Pink Floyd – Wish You Were Here (1975)

A classic for every audiophile. Following on the global success of Dark Side Of The Moon, Pink Floyd pays tribute to its first charismatic leader, Syd Barrett, with a concept album in the form of a space-time journey. Wish You Were Here combines classical instruments and synths in an impressive communion. Hovering and dreamy, this masterpiece deserves the best sound quality.

Daft Punk – Random Access Memories (2013)

Random Access Memories is a celebration of the sound of the 70s. The French duo recruited session musicians to perform live instrumentation in order to limit the use of electronic machines. The album features could not be more eclectic with Giorgio Moroder, Panda Bear, Julian Casablancas, Todd Edwards, DJ Falcon, Chilly Gonzales, Nile Rodgers, Paul Williams, Nathan East, and Pharrell Williams. The final result is impressive, you must hear it in Hi-Fi!

Ludwig van Beethoven, The Symphonies / Karajan (1963)

Herbert von Karajan recorded between 1961 and 1962 the first integral of Beethoven's symphonies in stereo. Its label, Deutsche Grammophon, supports this titanic project and enables this technological innovation. The result is striking: the quality of this recording propels us into the heart of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.

Miles Davis – Kind Of Blue (1959)

Kind of Blue is considered by many critics as the best jazz album of all time and Miles Davis' masterpiece. Recorded on March 2 and April 22 (1959), at Columbia's 30th Street Studio in New York City, this album has considerable influence on jazz, rock, and classical music. Feel the magic of this album in Hi-Fi!

Michael Jackson - Thriller (1982)

Obviously, if we have to keep only one Michael Jackson album on a desert island, many would choose Thriller! With the help of the legendary producer Quincy Jones, Jackson released an album where "every song was a killer".. and he's right! Thriller explores different genres including rock, post-disco, funk, and pop. An iconic album to enjoy in Hi-Fi quality!
