    Default Recommended CD's...

    I have spoken of these in the past, and I usually pick them up while I'm at Target. They are all 24 bit, DDD and (at least the 9 I have) are wonderfully recorded. I have so-called audiophile recordings that can't compete with these CD's for realism. Some of my favorites are:

    Smooth Jazz
    Imagine Santa Fe
    Piano/Violin Music
    Mexico
    Best of Latin (2-CD set)

    Check them out:

    Looking at the website, it appears some of the older releases are only available in MP3 (bummer) maybe the CD's can be found on-line elsewhere....

    Steve, I shop CDs exclusively at Amazon, but those find at Target look pretty good. My local target has long gave up on Jazz or similar selections. Now they are full of raps, latin, and other mainstream tastes.
    I am sorry, I have no opinion on the matter. I am sure you do. So, don't mind me, I just want to talk audio and pie.

    I went in a few weeks ago and they didn't even have Pink Floyd. It dumbfounded me.

    The Lifescapes CD's are over by the greeting cards usually, In a display by themselves. Target's regular CD selection is usually pretty bad.

    I regularly use "Smooth Jazz" as a reference CD.
