Like a phoenix from the ashes, the What Hi-Fi forum returns!

Three discs, that's a tough one, today

Santana - The best of
Pink Floyd - Animals
AC/DC - Back in black

But that would probably change tomorrow!

Flamenco Sketches, by Miles Davis, from A Kind of Blue. What a gorgeous piece of music! A suitably fabulous soundtrack for staring wide eyed, mouth open, at a lovely new pair of speakers.

We’re so excited to have this forum up and running and to be seeing visitors old and new back here, the home of What Hi-Fi? discussion! For those returning, all your old discussions are right where you left them, frozen in time, all you need to do is reset your password and you’re good to go. For our new members, welcome to the home of Hi-FI Talk!

Here's a rundown on the stuff we have planned for launch week!

🎵Your Hi-fi, Your Music!

We’re looking for contributors for the Ultimate Audiophile playlist! Post a song in our suggestion thread, and we may feature you in the playlist and on our website.

🎧What Hi-Fi? Launch Competition!

We'll have a competition thread open later in the week where you'll get a chance to win something awesome!

🎤Introduce yourself here!

Let us know more about you in this thread, and tell us your top 3 Desert Island disks. Mine are:

  1. Supertramp The Best Of
  2. ELO The Best Of
  3. Baker Gurvits Army - The German Sessions

Yup, 70's prog rock, how cliche. ;)

Looking forward to hearing from you,

The Future Community Team

Concrete Jungle - Bob Marley and The Wailers.

Immigrant Song - Led Zeppelin.

Just Because - Jane's Addiction.

With ever advancing recording quality some music is less worth recording.
I mean Django Reinhardt is fantastic music with poor recordings now sometimes you get poor music with a fantastic recording.

Desert island discs aren't necessarily your faves, right? They're almost just what you could listen to over and over again without going crazy. With that in mind, here I go:

1. London Calling by The Clash
2. Mezzanine by Massive Attack
3. Pet Sounds by Beach Boys

Hi Everyone,

Long time reader, first time poster.

I would say:

Melancholy and the Infinite Sadness - The Smashing Pumpkins - a double album (Is that cheating?)
BBC Sessions - Led Zeppelin (Another double album)
Takk - Sigur Ros

2. AC/DC - The Razors Edge
3. Mollono.Bass - 3000° Showcase

Just to name few. As you can see the list will never end with all the varieties, janres or artists. I just adore good music.
