The best binaural piece out there is this:
HECTOR BERLIOZ: Symphonie fantastique; Love Scene from Romeo et Juliette - Cincinnati Sym. Orch./Paavo Jarvi - Telarc SACD-60578
Unfortunately, you need some gear to access it. This is a SACD and you need a multichannel SACD player to get the binaural track. When they recorded this, they stuck a Neumann head (one of the best) up in the balcony and used it to record the rear channels. So if you put this disc on and jack your headphone amp into channels 4 and 5 on your SACD player, you get binaural bliss. On a nice DSD SACD, no less. This is the best recording I've heard. You are there and it's creepily real.
Okay, I got this SACD. But which channels translate into channels 4 and 5? Are they the two surround outputs or the center and surround out or what?
I got bitten by the same bug. I dig and google alot so here is what I have found.
