I wasn't planning on bringing mine because it somehow got damaged on the way up to CF before last, but if I have to I will. Hell, it will give me an incentive to finally get it back up and running...
Tom.

I have had a new VPI Classic Turntable on order for over a month, if I ever get it, I will be bring it to CF10, with my set of Bob's 180's.

Some of what I'll be bringing this year:

Yellowjackets: Time Squared (SACD)
Image

One of my favorite SACDs. Recording is SUPERB and the songs are fantastic. The first cut, "Go Go", is one of my favorite jazz songs, EVER. Nominated for the 2004 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Jazz Album. This is a hybrid Super Audio CD with both regular Redbook and Super Audio CD layers.

The Yellowjackets are: Bob Mintzer (soprano saxophone, tenor saxophone, clarinet, bass clarinet, synthesizer); Russell Ferrante (piano, keyboards); Jimmy Haslip (electric bass); Marcus Baylor (drums, percussion). Additional personnel: Jean Baylor (vocals).

Norah Jones: Not Too Late (SACD)
Image

Norah Jones is the daughter of sitar virtuoso Ravi Shankar and Sue Jones, an American concert promoter. Norah has sold almost 40 million albums worldwide, half of them copies of her debut LP "Come Away With Me." She cites her early influences as Billie Holiday and Willie Nelson. She spent her childhood at a variety of musical schools but left her musical studies unfinished when she decided to move to New York, supporting herself by working as a lounge singer.While "Come Away With Me" earned her Album, Record and Song of the Year and Best New Artist awards at the Grammys, I find I REALLY prefer "Not Too Late" as her best effort.

Steely Dan: Everything Must Go
Image

Quite possibly my favorite Steely Dan offering. The title track, "Everything Must Go", is one of my favorite recordings. If you haven't heard any of the "new" Steely Dan, try "Two Against Nature" and "Everything Must Go" soon.

Donald Fagen:

As in his Steely Dan efforts, Donald Fagen's recordings are meticulously engineered. ALL recording engineers should take notice of Donald's techniques (as well as Micheal Jackson's). They are two of the cleanest recording musicians you'll ever find.

Morph the Cat
Image

An EXCELLENT offering by the ubiquitous lead singer from Steely Dan. The LOW bass on this CD is bone-shattering~

Kamakiriad
Image

Probably my favorite of all Mr. Fagen's offerings. "Countermoon" & "On the Dunes" are really great songs with wicked lyrics, but "Teahouse on the Tracks" has one of the best trombone solos I've heard in my life. A must-have recording.

The Nightfly
Image

An excellent recording which has the distinction of being the VERY FIRST digitally-recorded commercial CD! "Green Flower Street" and "Ruby Baby" are two very old songs that are a true treat in the form presented on this CD.

More to come.... :D

The Nightfly is one of my favorites. Rabbit, if you like the CD, wait till you hear the vinyl. O:)

Skip, you should know by now you aren't going to convert me to vinyl. I've heard ONE THE BEST (BlueMDPicker) turntables on the planet & still prefer SACD or a well-recorded CD~ :D

Wayne, don't worry. There will be plenty of rock. FYI, One of the albums I have is Godsmack on SACD. This album is worthy of an audiophile recording IMO and it absolutely rocks. In fact, I hated Godsmack before I got this album. Now I LOVE Godsmack, go figure....

This thread is more tuned toward recordings that are up to par with a great system. There will be more music there than we could possibly play on every system if they were all going 24/7 throughout the event. About every genre of music as well including the two I can't stand the most......rap and opera. ](*,)
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

I'll bring my SACD of Jazz at the Pawnshop so we can compare it with Tom Reitz's XRCD.
