Been meaning to make this thread for awhile. So I've got some downtime and am finally committing. After about 9 years of being in the headphone hobby I've finally set most of my time on recordings. I've found after countless headphones, amps, and DACs getting the best quality recording really is what matters at this point. Yes I'll be that person pouring over multiple recordings to find my favorite. So over the last 3 years, I've really honed in on this. My favorite type of recording by far is live concert recordings, and I want to share some of my favorites. The sense of space is really amplified (no pun) on a good recording. So I'll shut up and here we go! 1. John Mayer - Where the Light is Only in recent years have I really gotten into Mayer's stuff. This album is what really swung me. His other albums have such low SQ, it distracted from the music. Found a quick little sample. Best recording: Get the Blu-Ray. It really sounds a lot better. Youtube clip above is definitely from the Blu-Ray (bluray) (CD) 2. Jason Isbell - Live at Austin City Limits One of the reasons for making this thread is the fact that I found many great recordings and artists on CS. One of my favorite new artists (new to me, that is) is Jason Isbell which I found on CS. He needs no introduction around here. Audio taken from the DVD. (DVD) 3. Adele - Live at the Royal Albert Hall I'm not a huge fan of her music, but Adele's voice is truly stunning. Unfortunately (for me) I wasn't impressed with her voice until I started hearing live recordings. The studio productions really don't do her voice justice. Again, do yourself a favor and grab the Blu ray. (bluray) (CD) So, what do you guys think so far? I have a few more I can get into, if there's interest.
