If you like southern rock, The best of The Outlaws shines. The separation of the 3 guitars is amazing on most of the songs when listening through my crs's. Of all my cd's, this is top 5.

A mix/production quality question:
I'm going through a lot of music from this list, making playlists to play right now on my Monitor 12 so I can do a well-listened comparison to the 1c.
3 albums that stand out, so far, to me are:
- The Wall (original CD master)
- Guero by Beck
- The Gereg by The Hu
What other albums do you guys recommend that match the fullness, presentation, instrumental separation, tonal accuracy, and overall presence of The Wall?
I'm a lifelong Rush fan, but after listening to The Wall repeatedly, Moving Pictures sounds oddly antiseptic and... I don't know... flat? Not dull... just lacking the dynamic completeness of The Wall.
So, now I'm looking for other albums that have the balance and richness of The Wall.
Anyone else know what I mean?
Anyone else have SDA recommendations based on that?

Pick up an original Mercury ‘atomic’ copy of the CD, or download the hi-rez version two (the one that has the dynamics still intact). You’ll get that depth and width quality back in spades.

Frank Zappa-Jazz From Hell. Pretty much anything he produced is top shelf. As is Dire Straits/Mark Knopfler.

I've yet to hear a Rush album that was recorded at that level....or anywhere close to it, for that matter. Damned shame too.
Here is a recommendation for something even better than PF's The Wall. "Ascent" (song 1) from Don Dorsey off of the Telarc album "Time Warp", performed by one of my favorites. Erich Kunzel and the Cincinatti Pops Orchestra.

FLAC (16/44) stored on OMV NAS box. All devices Gigabit hard wired. Raspberry Pi4, Allo BOSS2 DAC, IOT Electronic Allo Nirvana SMPS power supply. I have yet to find a streaming service that is adequate, so I rip my own files. Absolutely no signal processing. Schiit Freya + passive mode, Krell KAV-250a, SDA SRS I. If it's not spinning, it's NAS streamed.

There are few remasters that I find worth wile. That said, a few of the Led Zeppelin original remasters are quite good compared to the original releases.
