    Music? Recording quality?
    My audio bits: Thorens / diy phono, CD/dvd player(s), diy pre, F6, Tannoy Golds in my boxes / my xovers, and of course all strung together with basic diy Wires
    Lots of Cd's, yet more audio files, a couple of hundred semi worn Lps.

    Discovered this thread earlier in the week and enjoyed several hours going through all 58 pages! Many recommendations are familiar, a few will be in my 'Basket' shortly..........
    My first three 'good/great sounding CDs' that are also musically special (to me anyway).........

    - Stina Nordenstam - 'And She Closed Her Eyes'. 1994 release from reclusive Swedish female artist. Fascinating album and wonderfully recorded.
    - Craig Armstrong - 'As if to Nothing'. Scottish 'Composer' who released this 2002 Album as a follow up to the equally good 'The Space Between Us'. An eclectic mixture of Electronica and Orchestration (with occasional Vocals). Amazing dynamics to the recording - sounds fantastic!
    - Prefab Sprout - 'Steve McQueen'. Great recording by Thomas Dolby - the 2007 Double CD 'Legacy Edition' is really impressive.

    Basis Debut Gold Standard T/Table, SME V Tonearm, Koetsu 80th. Anniversary, Krell Reference KRS Monoblock Pre and Power Amps, Krell FPB700 Power Amp, Wilson Audio X1 Grandslamms Series 5, Wilson Audio XS Subwoofers, Theta Data Basic & Pro Gen V DAC

    I have also just discovered this thread but have not looked through all 58 pages yet so if someone else has suggested this then I'll just add it as a +1.

    I put on Roger Waters' Pro's and Con's of Hitchhiking this last weekend whilst listening to fairly new Speakers and new Interconnects.
    My copy is from 1984 and am not sure if it's been re-released/re-mastered and (possibly) ruined but this version I would put up there as 10/10. The recording is superb and the playing (Clapton on guitar) is wonderfull.

    I think this was his first solo release so some of the guitar riffs you think ''...that's familiar...'' but a great album to get lost in with the lights out on a Sunday evening !

    I put forward the recent Chris Hilman album Bidin' My Time

    Since I got my copy last week I would say its a cracker and I've just been using it to test out my new (to me) Chord Chameleon Silver+ interconnects.

    Some of it still brings a tear to my eye, but that may be just hormones
