Hey there, I'm in the process of re-ripping my CD's to Lossless formats to take advantage or a great sounding set of speakers I've recently purchased. I've really re discovered my love of some albums - and it occurs to me that some albums are just MEANT to be listened to in surround ( apologies to 2 channel only fundamentalists wink.gif ) .. Here's my top 5 so far - What's everyone got on their best of list to take advantage of their setup?

1. Nine Inch Nails - The Downward Spiral
2. Radiohead - O.k. Computer
3. Elliot Smith - Figure 8 ( surprisingly! )
4. Moby - Play
5. Depeche Mode - Violator

Obviously Dark Side of the Moon is PROBABLY just ridiculously awesome - just haven't sampled it with this set up yet!
Looking forward to your suggestions!

I find Dido - No Angel really comes across nicely in PLII.

I like Abbey Road in PLII.

Mickey: You have perfection about you. Your eyes have music. Your heart's the best part of your body. And when you move, every man, woman and child is forced to watch.

Grooving to Steve Hackett Genesis Revisited II in 88/24 FLAC format using Dolby PL II - Music

Another great album is Alan Parsons Stereotomy, as it was originally mixed with Ambisonics. I use a FooBar2000 plug-in to decode ambisonics and feed my processor via HDMI

My system is optimized for multichannel audio, so these matrixed 2ch approaches sound pretty good. But awesome is anything on DTS-MA on BluRays, God, that's incredible.
