Default Super Quality CD Recording

I'm looking for CD (Jazz and Classic music) with great quality of sound.
Listening "Reference Recording" CD I get extraordinary quality of sound to hear.
Does anyone recommend me other "labels" with so great quality of recording quality.
Thanks
Roberto

Many blue Notes and Verve are rather good for Jazz but RR is special, i agree. They do not have the funds to promote the big names though. Chesky have graet recording quality too.

Or anyone, for that matter.

But... I'd throw in Mapleshade, Chesky, and Delos. Consistently excellent sound.

Definitely Mapleshade, their stuff is top-notch for evaluating a system.

Mapleshade: I bought 'a bunch' of MS recordings after reading many fave reviews online (and the promos on their website). The recording quality is good, but the music is quite 'ordinary' on the discs I bought.
So they may be of use in evaluating your system, but may stay on the shelf later, when you are paying attention to the music.
YMMV, of course.

any opinons on HDCD? - some universal disc players can still decode these as well as Microsoft media player (they bought the IP)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_De...atible_Digital

whatever you think of the benefits of the acutal HDCD technology people using it did have to go to some additional trouble for a promised improved resolution - maybe that carries through to the production/mastering values of HDCD releases?

I have an old Toshiba DVD player that I have had for about 10 years and I got it on the clearance shelf at Sams club. It supports HDCD. I only have a few CD's that are labled HDCD and they do sound nice. I have a CD of Dave Brubecks Time Out. It states "20 bit mastering" on the front but makes no mention of HDCD. However the HDCD light comes on when I play it and it sounds great.

Windows Media Player also recognizes this CD as a HDCD and engages the decoder (Microsoft now owns the HDCD IP). It will not decode HDCD from a copy ripped with EAC, or when the ripped files are played from the hard drive. The physical CD must be played from the CD drive to get HDCD. A 24 bit sound card is also required for HDCD function.

Windows Media Center does not display the HDCD logo and I can't tell the difference on my $30 "500 watt" computer speakers.
