I have rediscovered my Steely Dan Collection I have worn out Aja over the years but,gosh, I love Can't buy a Thrill and The Royal Scam now more then I ever did in the past(I think it's my age). Tom Tom Club also a much more enjoyable listen than I remember. Herb Alpert's Midnight Sun is also stunning in parts. What are you listening to for 2 Channel media.

The Girl In the Other Room is an excellent SACD. Her vocals are amazing and the music is pretty cool.

Ok. I will try It I like jazz and as Jm stated almost anything that is well recorded am listening to Keiko Matsui at the moment Sapphire is playing. I am always on the lookout for great recordings. Thanks for your recommendations.

The recording process is really the key when it comes to CD audio quality...

To further this thread along, what labels do you find produce the best quality??
I'll start-

ECM, Chesky, Blue Note, GRP, Windham Hill, Verve, certain Warner Bros......

My personal favorites of Diana Krall, in order of best sounding and most amazing source material are as follows,

-Love Scenes
-The Look of Love
-The Girl In the Other Room
-Live in Paris
-Live in Rio

All other records are great too, but these recordings best capture the purity of Krall's beautiful vocals and piano work, especially Love Scenes!

2-channel music I've been enjoying most has been on vinyl with my 975 and includes:
YES
Rush - Moving Pictures
Rush - Grace Under Pressure
Miles Davis - Kind of Blue
Boston - Third Stage
Journey (ANYTHING)
Dire Straits - Brothers in Arms
Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon

For some reason vinyl sounds best to my ears when 70's era rock is being played! smile
