Darn right I'm jelly.



Hey!  You got a problem with anime soundtracks?wink.gif  Though, there are some well produced soundtracks out there that are quite good.  Yoko Kano is one anime music composer who has garnered quite a bit of praise for her work.  Her stuff is definitely high-end rig worthy(in my opinion of course).  Checkout a few tracks from Wolf's Rain and Cowboy Bebop and you'll see er, rather hear what I mean.biggrin.gif

The Cowboy Bebop OSTs (mainly The Seatbelts stuff) is some of my favorite music ever (not just anime stuff). It's very, very good.

Totally agree.  One of the best soundtracks I've heard, though Wolf's Rain's is my personal favorite.

Don't forget Yuki Kajiura.

 

Her soundtracks are so awesome they get me emotionally involved in the show no matter how crappy the story is.

 

EDIT:

 

Here's my foobar.  This is on my 3rd monitor which is also my TV so I can listen while relaxing in bed.  I have a wiimote-like remote for my PC to control it.

Simple layout with my VST plugins (TB Isone, speaker and room simulator with crossfeed and HRTF and Voxengo Span, an FFT spectrum analyzer) visible.  Note the Yuki Kaijura playlist.

 

Do modded T50RPs and an Objective2 count as overkill?

 

In any case, I don't care because to me its about the music and not the recording.  If my hose was quieter and I could use open 'phones more often I'd probably have either some vintage Stax or an LCD-2 by now Since I'd probably enjoy them more, even if I don't listen to many "audiophile" recordings.
