Early in this thread a few people mention Avalon by Roxy Music. I wonder if anyone can definitely recommend (or not) the remastered version (1999) over the original (1993)? Anyone directly compared them? Thanks, Keith Ostertag

Personally I would go with the original recording. Remastered doesn't necessarily mean better. Could be compressed, and not as dynamic.

Thanks Zeptoplix, I understand. Here are a few cd's (that haven't been already mentioned) that I tend to gravitate toward whenever I build/buy a new piece of equipment or change my system; Sven Grunberg: Prana Symphony, Milarepa Lou Reed: Magic and Loss Tuck & Patti (any, Windham Hill) Chris Isaak: SanFrancisco Days The Orb (any) Bill Frisell (any) Dead Man Walking soundtrack John Fahey (any, on Vanguard)

that's one thing you will fight with quite a bit is too much compression trying to tighten things up but then dynamics suffer

Wide dynamics in the studio is terrific, but in the home with its high ambient level, not good at all. Some of my recordings have such a wide dynamic range, they are unlistenable in every person's room I know.

These days many recordings are compressed so much as to severely affect the sound quality.
The stuff I heard by Green Day is a good example, 'American Idiot' is so compressed it is unlistenable. I had to delete it from my itunes folder as it is painful to the ears, especially when played loud.
Horrible, just horrible…

On the other hand I have never come across a recording which was unlistenable due to too much dynamic range. Not necessarily ideal for background music but never unlistenable.
