I guess my favorite bands, in no particular order, would be:

 

The Clash

Perfume

Camera Obscura

Maximum the Hormone

The Asteroids Galaxy Tour

Dave Brubeck Quartet

311

The Slackers

They Might Be Giants

Whenever Itzhak Perlman and Yo-Yo Ma play together

 

On a side note, to the previous poster that mentioned Operation Ivy, while they'll always be a band I remember first listening to via a cheap CD player and the headphones that came with it, I was pleasantly surprised at how good "Energy" sounded on a more "head-fi-esque" setup, despite having the kind of recording quality you'd expect from a punk album of that time. I guess just like Louis Armstrong and Fritz Kreisler, who unfortunately didn't leave behind recordings of a particularly great sound quality either, the music they made transcended any technological limits that they may have met.
