    This was the program from the Dallas Symphony concert that I went to a couple of weeks ago. It's not the same without Jaap van Zweden, but the guest conductor did a pretty good job. Had great control of the orchestra with a pretty dynamic performance.

    The music world lost a giant in Sam Pilafian Friday night. I never had the fortune of meeting the man myself, everybody that has all say the same thing. He was a wonderful human being with a never ending passion for music. His recordings with the Empire Brass and solo jazz recordings are what...

    Being a bit nostalgic and remembering my days in concert band. The first one is an orchestral arrangement, but this is a fantastic performance.

    Some more love for Russia. Make sure that you have time to listen to these before you start. Both are over an hour.

    Don't remember if I already posted this or not, but I've had the final movement stuck in my head since I saw the Dallas Symphony perform this about a year ago. I wouldn't consider Jaap Van Zweden to be another Kleiber, but he is one of the better living conductors. Always energetic with very...

    The Hifiman does require some power to really open up, but once you do give it some power it's great for large symphonic works. Very detailed with great imaging and soundstage. The soundstage sounds very true, not the usual 3 areas of sound. The Sennheiser HD600 are also great very classical...

    I've been looking for a good guitar version of this. This is one of the pieces from the Oystein Baadsvik video that I posted a few videos back. I didn't realize that it was about the winters in Buenos Aires.

    Found the Kubelik recording after I posted the other one, but I don't mind listening to this two times in a row.

    Do you have this box set? I got it a few years ago. Great compilation. It includes this recording of the Hungarian March. I still prefer his recording with Chicago, but this one's pretty good too...

    = HiFiMAN HE-560 Impressions & Discussion Thread =

    I can't say about portable amps or Daps, but I think that you will really enjoy the HE560 for classical. I got mine about a week ago and have been powering them through my Audio GD stack. Good soundstage, great imaging, natural timbres, very accurate sounding. I'll have to start posting more...

    Just stopping by the say hi. My HE560 should be arriving today, but it will be a few days before I can use them with my home setup. Anybody here use them with an Audio GD stack? I've got the Precision 2, which I've read from reviews is very close to the Master 9 in performance, just with a...

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    Looking at grabbing a Spartan with the current sale. Anybody here match it up with an Opus #1? I searched the thread and didn't see anybody commenting on this combo, except that the Opus hisses with most EE offereings.

    The RE600 with the LGV10 is one of my favorite combos. I haven't heard the RE400, but it should be a pleasant combo.

    thebit Opus#1 DAP from South Korea

    The Pioneer/Onkyo were on my list of DAPs when I was looking to buy. The specs on them were very similar to my LG V10, so I decided to try something a little different and went with the Opus #1. Comparing the 2, I would say that the Opus is more neutral, a little drier sounding, and wider...

    thebit Opus#1 DAP from South Korea

    Just went to the website, and I'm liking what I see. I like how like how they say that the Hermes would be good for saxophonists. They're really getting specific on their targeted users. I'll have to look through the line up and see if any are recommended for tuba players. You'll have to...

    Audeze iSINE 10 & iSINE 20: Audeze releases two new IEM planar magnetic earphones

    Just got my iSine 10 in yesterday. Only got the 3.5 mm cable as I don't use apple products. This is my first planar audio device, and I finally see what all of the hype is about. I've been throwing every genre that I have at them, and they respond well to all of them. My biggest surprise is...

    I have been experiencing the same issue for the last couple of months.  I've had to move away from IEMs as well.  I got the Meze about a week ago, and I have had very little issue with ear discomfort.  I say go for these as the comfort is good and the sound quality is great.  More detailed than...
