Random Access Memories [VINYL] ~ Daft Punk

5.0 out of 5 stars RAM Daft Punk, 25 May 2013
Superb. Mature. Soulful. Funky and lots of moog modular synthesizer. And no compression/loudness war ruining it. Old school disco with daft punk twist. Sound quality is audiophile. Excellent recording techniques good bass extension crystal clear. If your over 40 you will get it. If your under 25 perhaps not. Children love it. Its time pop music grew up again and daft punk has reset the bench mark. No duff tracks, a tour de force of intellegent witty and full of humanity. Recommended especially if you have high end stereo or top headphones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holst, 7 July 2011
Amazingly good recording, and so good to hear other pieces by Holst too - and they are really lovely.
SA-CD sound is top notch - especially in surround sound. Works very well in 'CD' mode as well. Well worth having in your collection.
The organ pedal notes are subtle when compared to the somewhat over the top version from Charle Dutoit but in general the sound quality is streets ahead.

What seemed slightly disappointing at first turned out to be highly entertaining. Its a monologue rather than music, but its great to listen to whilst working.
