EMI isn’t perfect, but if it’s a good performance I won’t hesitate.

I started collecting Zigeunerweisen performances after one of your earlier postings.
Hi Folsom,

Now I am going after Rachmaninoff's Vocalise. I bought Vocalise in piano, cello, violin and opera. It is such a beautiful music. Sound best in cello and opera imo. Will let you know which pressing is worth having. They are not expensive.

Tang :)

On Mr.Fremer's Analog Planet, I saw a video of SAT/Opus1 playing Fanfare for the Common Man. It sounded excellent on his video. Apart from his incomparable high level of professional recording he has over me, his video took out the variables of room play and speakers vs my homemade shaky vid with amps, speakers, cables and room in play. Listeners will not get an approximation of how his system sound but mine does. Different objectives. So I bought this record of Eiji Oue Minesota Orchestra Reference Recordings. The sound from this record is so majestically grand. The depth, the width, the ambient and musical impact are just impressive. If you don't already have this you should get one.

This time I let you guys hear from the side and also get a feel of my room. You have to bear with my shaky hand. What is largely lacking from the video vs real is the depth of sound field. This record really plays depth in real. And Guess what. When I listen to this youtube from speakers of my iPad mini, it actually gives better sense of ambient of my room a lot better than listening from earphone. Don't know why.

If you appreciate Reference Recordings and music from the XX century you should get the "Ebony Concerto" . Other than the delicious Stravinsky piece it includes several music pearls - I am sure you will love this recording. Some people consider that Reference Recordings are not "natural" but I always considered them highly. The feeling of rhythm and joy of the young orchestra and the quality of the soloist goes through the recording.

You should play that on Opus and techdas since you haven't posted such music videos recently. Ron and others can then get a good feel for the system.
