Songs that make your headphone WOOOOOW!!! - Page 2

The PS3000s love everything. Any well recorded piece of music shines on the PS3000s. Brian Wilson - Smile, Flaming Lips - Yoshimi, Gov't Mule live recordings, anything on the Chesky label, Ozzy's new box set, MFSL's Tchaikovsky Anniversary set, you name it.

pretty much any cd or LP from the David Manley (from Vaccum Tube Logic) collection. they're mainly jazz recordings with my favorite being CD3, James Leary Bass Quintet. amazing recordings as they were recorded with a single stereo microphone that has tube amplification and recorded directly to analogue tape then transfered to CD or LP. the clarity and imaging of these recordings will really shine with your best headphones and show you what is missing in many modern day recordings that use multiple mics and mixed so that everything is in one blob in your head.

I learned the tribute version of all the songs on that album, although I can't play them as well as Randy did.

Unfortunately, the production quality isn't that good. They added too much reverb, the crowd noises aren't very detailed and there's very little sense of separation. Everything sounds mushed together.

I found Danial Indart's Latin music to be REALLY impressive, as far as production quality goes.
The tropico 2 album is my favorite. It's really light listening material, but it makes such an impression when I listen to it with my UE10's.

Also, Rush's Remastered Moving Pictures sounds amazing, and I'm not a huge rush fan.
