I'm in a good place!

 

Probably my favorite female vocalist on the planet... Her first album is still my favorite, but this and The Absence are both great too. Great call, man ;)

I use it for all my cans.  No signal loss whatsoever.  And I'm a picky SOB when it comes to that.

Since I got my GS1000 I have enjoyed them immensely. I thought it sounded pretty dang good from the beginning. They seem to be changing and for the better. The treble is finally settling and man these things just sound awesome. I didn't think they would surpass the RS-1 for pure enjoyment but these are gaining ground quickly. It is hard to stop listening. The bass is fantastic and the detail that these things come up with is amazing all the while keeping it exciting, that is what I love about Grado. They just make the music sing.

I am still bouncing back and forth...GS1000i...PS1000i...GS1000i...PS1000i...I think it would help if the names were more different.

Also one of my favorite vocalists period. And she has an amazing story too (she used music to recover from a really terrible car accident injury)
I dig her new album so much, it's my favorite yet of hers!

Loads of detail...delightfully open sound, reaches deep on bass when needed. I like them a lot...that said, I have never heard earlier Magnum iterations...

Yeah, she did a song about it on her first album. Pretty amazing story, IMO. No idea how you have a voice that is so unbelievably good and you go that long without knowing it. Unfortunate way to find out though, of course.

I was listening to a little Brubeck this morning, but right now ThePianoMan has got me going on a Bill Evans binge.

Philip Glass - Koyaanisqatsi.

I knew the soundtrack before i knew the film, but both left me very impressed. (To an emotional level)

I know it's not jazz, but there's more than enough brass in there wink.gif

I went back and listened to some of my John Adams (gran pianola music) and Steve Reich (music for 18 musicians) after that comment!  Man I love all this music (I haven't yet seen all of Koyaanisqatsi yet, but I really love what I have seen so far, and the music is so excellent)  I find minimalism to be really powerful, emotionally speaking.

Music for 18 musicians is so amazing. More people need to have it (and terry Riley's "in C")
