    It’s hard to explain in words, except that these towers sound very good. I needed to get a pair of speakers that I wouldn’t need to upgrade from. I don’t know how any other speaker could sound better. One thing I’ve noticed is that I can hear the stereo separation but it seems that there is a speaker in the center also.

    I use Qobuz for streaming through Roon. I also use Spotify for making playlists. A couple friends and I make ongoing collaborative playlists there. I convert them to Qobuz using an internet site called “soundiiz”. That way I can listen in higher resolution.

    I have a playlist that I like to listen to at home that I’ve been checking out on the Ascend Towers because I’m pretty familiar with the tracks and most of them have nice quality sound. Some of them I’ve discovered on my own and some I’ve found through people’s comments and recommendations on various forums. So I’ll share the playlist here. Maybe you all with find something you really like:

    What am I listening to now? Something I’m very familiar with. I’m about to listen to the first few tracks from Genesis - Lamb Lies Down.

    Thanks, will check Bruce Soord out!

    I prefer Qobuz high definition streaming over Tidal.

    I’ve been listening to and rediscovering music from the 1950’s to the ‘70’s and it’s like hearing these for the first time on these speakers!

    Check out Arthur Conley - Sweet Soul Music

    On vinyl,
    Blondie - Parallel Lines
    Ted Nugent - Greatest Gonzos...The Best of...

    And today (5 May), on vinyl,
    Megadeth - United Abominations (remaster) -- Awesome! This album really rocks....

    7 May - on vinyl.
    Megadeth - End Game (remaster) -- very good. Both this and the United Abominations remasters are really good pressings. Very quiet and excellent dynamics.

    A rare, well recorded live video of TOOL in concert with a focus on Danny Carey's drumming. You can see why they call him "the octopus". He's simply amazing. One of the best drummers on the planet, imo.
