Which albums sound best with your Grado?

post #1 of 279
Thread Starter 

 

 

 This idea came about from another thread (The PS500 thread), a few of us thought it would be the chance

 to share some album suggestions from Grado owners who feel that their album of choice performs better

 than most on a Grado.

 

 Here's my suggestion, this album sounds amazing but it's quite special through the 325i.

 

 <Apologies in advance for the rather questionable front cover, but hey it's a quality

  instrumental, trust me!>

 

Worth the price of admission just for the opening 20 seconds of the first track 

'Angel with the Blue eyes' - that opening drum beat is unforgettable.

 

 

 Kevin Eubanks - Promise of Tomorrow (1990)

That's a good start. I just discover this group and album this week but I've been listening to it a lot and enjoy the dynamics of the instruments with the vocal. It sound amazing on the MS-Pro.

 

The band is Pink Martini, a Jazz / Lounge music. Enjoy!

I remember I bought this album with my first RS1. It's not the only one that sounds good on them, but I have incredibly fond memories of re-discovering it with the RS1 on that first day.

I lived across the street from Ronnie James Dio.....parents still live there. Jumilla St., Woodland Hills, CA. He used to mow his own lawn with his tour bus parked in front. Was not a Dio fan, but he was a cool guy. My parents were invited to his funeral.

Bad couple of years as a metal fan, between Ronnie James and Peter Steele. :\
