Journey

I use Journey's Greatest Hits CD and Record to evaluate every bit of equipment I buy. it that recording doesn't sound good, I know I am not going to like a piece of equipment. In fact, I find the first minute of Only The Young is extremely difficult to reproduce well both in detail and brightness and that is the first thing I play when I demo equipment or am tuning in a new piece of equipment in my system.

Recent acquisitions, all original. Except for the Wish You Were Here CD which is Japanese.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone Soundtrack

I actually quite enjoy Harry Potter movies and books and my wife picked up the soundtracks for us. What a great sounding CD. The heavy utilization of bells is interesting along with some extremely dynamic strings. I was pleasantly surprised and will be rolling this into my set of recordings I use for demoing and setup.

Ludovico Einaudi

Ludovico Einaudi: TIme Lapse

Check it out on iTunes at the very least...specifically Time Lapse..it may change your perception of classical music. Very cool.

As for referencing, it is excellent to reference Bass or Subs.
