I believe [hedging here] TalkingHeads "Stop Making Sense" is all digital

True.

Five stars for WillyBob.

 

It was from a film. The film is the first made entirely using digital audio techniques.

Just use one song. An audiophile recording of Long After You're Gone by Chris Jones.

ZZ top "One Foot In The Blues" CD:.

 

Song: "Fool For Your Stockings" 

 

If it's loud enough, the opening note has scared (made em jump) many of my friends... 🙂

 

"Sure got cold after the rain fell" is another awesome song... 

Not a very well known CD, Saw it recommended elsewhere... LOVE It !

Well; played the "dynamic" George Benson recording ... very disappointed  Must be an inferior download. Tried some other suggestions above ... again, not much "definition." To check, played my "Country - The Auction" download from youtube. Again, BLAH  ... played the original CD to compare it and the difference is unbelievable ... the CD gives me real lows/highs and much definition which is absent in the youtube crap   OK; live and learn  
 
If you want to try the real version of "Country - The Auction," PM me with your email address and I can send you a WMV file of it --- too large to post here (4.5MB)  
 
Cheers, Emile


Don’t confuse dynamics (range of amplitude) with wide spectral content. It would be easy to produce either independently. Finding “stunner” tracks that incorporate both is a trick.

I always recommend Norah Jones - Come Away With Me, The Pineapple Thief - Your Wilderness, Eric Clapton - Pilgrim, Dire Straits - On Every Street, Flim and the BB’s - Tricycle. That’s a good starter list.

I do not play it often but the soundtrack to Last of the Mohicans is interesting. Blind Boys of Alabama singing with Ben Harper. Peter Gabriel New Blood orchestra.

For those using spotify (everything I posted is on there) I have also found that an optical toslink from my laptop to avr is incredibly better sounding then my spotify app on say a ps4. I don't pay for spotify (use to but haven't renewed in in awhile. You can still use the app and your account but you have to pause or change songs or you might get an audio ad between songs. A pain for sure.

I use this from a Mac mini to a MAC6700 and it works well. USB is much better but the USB function on that unit AND my C2500 (same basic USB section) is garbage in terms of reliability ie. it doesn't work.
