Just to be clear.
I am 50% music and 50% movies and really get into my 2 channel listening with pure direct audio and flac, and love it.
I hate over compressed rock/bad recordings, my listening habits are very broad with a wide range of artists: Here are just a few off the the top of my head:
Dire Straights, 3 doors down, Dream Theater, Kid Rock, Molly Hatchet, Disturbed, Elvis, Jennifer Warnes, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Stevie Ray, The Cars, ZZ Top, Steve Winwood, Yes, Asia, Rush, Kelly Sweet, Steely Dan, Alan Parsons, Barry White, Lee Ann Womack, Bee Gees, Phil Collins, Fleetwood Mac, Metallica, Queen, Elton John, Kansas, Peter Gabriel, Three Dog Night, James Taylor, Sick Puppies, Chile Peppers, Five Finger Death Punch, Seether, and did I say " Lady Gaga"
Darn it, I wish I didn't say that!
