It's ''only'' 40% off on the  ! CARMEN GOMES, THOUSAND SHADES OF BLUE album but what an album it is! 

Quote

Her style is bluesy and intimate with a sexy voice that's sweet as dark tupelo honey, and her interpretations are unerring. The musicians play to her and to each other, and the ensemble is so tight that the four musicians breathe and move as one.

There are some standards on the set that knocked me over with their fresh approach. Any singer can misplace a few accents and rhythms and come up with something that's original, but perhaps also uneasy and a little strange. Not Gomes, who has taken the songs to their bones and then restructured them to suit her style. Thus "Fever" doesn't sound like a cover of Peggy Lee; it sounds like a brand new take on a familiar song. You emerge from hearing it not thinking it's better or lesser than Lee's version, but that it's a valid new interpretation that could have come first.

The same approach works on "Angel Eyes," "You Don't Know What Love Is," and "I'm on Fire." Most of the rest, including the title song, "Oblivion," "Time Will Tell," "Gasoa Blue," and "The Sea," are Gomes originals that fit right in with the standards. The recording achieves exactly what Bjørnild set out as his goal. It can provide the best seat in your listening room. Go to the Sound Liaison site, listen to a few samples, download an album, and see if you don't agree that this intimate effort is one of the best and best-sounding jazz vocal albums to come along in many a day.

Carmen Gomes: Carmen Gomes Sings the Blues

Another gem from Sound Liaison, this recording is Carmen Gomes' take on Harry Belafonte's Belafonte Sings the Blues.
Recorded in DXD, this recording is available in any high Rez flavor you prefer. The sound is killerhttps://www.audiostream.com/content/lovely-recordings-hosted-joe-whip-part-4

That sounds very much like resale price maintenance, which has been unlawful in Australia for over forty years.

 

Addicted to Audio own https://www.busisoft.com.au/brands so they actually ARE the distributor though technically they argue that because they are two separate companies they are separate entities and there is no conflict of interest. This is legally correct though in practise of course the shareholders are the same, as are management and directors to some degree.  One day Manufacturers will wise up and see that it is better for consumers that they sell direct to dealers and cut out the middle man. Dealers can easily provide warranty service or outsource that to service centres who don't compete on sales.. Win Win except for middle men or retailers masking as middle men and enjoying FAT margins whilst boutique family dealers are marginalised literally!.

 

Will I get banned for saying this since stereo net get ad money from distributors? Hmm we shall see however what's legal and what is moral and good for consumers are often two different things.....

Primare from Sweden already employ this business model of selling direct to the dealer without the need for a local distributor. Everything seems so much more efficient.

No. And just FYI we have relationships and commercial arrangements with Retailers, Distributors, and Manufacturers (including some that either sell direct to end users, or sell direct to dealers) :)

      Best music for speaker placement and best speaker placement tutorial???
       
      Having acquired a pair of Harbeth P3ESR speakers I'm having fun looking for the ultimate speaker placement. 
       
      I have downloaded
      The Visual Sound the Sound Liaison DXD Music Sampler 
      as it was recommended to me as being a great speaker placement tool.
       (Using the coupon code “XFI2019” you can download the 352DXD for $16 or the 24/ 96 files for $8.)
      Especially the phase coherent One Microphone recordings on the sampler seems excellent for that purpose: 
        Carmen Gomes inc. One Mic Recording Session       
       
        https://www.soundliaison.com/index.php/536-sound-liaison-dxd-music-sampler 
       
      On the net i.e.  youtube, there are a great number of tutorials in speaker placement. 
       Any of these you would especially recommend?
