This is of course highly subjective, but i would like to hear about your recommendations on music which both sounds good and has musical qualities beyond the usual audiophile crap.
Of course there are benefits if it is streamable or downloadable but i might just as well be CD.
Me, i like samplers, and i’ll start with one of those and one “audiophile crap”-recording!
Danish loudspeaker manufacturer has been compiling samplers for a few years, and the have had a gift for setting up some very nice compilation albums. This one i like a lot:
The Dali CD - Vol.4 - It can be bought here but i dont know if it is streamable. A lovely mix of everything between Laurie Anderson and Infected Mushroom, thats for sure.
And this borders on “audiophile crap” but the lady is a gifted singer and the production is flawless:
Vanessa Fernandez - I Want You - Available from NativeDSD among others, i bought the DSD256 version but these guys are honest enough to say that the DSD64 transfer is upsampled using SoX to the various resolutions above. Anyhoot, i gave it a shot and it really sounds spectacular, but i also listen to the nice interpretation of the songs. (covers, but not in a bad way)
Now, lets hear what you like?
