NOW you tell me JohnK. I'm pretty happy with the 5700. It'll be used mostly for stereo listening, but I have bookmarked that site for future reference. Thanks for the "stunning" recommendation.

Alex, is this in retaliation for me suggesting using that 1000 page AVS Audyssey thread for info? Just kidding, but preparing all those links again would be a pretty monumental task. To get my full list with links in the "Stunning" thread, just search "Stunning" in subject for my name for the relevant years period. Some of the older links of course(e.g., for Tower Records)are no longer good. If you search subject "classical" for my name you also get those posts with links.

If you'd like me to prepare a starter collection of a dozen or so discs for you I'd be happy to do that.

I know I would sure appreciate a list like that, JohnK.

Buddy, here's a beginning collection of colorful music, some loud and dramatic, some quieter and beautiful, in excellent performances and fine sound. Generally this is available at ridiculously low prices for music of this quality. Third-party sellers of new and used on Amazon usually are the best buys, although items qualifying for the Amazon free shipping on a $25 order(e.g., the used Ravel disc below)can sometimes result in a lower net cost.

The Planets ; Ravel, Daphnis et Chloe ; Khachaturian Symphony No. 2 ; Rachmaninoff symphonies ; Brahms Hungarian Dances ; Prokofiev, Cinderella ; Ilya Murometz ; Dvorak Cello Concerto ; Smetana, Ma Vlast ; Latin American collection ; Respighi, Roman Poems ; Stravinsky collection . Enjoy.

Just got home from a work trip and have to leave again tomorrow for the day. Reading this thread made me realize I need to go down to the HT and listen to my Axioms for a while before going to bed. Thanks!

Thanks for the quick picks, JohnK. Just purchased the Ravel, Smetana, and Respighi selections.

I've particularly enjoyed Brahms Hungarian Dances. I like that one.

Chris, The Moldau is one of the six sections of Ma Vlast(My Country).

Well, if you like to drive on public roads or expect police and fire protection or perhaps pay into/accept Medicare and Social Security you already are a socialist. smile

Of course, you can always move to that bastion of libertarian-ism, Somalia. That's an unregulated "free" economy without any government interference... wink

Buying Axiom speakers from our pinko comrades of the north will only help fund the socialist threat and lead to a single payer healthcare system and other progressive policies here. It's a slippery slope that will sap you of your precious bodily fluids my friend...

You don't want us to end up like one of those Scandinavian hellholes where quality of life is better, do you? grin
