    Hello everyone, i just purchased my first pair of high end speakers (dynaudio audience 52's) and need some music to go along with them. I am partial to just about anything; excluding rap and country. So if anyone can recommend any good albums in any format (sacd, cd etc) i would really appreciate it. I just don't want to go to the store and waste a bunch of money on random classical and jazz cd's etc and find out half of them are crap. Thanks in advance!

    Well, how about "none"?

    You must have some favorites in your collection now, right? For me, the fun of an equipment upgrade is seeing what it can do with old favorites.

    But if you insist, I just bought the SACD of Elton John's Madman Across the Water. While I have not tried the 2CH layers, the MC mix is wonderful, and very, very smooth in the highs, unlike GBYBR, which is harsh in some places.

    Thank you for the reply's i appreciate it. In response to Brian, in all honesty i do have some favorites in my collection, but my collection consists of almost entirely mp3's because i never needed the quality of a cd with my pathetic system in the past. Most of which is rock music and with the system upgrade i would like to also start listening to some classical and jazz which would have sounded like crap on my old stereo. Thanks again.

    Not really jazz, but try Morphine, they were a 3 peice with no guitars, sax, slide bass and drums, very groove based stuff. Start with Yes or Cure for Pain. The night sounds good but is slower and more mellow(depressing even) but very good none the less.
    sort of along that lines, Cousteau-first album, who kind of reminds me of (mellow) elvis costello meets morphine? best i could come up wiht?

    Alice in Chains-Unplugged, Jar of Flies
    Radiohead-bends, kid a, ok computer
    NIN-downward spiral (sacd or dual disc), or the fragile cd
    beck-seachange sacd
    tool-lateralus
    depeche mode-violator, ultra
    david bowie-heathen(sacd), earthling or hours...


    I'm a huge fan of Primal Scream so I could 2nd that, I like their Evil Heat and Give out but dont' give in discs equally as well as xtrmntr.

    Ummm...... Isn't this a bit like saying you bought a gallon of super-unleaded and you want some suggestions as to what kind of car you should put it in?

    Anyhow: Judas Priest Metalogy boxset.
