Just discovered Gregory Porter - downloaded the liquid spirit album after hearing him on Jools Holland. I think it's the best sounding album I've heard on the 800s. Stunning production and mastering .

I have his 3 albums, i prefer the other 2 - "Water" and "Be Good" also i seen him live with Roy Hargrove, it was one of the best gigs that i have ever seen.

amazing stuff -  kinda like Donny Hathaway/ Marvin Gaye with lots of jazzy overtones, the vocals are not as smooth as Marvin though.

I've got "Liquid Spirit" and "Be good" and I agree with above statement. Overally fabulous albums and that sounds especially good on HD800 :L3000: .  

 

 

Since I have my HD800 I listen massively to Classical and Modern Jazz .. these last days : 

 

 

700  

 

 

 

... listening to those musics through HD800 is really sublime.

Dream Theater's latest self-titled album is pretty sick. Sound quality is also quite good for a non-audiophile, rock album.

HDtracks currently offers a hi-rez version of this album.

You can listen to everything produced on some jazz labels like ECM ou ACT for example but most of recent Jazz recordings sound perfectly with my HD800.
