    Well she does have a beautiful voice. I wonder how much is Alison and how much was the headphones.[​IMG] I'm sure she could make me cry on other headphones [​IMG]

    Alison fans should check out Madelaine Peyroux's The Blue Room...

    That one is nice. She was in Atlanta just a few weeks ago and my wife and I were able to see her perform a live set in a small venue. It was a really an enjoyable evening. While I like Blue Room, the new release, Secular Hymns, is outstanding. Try the 24/96 for some audiophile goodness.

    Never listened to her before but damn that voice! Really good backing music and nicely mastered which is always a plus. Just spent 2 hours listening and feeling super relaxed now :D
    Tempted to copy you as well and buy some Ether 1.1 foam to try in my Flows as a tad more bass would be good for me personally. I don't suppose you can comment on noticing any negative effects of using the foam like shrinking the soundstage or anything like that?

    Love all those Criterions. At one point I had like 1-4xx on DVD.

    +1 on Secular Hymns.  Outstanding!

    Yeah! I enjoy most of my Criterions, Eureka and BFI blu-rays.

    Thanks. Hobby gone mad.

    That's what I was using. Not the tube amp. I think the V281 is the first SS amp that beats tube amps in tube sound quality.

    Definitely HP's. We are both serious Alison Krauss listeners. She has heard many times before. This is the first time tech made her react that way. All day today she's been talking about a second pair.

    Thanks. I will order tomorrow.

    I could never listen to MP because of the way she mimicked Billie Holiday's phrasing. If her latest effort moves away from that, I'll have to check it out. Who is LJS? (And I only go for abbreviations after someone has been mentioned by name in a prior post, sorry :wink:)

    On another subject, I used to be amused by the periodic comments by listeners who declare Ethers (any model) to be bright without properly burning them in. These things really do change and improve. And then recently I auditioned the Focal Elear at a reputable competitor of mine who carries them. I was warned that they had not been broken in enough but listened anyway. Driven by a very good DAC and amp I am very familiar with, I thought the Elear sounded awful, with hashy muddled highs. It really put me off them. Now, As a seasoned head-fi'er know I need to go back after they are broken in and give them another chance, but... Now I see how some forum members form an opinion and stick with them even when it is unfair (like my experience with the Elear, or someone who listens only on a noisy show floor, or with electronics or even music they are not familiar with). There is no way I would go over to the Elear forum and declare 'These things stink!' (Or better yet, 'These things stink! Have you tried the HD650?' LOL)

    My mother would love this post, she rails against being addressed as a guy. I don't agree with her mind you, she over-reacts. At a restaurant the waitress said hey guys what can I get you and my mother launched into a lecture about how she wasn't a guy. Mothers, you just have to love them.
  14. RCBinTN
    LOL.  Oops, sorry.
    My mother would agree, bless her heart.  She was tougher than most guys I know to this day.  Thanks for the thought.

    Just ordered this CD.  I'm a big fan of Alison Krauss and the notes on this album are very interesting.  Info from the Amazon site...
    "THE BLUE ROOM features Madeleine reinterpreting songs from Ray Charles seminal album MODERN SOUNDS IN COUNTRY & WESTERN MUSIC, as well as others from legendary artists such as Randy Newman and Leonard Cohen, whose legacies are herein enveloped into a similar melting pot of the variety of American popular song.  Released in the summer of 1962, MODERN SOUNDS was a daring album for Charles as it broke the mold of what was expected from him, and in turn, truly represented artistic freedom something that clearly inspires Peyrouxs album THE BLUE ROOM."
    Thanks for the tip!
