I did'nt when I first listened yesterday on earphones thought it was a bit um... reserved a bit conventional. Then when I got home today played on my system and wow great sound and so skilfully done. I listened to that Passenger album briefly you can see how much they have developed much fuller sound. They are my go to when I need guaranteed enjoyment. 

Ever thought of getting a Sonos Conect for the old Accuphase assuming you have Spotify Premium?

I don't have Premium as it happens, but being blind as a bat lol! don't think I'd be able to operate something like Sonos and that's one reason I spent so much on a CDP.

You're right about Passenger... that CD is pretty pricey on Amazon, so will leave that for now.

Try this too

RE: What are you listening to?

Just trying Angus and Julia Stone, just got off the Big Jet Plane !!

Ok will do 

As for Sonos you can control it through a Sonos desktop software so nice and big!! If you can type on here you're to winner, it's so simple.

I think you would be surprised by the quality of Premium 320kbs or alternatively I might be gob smacked at the quality of a really good CDP. Not sure i want to find out! It's just so convenient and easy.

Yer I appreciate the convenience of streaming, got all my albums ripped to an external hard drive, but I just prefer the physical format and the solid reliability of the EMC1UP... never say never though

Some good upbeat stuff for you here...

RE: What are you listening to?

Tooth and Nail by Billy Bragg - It's only a personal opinion but it is my album of the year thus far and I doubt there will have been a better one come 31/12. 

Great shout on The Civil Wars - if rumours are true, it's likely to be their last which is a great shame.  If not heard already, I would recommend their first album - Barton Hollow.  You might even think it's better than the new one!

RE: What are you listening to?

 

This week I have been listening to The Beatles - The White Album. I put off listening to this album for ages, worried that it wouldn't live up to the hype. 

 

WhoMadeWho - Space For Rent and Arctic Monkeys - Do I Wanna Know are battling for playtime too. Some great tracks.

Worried only ou and poss Electro might follow it lol!

Don't do Vynal anymore... got fed up with scratchy old LP's, but yes used to enjoy the unwrapping process with them too.

Took me a long time to take the plunge and buy Angus&Julia's works as wasn't sure I liked their vocals, but once got the first CD, couldn't stop playing it, so ordered them all! 

The same with Laura Veirs.
