    The Postal Service's album Give Up sounds great on my 2B's I have it on vinyl and it sounds amazing. The CD i haven't tried yet but i am sure it sounds good as well.

    Default This is incredible on SRS 1.2 TLs

    Emerson Lake & Palmer: "The Best of"

    This is an incredible sounding CD on SDAs. The soundstage is absoutely huge and the 1.2 TLs simply disappear. Listening to this brought me back to the first ELP concert I attended 38 years ago in Philadelphia. The opening band was a little know group called, "Yes." I was about 13 years old then and needless to say that concert left a lasting impression on me.

    Even if you don't like ELP or never even heard of them, this CD is worth every nickel and will blow you away.

    Bob Marley and the Wailers - Positive Vibration - Rat Race, 38 seconds into the song, extreme SDA channel separation. Single vocal from one person in the extreme right, sounds very cool.

    I just played Blow by Blow by Jeff Beck and was blown away by the SDA effects. VERY wide soundstage and great production by George Martin.
    Try it out. Does anyone have the SACD of Blow by BLow and if so, how does it compare to the regular cd?

    Are you talking about the song 'Little Lies' by FM. I have a lot of Fleetwood mac cd's and I can't find a song called 'Tell me lies' on any of them. What best of cd are you referring to?

    I put on James Taylor Live expecting a treat. All the music was between the speakers and the aplause were to the left of the left speaker and to the right of the right speaker. Like there were two groups of people on each side of the speakers. GOOD MUSIC, BAD SDA.

    You sure about the mix being a good one? I have some great recordings but the engineering and mix were awful and the music was as you described. Usually my SDAs just blow me away with the sound staging.

    No. I don't blame the speakers. Bad mix. I'm taking notes of some of the suggestions here. I thought I'd just point out a disapointing one.

    I grew up in the 60's and 70's and I love all rock and roll and blues. I was just relaxing and listening to the best of Roy Orbison and I gotta tell ya his vocal range is not diminished one bit by the big Polks. So my vote for this day and this hour is Roy Orbison.

    I hate this thread....I keep going out looking for and spending more money on music! :D

    Really, though...things like this open me up to more music than I used to listen to 20 years ago when my "blinders" were on. Now, it's a lot more eclectic than it used to be.

    I'm of the opinion that hardware will never be an issue as far a shortages go, however, software, that is good music, recorded well on a good medium won't always be available. That is why I have a monthly budget slated just for the acquisition of music.

    Paul Mauriat - Gold Collection - Sabre Dance, about 0:58 seconds into it the base drums start to really kick in and if you have the quick bass response and the 15" woofers, you will really enjoy yourself. Just make sure the wife is not home and crank it up a little.

    of all things, I found a used copy (although it looked and sounds unplayed) at reckless records in Chicago. It's the 180g import version. I am looking forward to the upcoming doors heavy vinyl boxset, definitely on my list!
