compressed dynamics, but I want to give it a better listen over the weekend, if I have time. My sister will be visiting, so we'll see.

Kimya Dawson - Hidden Vagenda

I really liked it. I have a couple more albums of hers to listen to as well.

Oooh, just looked at the booklet for Hidden Vagenda and she has a picture with Regina Spektor in it. How sweet is that?

I listened to the Louis Prima and Keely Smith album a little more, and I liked the sound quality more this time, so I don't know what my deal is/was. I still haven't listened to the whole album straight through, but I've liked all of the songs I've listened to.

As for the Neko Case live DVD, it sounds pretty good, too. The presentation is 4:3, but if you just care about the audio, it doesn't seem like you can go wrong.

Bill Evans Trio - Portrait in Jazz CD that just arrived today. Accompanied by a glass of red wine. Perfect ending to a long day!

I just saw Jake Shimabukuro perform on Late Night With Conan O'Brien, and I have to admit his ukulele playing is pretty amazing. I'll have to pick up the album he was promoting.

I have only one Mark Knopfler cd but I do have the Dire Straits / Knopfler greatest hits cds. Based on the recommendations here, I put them on tonight. Very impressive sounds from my M22s!

Now on to the Knopfler cd - "One Take Radio Sessions"
