Where did you get a hold of the flac version when there seems to be no CD version online available for purchase? I only see mp3s.

You are are right. I made a mistake--this is one of the few non flac albums I own and I forgot. I just e-mailed one of the band members to ask if he could hook me up haha.

Cool! Let me know how that goes, I really like the song and the band fascinates me.

That Sub Bass of the D2000s <3.

 

 

 

 

 

One of the best Dubstep tracks on my D2000s.

Like everything sounds nice on them.

Just recently rediscovered Jean Michel Jarre, in particular, Zoolook. Especially amazing in articulate cans.

rligeti, you absolutely correct! Jean Michel Jarre is the original master of the Ethereal Synth! I have been listening to him since the mid 70's Oxygene, when I had a pair of Koss PRO AAA cans. I love to listen to airy, spacious, ethereal music like Jarre, Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk, Michael Hedges, Brian Eno, and the Master, Mike Oldfield (especially QE2)! A stellar pair of Cans is one of the best avenues to experience the Mood & Passional Transitions these great musicians have composed. Just thought of Pink Floyd & Alan Parsons, also, I have a pair of QJ signature AKG-701's that perform due justice to these recordings!
I have recently become a HUGE FAN of NuForce audio cans & amps. Too me, they not just give you bang for the $$$, but I am truly hearing things in the music I have always listened to, I never heard before! NuForces products are just so quick and produce such a flat response and beautifully defined soundstage, they must be reverse-engineering some Alien Audio Standard.
In fact, there first pair of real over the ear Studio Monitor Cans will soon be released & I HAVE been waiting over a year to buy a pair!
I guarantee for the $200 or so price tag, they will sound better than Cans 3-4 times the price! That has been my experience with each and every earphone & Amp I have purchased from then, IMHO! I also l also love Neo-Progressive Rock like Porcupine Tree, Anathema, Pendragon, & anything PT genius leader ,Steven Wilson, has a part in. Right now that would be his personal self-titled endeavors!

I get goose bump when I listen to "Romantic Warrior" by Return to Forever using my K501.

Make me remember my childhood when he was popular in France, i bought one of his cd, one of the first using 5(.1 i guess) channels technology

To answer to the topic a lot of songs of Continuum by John Mayer sounds nice on my L1, especially Gravity and I'm Gonna Find Another You

And it's even better in live

Really good one!

 

post #2501 of 3687

Wow, what an awesome thread.  Downloading Dream Theater right now and see what the fuss is about!

 

I'll offer a few alternatives based on stuff folks posted:

 

If you love Dire Straits-- Check out the 2nd album you never hear: Communique.  "Once Upon a Time in the West" has an hypnotic bass line.  Also the drums at the end of "News"-- it's like sitting at a sound check on good cans, and it's fresh because you never hear any of its songs on the radio.

 

Eric Clapton Unplugged gets a lot of praise, deservedly.  But there are two other albums that will blow you mind-- On "Play the Blues Live from Lincoln Center" he pairs with Wynton Marsalis for an evening of jazz standards.  Clapton backed by a big band?  Are you kidding?  Also for more grit-- check out "Me and Mr. Johnson".  An outstanding overdrive recording.

 

McCartney has released 96k recordings of all of his early solo records- available for download from his web site.  Band on the Run and RAM (the more I hear it, the more I believe it's the answer to "Pet Sounds" he always wanted to make with the Beatles).  

 

Oh-- for the Beatles-- Of course anything is terrific, and the re-issues sound fine-- Check out the Beatles "Love" for a remix sonic sensation.  I'm not a huge fan of re-mixes in general-- but George Martin oversaw this one, and it's pretty creative.  His son did the actual mixing, as Sir George's hearing has failed in a bitter irony.

 

Speaking of remixes-- There's an SACD floating around of The Grateful Dead's "American Beauty".  It's a bit of a remix (sonically, not content)-- with an insanely wide soundstage.  Even if you hate the Dead, it's a recording to appreciate.  It's the best sub-bass on a rock recording I've ever heard.

This whole album sounds fantastic on my K501s. I never really liked the album all that much, but I'm definitely digging it now.

 

You know a headphone has gone above and beyond it's regular duty when it makes you like music you didn't like before. biggrin.gif
