    If you don't subscribe to Tidal already, I'd recommend their Hifi subscription which means CD quality, and now also MQA (hi rez). I think everything mentioned here is available on Tidal.

    I always thought the Fleetwood Mac albums from the Lyndsy Buckingham era sounded really good

    The Yardbirds
    "Roger the Engineer" 2-disc set. Re-mastered. The mono mix is great. Even has an improved "Stroll On" which actually has Beck and Page playing live together. The stereo mix is still suffering from too much 'verb.

    So over the past few months i’ve started listening to music again in a “serious” way (as in not just because I want to learn some guitar part). This past week, I took the plunge and got myself an actual “hi-fi” system - designed for apartment living. I’m now listening on a set of HiFi-man HE-400i headphones through a little Fiio Q1 dac/amp. With the Spotify “extreme” quality (320kbs) from my Iphone it sounds pretty frikkin stunning!

    So what’s been the most awesome sounding song so far?

    Like A Prayer by Madonna! Yup, that’s right. That recording sounds amazing. There’s a couple points in the song where it sounds like one member of the choir is standing right beside you.

    Another good one is Higher Love by Winwood.

    Tenth Avenue Freeze-out by Springsteen.

    Blue/joni mitchel

    Actually, here’s the little demo playlist i’ve Assembled...

    Carey/Joni Mitchell
    Hate it Here/Wilco
    Like A Prayer/Madonna
    Hold On, Hold On/Neko Case
    Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out/Bruce Springsteen
    Got The Time/Joe Jackson
    Immigrant Song/Led Zeppelin - that apocalyptic wash of tremolo-drenched electric guitar at the beginning of each verse! I’m like the people in those David Blaine shows every single time - holy **** what’s goin on heeeeeeeeeere?! :D
    Higher Love/Steve Winwood
    Sexual Healing/Marvin Gaye

    Albums on vinyl that have blown me away lately

    Big Star: #1 Album
    Matthew Sweet: Girlfriend
    Radiohead: OK Computer (the new remaster OKNOTOK 20th anniversary release, remastered from the analog tapes, the older vinyl version was too compressed)
    David Bowie: Hunky Dory
    Beck: Odelay

    Herbie Hancock - The Imagine Project

    Listening to it right now, for the first time. Sounds really, really good.
