Some of the music that sounds outstanding with my gear :
 
Sea Change (Album) & all of his other albums but Sea Change especially -Beck
 
Eric Clapton (Especially the albums produced by Tom Dowd)
 
Red House (song) -Jimi Hendrix
 
Most of McCartney's Wings & Single albums remastered especially Japanese mini lp ones or Gold CDs remastered by Steve Hoffman (On most of McCartney's songs there are so many subtle/hidden sounds/instruments and background voice sing songs, etc.)
 
All of their albums -Steely Dan (even their early albums were well produced = detailed sound)
 
Creole Moon (Album) -Dr. John
 
Low Rider (song) -War
 
Say Hello (song) -April Wine
 
All 3 Anthology albums -The Bealtes (better produced and remastered then the 2009 ones).
 
My set up :
 
TEAC PD-H600 CD player w/Burr Brown PCM1796 D/A converter, a 192kHz/24-bit component. 
 
TEAC HA-501 Headphone Amplifier w/damping factor adjusted at mid-low enabling my HD650s to perform at their peak potential (see chart below). 
 
 
PositionHeadphone ImpedanceDamping Factor
HIGHat 32 ohmsDF=76
*at 64 ohmsDF=98
MIDat 120 ohmsDF=97
*at 300 ohmsDF=115
LOWat 600 ohmsDF=118

 
Other factor offered by TEAC HA-501 :  Switchable Output Mode for flexibility Line output level from the rear panel can be switched amongst "Fixed Level", "Variable Level (coupled with volume)" and "Off". I have mine on "Variable Level", I find it adjusts & fluctuates automatically independently from the main volume fine tuning the sound even further.
 
Headphones : (my favourite HPs ever) Senns HD650s (1 yr old) w/Cardas Fat Pipe Cable for HD6XX - 10ft.
Oh, almost forgot : ABSOLUTELY NO VEIL

Just throwing in my 2 cents worth & hope some may try out & enjoy what I've shared.

Ramp up the scale to 10 and that would go down pretty well at some hardstyle events....
 
See this video @4:30 min and you'll see what I mean:
 
 
I'm sure some cross upside down rockers could use something like that in their shows as well - lol.
