What are you currently listening to?
« on: 10 Apr 2010, 09:17 pm »
What CD do you have on right now? What tune is on the radio? Listening to a movie? Let us know!

I am enjoying a classic: Rainbow



I prefer Japanese pressings, they usually sound much better. They know how to master a CD.

Is that a re-mastered version of Rainbow? I restored mine with the BCD-1. 8)
I love the song, Catch the Rainbow and Still I'm Sad, which IMO is a better version than in Stranger in Us All.

Thoose are japanese remasters on SHM-CD.
They are amazing, i've bought a lot of them recently.
I'm quite in love with Bill Evans so i have lots of his albums on SHM-CD...
Sounds great.
SHM-CD uses the LCD panels technology that JVC worked on (for new DILA panels), the layers between the writen layer are more transparent and details get amazingly out of it  :o
Harmonics are stunning on SHM-CD for ex...
You should try...

Believe me, you can go way better with SHM-CD + BCD-1  8)

yup, they are absolutely fabulous! unfortunately i do not have a bcd-1, i make due with my marantz, but that isn't a bad player either. when my marantz dies (or i find a really sweet deal for a second hand pre owned one) chances are that one will appear here. providing it plays more than just 38 tracks that is.

currently in my cd player:

Just picked up a used Bryston 4B to complement the Onix Reference 3s I bought a month or two back, which I had Skiing Ninja Master upgrade xover installed, platinum caps, and no-rez.

My 1st Bryston listening session.

Right now getting the amp and speakers acquainted with each other with Jaco Pastorius - "Word of Mouth".

Why can't this thread go w/ the regular what are you listening to now thread? W/ a gazillion forums, why can't threads be put in their proper place, or are these nominations proprietary? Won't they play on other than Bryston gear.

A most astute and interesting observation - perhaps I will quietly reflect upon and contemplate this comment while I have Siouxsie & The Banshees’ - “Twice Upon a Time - The Singles” playing on my Bryston gear.



Be well…

A pleasant “Good day” or a very brief discussion about the weather or work is the limit of our socialization.

Perfect neighbours.

Vinyl? You know you can't do that. Each one needs its own optimal cartridge, pre-amp and tube amp in order to sound best! A couple of pairs of different speakers won't hurt either....

Nap.  :icon_twisted:

Nap,

you mean that depending on what vinyl you are going to play you would use different cartridges?
seems to be a neverending story...
