As for classical music, I'm actually listening to Beethoven's 9th at the moment but I haven't added anything to my collection for ages. I'll have a look in the Classical forum to see if I can pick up some suggestions because I really enjoy the smallselection of cds that I dohave.
By the way, I've just been reading yourmoratorium onthe Creek Evo amp. Nice write up! I'm consideringthe Evoto go in a system in my study room with eithera Naim or Rega cd player (and probably some Rega speakers but I'm not sure about this yet).
May I ask what is it you mainly do in your study? The EVO is a beat-driven amp, a worthy alternative to the Nait5i. If you are planning to have it make the music while you are doing work on the desk you could be distracted by its addictive rhythmic timing and not get anything done at all. You may also accidentally cook your accounts book with the increased happiness.
I am also considering owning a Creek again through the improved EVO2. It has added a main-in option this time. Fed with a tubed X-CAN preamp, this could turn out to be a £1k hybrid combo that performs above its station. Desires, endless desires...
If you are demoing Rega speakers, I'd be interested to hear your views on the new RS1 if it comes your way. I am intrigued by its classic Mission standmount driver-arrangement.
Schubert was hot in the Cabin last year. You need to add his 9th Symphony to LvB's if you haven't already.
