This is what I love about listening to audiophile disks, especially if its well recorded, the nuances of the sound, even on a non high end system is outstanding.
That said, when I was stationed in Amsterdam I had a co-worker who had such a high end system, I think his was around 100k, made the Dutch audio magazines. Anyway the first time I heard Yello’s CD, Flag
, and that killer bass on "Tied Up" on those Klipsch Horns (I think), being pushed by a pair of Mark Levinson mono blocks, and his 20K CD player, I was completely blown away. He had some other stuff in that system but I just remember those speakers and amps.
I remember him telling me he could feel goose bumps listening to that system. I'd have to agree, that was one impressive system. In fact as I sit here now listening to that same CD, that system comes to mind.
BTW... if you like heavy bass and drums, this is a good CD to have. Style is considered Latin
Another great sounding high-end audiophile CD with a great bass and drums is Dire Straight's Brothers in Arms. I dare say you haven't heard this CD till you heard the XRCD version
I also have the original CD release and the XRCD version blows it out the water!
BTW the other two CD's are the DCC versions of the Doors' L.A. Woman, and Elton John's Greatest Hits.
