I don't listen to a lot of Mozart but I do like classical at times. All those genres are dependent on mood.

 

Sometimes I just want the most beautiful sounding stuff

 

I hit up The Eagles, live recordings, bi aural recordings, and classical, and Fleetwood mac

 

when that happens.

 

When I want to pump it, I switch to speakers and let the newest lil wayne and EDM pump out.

I listen to almost exclusively Jazz, but I have all of deadmau5's, C418's, and Skrillex's albums. I don't like Skrillex as much, but I love slower songs by deadmau5 like Strobe and his early albums are my favorite because they are just so much different than all electronic music! C418 made the music for Minecraft and has a lot of great music for listening to when playing Minecraft (what a surprise!) and it's also really calming. I still have some alternative rock like Alexisonfire and metal left over from before I started listening to jazz.

 

I now declare this thread officially derailed.

Oh yes Jazz. I am geting interested in it. I just saw a series Sakamichi no Apollon and it got me very interested in jazz.

 

All I ask of you

Breakin A Sweat

Summit

 

Are probably the songs you may like from Skrillex? They have more sonic weight to them then just DROP!

Benny Goodman

 

Chet Baker

 

Glenn Miller

 

Miles Davis

 

Stan Getz

 

Woody Herman

 

Louis Armstrong

I'm doing light demo'ing of Miles Davis and Art Blakey right now based off what I saw in the show.

How would The National sound with electronic music? I occasionally listen to deadmau5, and I'm just not sure about warm tube sound (not actual tubes, but it's supposed to sound very similar to The Continental) + electronic music.

The National is amazing for $300; IMO it also pairs amazingly with IEMs. Love the build quality too. Feels like a proper amp.

Ok, so I now have $350 sitting in my PayPal. $350.00 absolute tops including shipping, so probably $300.00 for the actual amp. What would people recommend most? I have been having second thoughts about The National. I'm just not sure. Are there any other recommendations? I want a considerable upgrade from the E11, so I'm not really interested in the C&C (Seems more like FOTM than anything else). I'll be using mostly the ATH-M35 & R-50, but as a fair reference, let's assume I'm using the ATH-M50s that I have (I consider the ATH-M35 and M50 nearly identical in sound).

It is SIMPLY AMAZING. 

 

Blue has been out for half a year so it's not new but it depends on if you were following it closely.
