Quick Hello & Introduction

Hello All:

I recently ventured into the world of hi-end audio and stumbled upon this forum. My budget afforded me:

Audio Research VSi55 Integrated Amp
Rega Apollo CD Player
Wilson Benesch ARC Speakers
An AC Filter and high-end cables

The speakers are just about broken in and I could definitely hear them evolve. I'm now looking for well made recordings that would be enjoyed on this system. I enjoy most music with the exception of Rock. Have recently discovered and enjoy listening to Pink Martini & Jack Johnson. I have a small CD collection with the majority being Classic Rock (which I can no longer appreciate). I do have some jazz CD's (Pat Metheney, Earl Klugh, Miles Davis) and I'm looking to expand in this area. I do have quite a few blues CD's but don't favor this music any longer. I do enjoy classical/orchestra music and have small collection of these as well.

Look forward to reading about new music and viewing all of the different systems everyone has. The sheer number of different high-end manufacturers' simply amazes me.

Great forum!

Rob

Welcome Rob!
I think you'll like it here!
Do you subscribe to the mag? If not,I highly recommend it(no I don't work for Stereophile lol)!
I can relate to what you said about Rock music. It doesn't interest me much anymore. Maybe it's maturity, I don't know.
In any case may I recommend buying the "Editor's Choice" cd from this site? It's a sampler of music recorded by John Atkinson (aka JA)the editor of Stereophile magazine. I bought it a few months ago & I like it more each time I listen to it! John uses a fairly "minimalist"(sp?) approach when recording. There are other cds of his there as well.
Also, check out Chesky Records for high quality recordings.
Also, I just bought 2 samplers from Music Direct. One was Blue Grass the other was a 30th anniversary sampler from Reference Recordings(classical). Both high quality recordings.
Ok, I'll stop rambling! Again, welcome! Larry

Thanks Larry, I definitely plan on subcribing to the magazine and will try the Eitor's Choice CD. Thanks for the tip on Chesky Records, will Google them now and see what they have.

Thanks again,

Rob
