  1. I’ve wanted to start this thread for a while now, so here goes. This thread is about one thing, and one thing only - Stunning recordings. Any format, any genre. You don’t even have to like the music itself - it’s all about the RECORDING quality. We all know several of the standards - Dire Straits Brothers In Arms SACD, Donald Fagen Nightfly SACD, Fleetwood Mac Rumors DVDA, etc. I’ve come across a few new ones lately too. Please consider sharing your new finds, as well as your “old guard”. Katie Melua, Piece By Piece off the Katie Melua Collection CD. This track has incredible space and imaging right out of the gate. The detail in her vocal presentation is on the level of many Alison Krauss recordings (That’s very high praise). The bass is extremely deep, but without a hint of bloat or boom. The actual lyrics of the song are even touching and deep. The CD is readily available on line for cheap, and I highly recommend acquiring it. https://www.amazon.com/Katie-Melua-Collection-Incl-Bonus/dp/B001B4JVKE/ref=sr_1_15?crid=3H9ZG5QGS9JTE&keywords=katie+melua&qid=1644770023&s=music&sprefix=Katie+me%2Cpopular%2C144&sr=1-15

  5. This is my go to to test systems and speakers. It has outstanding presence and sound stage imagining along with a full range of FQ from very low to very high along with varying attacks of speed of instruments and bass. If your system is set up correct the sound stage will be well beyond the speaker placement. It's cheap too.

  9. Yup its a slippery slope. You don't see it coming but after hanging around here for a while, you compulsively buy. You will soon yield permanently and completely. Many here, I am afraid are in the terminal stages which will only end with total deafness.

  10. Yes! Thank you, just arranged to go pick them up Friday! Hope he doesn't sell em before then. The ebayer who sold me the BA VR-M90 sent me the wrong phone number after I paid him and hasn't replied in days. 😳 Much appreciated jinx there @kve777Guess I'll be shopping for Tekton Pendragons. Looks like they come in 2, 4 or 8 Ohms. With two M1.0T driving each speaker in mono, do I go with the 4 or 8 Ohm speaker? Or for another $300 the 2 Ohm. Do you have any experience with the $200/ $300 Upgrade Package? I had a feeling that joining this site could cause monetary shortages.
