I don’t know if there is already a topic on this, but I’m to lazy to look so I’ll start another. What digital gems have you found?

 

I’ll start:

 

Currently listening to Cat Steven’s Tea for the Tillerman in MQA (Tidal). Pretty darn impressive!!!

On Tidal Masters, BB King Live from Cook County Jail 1970.

I’ll give that a listen tonight. Check out  Air’s album Talkie Walkie, an amazing recording.

David Byrne, American Utopia.  We saw the concert down the Gold Coast last year and it was one of the best live musical experiences I can recall.  There were a few good ones from the 70s that I can't remember that well ;)

I'll check this out tonight. I'm getting a chance to listen to more music now.

It's interesting to view another style of music. Strawpeople are a band from NZ that I think you'd like, they are of the same style. They have a song "sweet disorder" that unfortunately is not on Tidal. Great bass rifs, I love that song, I need to bring over the CD I have. When people come over and want something of a demo of my main system I pull that out first.

 

I liked the song Alpha Beta Gaga best. The banjo was great. From 2:41 the song began for me. In saying that I think my 660's are too intimate, I like the space that live recordings give. I know I need a different set of headphones for this but given the issues with frequencies in my left ear I wonder about the value I would get. My left ear is... some what deaf to certain frequencies.

 

TBH Colin's setup has not helped. Or Ricks Stax setup. No help at all...

I remember Strawpeople. They had that track “Trick with a knife”. I would love to hear their later stuff. Bring it around next time you visit.

If you like headphones that give a sense of space, try my new HD800. Closest thing to speakers I’ve heard.

I have got to get round to your place mate. I have just read my girl's rooster and have a day.

 

BTW I'm listening to Joe Cocker, "Fire it up, LIVE".  I have got to say, 3 glasses of Drambui and this spectacular tube amp a good friend of mine lent me is really getting me moving. My cat is sitting on top of my PC looking purr'plexed, get it? PURR'plexed?  😉

“Audiophile Lounge” through the Pi and DIY DAC, 320kbps. Sounds so good and good mix of laidback easy listening music. My goto background listening streamer.

Check out this track, processed vocals but really cool.  Never heard of these guys before, another Tidal playlist winner!

Norah Jones singing 'Court and Spark' from the 'Joni 75: A Joni Mitchell Birthday Celebration' concert album.

...followed by Diana Krall singing 'Amelia'.  Both tracks delivered very distinctively.  Tidal FLAC streamed through the Auralic Aries (full pre-G1/G2 version) and Gieseler Klein III USB DAC.

 

Basically, I know that the above two artists and even Joni, get canned by many, but I don't give a stuff, they are sounding bloody awesome.  The emotion of their performances and the dynamism of the live performance are really conveyed on my system.

 

I have just pulled the NA322 MM boards from my old NAC32.5 and as suggested, I detected better channel separation than before and an even more airy, revealing character. In audio nirvana right now - real musical therapy!
