Beautifully Produced Albums - What haven't I heard?

I'm looking for examples of very well produced and engineered rock/pop/folk albums. Perfect acoustic guitar tones, great sounding drums, clear vocals all mixed and balanced well. If you had access to a super- duper audiophile sound system for an hour, what album or songs in your collection would you immediately NEED to hear through it? Some examples inside: [more inside]

Removing video cross-feed from the audio mix

At a recent lecture, I taped from the soundboard & from some microphones. I meant to record these to separate channels, but I accidentally left it in low quality mode - mono, 22khz. It sounds like video got thrown into the mix. Can I salvage the audio? [more inside]

SoundPlaybackDeviceFilter: I need to play back audio for a specific purpose. Please tell me what devices (mp3 player, sampler, etc.) have worked for you!

I'm looking for something that will be able to play back either an uncompressed WAVE file or that will record an actual audio signal for later playback. It has to be totally shock/shake-proof, and it must be able to automatically stop after every track/file and wait for input to start again. Preservation of sound quality is absolutely essential. If any of you have experience with such a device, please share. [more inside]
