So is that your position that Infected Mushroom and Bill Evans are requiring the same audio system? You can seriously say the same about Keith Jarrett and Deadmau5?

And to you Flash any Kiss concert sound has the same merit than Yo-Yo Ma?

Everything is on the same level?

I can confidently say properly reproducing an album like Bjork's Vulnicura requires quality gear. I've had Bill Evans sounding right with less effort. Infected mushroom? Keith Jarrett? Deadmau5? Kiss concerts? No idea, not really my thing.

So what are your electronic music recommendations? That's the point of the thread in case you lost your way.

Lost my way?

In the beginning of my intervention I reacted with a short comment about the Tidal need over Spotify to enjoy electro. Then I responded to the Electro Avengers. And again I like Electro almost as much than I like jazz. My final point is that I realy think that acoustical music needs more quality gear than electro.


Recommandation? The Brian Eno last offering on Spotify.

Yes! A Kiss concert is entitled to the same quality of sound as a Yo-Yo Ma concert. It is kind of a silly comparison, Kiss vs. Yo-Yo Ma, but I see that you are just trying to show off your great knowledge of music. You really should be comparing Infected Mushroom to Sphongle. They are both from a similar genre of music, and yet have a very different sound. Your idea that a cello has more musical merit than an electric guitar is just BS! But I guess you can't hear the difference between a Fender Telecaster and Gibson Les Paul, cause hey there are just electronic instruments and not worthy.

Ok. I get that you can't hear a difference. I also get that you are a music snob too. But Sphongle has just as much going on musically as the soundtrack to Braveheart, and benefits just as much when played back on quality equipment.

I started listening to electronic stuff after digging through some of my audio mag's to see what reviewers are listening to, and finding some reviewers use it, Solar Fields, AES Dana, Hol Bauman are examples.

Anybody play video arcade games in the 80's?

How 'bout some Nicole Lizee 'Arcadiac'...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TC4PUUK00L0
Electro-acoustic classical with a symphony orchestra and Nicole on electronics and visuals.

Or perhaps A Kubrick fan? You've never seem/heard him like this...
