    There is so much good stuff floating about there in cyberspace that I could swamp this thread, but I will try not to. :smile_phones:

    Guys & girls, what gear are you mainly using listening to videos recently?

    Im trying out my new Bowers & Wilkins PX (ANC) headphones.
    They sound much better then the Bose QC35's, or the recent Beyerdynamic Lagoon.
    Im finding they have an airy & spacious presentation (wired only). Very nice. I approve.
    Clamping pressure is going to be an issue for some, as these babies do clamp a bit.

    ok, you are a few weeks late,but music doesn't get more Swedish and "Midsummery "than Alfvén's Midsummer Vigil music.
    Another piece I would recommend by him is his Dala Rapsodi.
    A piece also inspired by Swedish folk music.
    For anybody maybe interested in hearing more from Alfvén, Naxos recorded his entire symphonic output including the 3 Swedish Rhapsodies in the mid 90s.
    His music is maybe the closest we get to a national composer from the same era as Grieg and Sibelius.
    Cheers CC

    I posted this one before but this time I will mention the fly that buzzes around her shoulders and then ends up in the bun of her hair.

    All this fascinating action takes place from 2' to 2' 30''................................:darthsmile:

    I just use whatever is handy plugged straight into my laptop (Fidelio X2 ATM). Youtube videos aren't exactly the pinnacle of fidelity so I'm not bothered to plug in my DAC or anything.
