I primarily use iTunes as my default media player, although I do sometimes use Fidelia.   I have a couple questions that I know alot of Headfi'ers are sure to know.

I really enjoy the Richard Goode Beethoven Piano Sonatas. Really, really love them. Too bad the sound quality is sub-par.   Can someone recommend a better recorded Beethoven Piano Sonata set or select Sonata's from certain pianists.
