    If you're an audiophile, you are very familiar with these four chestnuts. They're all famous for their spectacular sound and ultra-wide dynamics.
    1. Lyrita (a U.K. product) This one is the best of the best Lyritas, a label about which has been said "There is, nor never was, a bad Lyrita" 2. The Telarc label needs no introduction. Most telarcs have a very wide dynamic range and quiet surfaces. This particular one, "Ein Straussfest" by the Cincinnati Pops led by Erich Kunzel, Has those dynamics in spades, and then some. This is one of those rare disks where users are cautioned to check their volume before playing, especially if they value their woofers. 3. Jazz at the Pawnshop is acclaimed by audiophiles as one of the best and most real live recordings of all time. Proprius is a small Swedish label that recorded on a budget with the simplest equipment and miking techniques. The results were world class! The performances are mediocre but the recording hits every little "nook and cranny" with real space information. It is like being there. Record no. 4 is another Proprius, an unlikely Organ and Saxophone recording (not too many of those) in splended sound. This one offers something completely different for a brand new listening experience.

      good examples of dynamic records that stand out from the crowd of medicure productions
      Concerning Proprius recordings, they have actually made a lot, you will find them in Sweden, most of them are brilliant in any way most are with native swedish music in superb recordingquality so music wise they are a bit narrow

      Agreed, Rama... It is the sound on these kinds of records that makes us want to own good systems.
