    Viktoria Tolstoy, "Stations." Streaming from Qobuz is great. However, I just received the CD today and it's amazing - a lot more layers of detail. Great if you like female vocals and jazz. :audiophile:

    I second your well deserved feelings of gratitude to Magico. For me it's a privilege and a daily delight to be able to experience such a high level of musical enjoyment.
