What I am noticing with my current setup is there is a little "busyness" in the high ends when I listen to Rock, that is non-existant when I listen to Jazz/Bluegrass/Country.

Examples of Tunes which are almost irritatingly busy in the mid and high end frequencies

Pink Floyd - Shine on you Crazy Diamond
SuperTramp - Rudy
Moby - South side

These are all very high quality rips... bitrates 1411 wav files and identical in data structure to the samples that sound just awesome.

My question is, Is it just that I am getting greater detail out of my system and it is just highlighting flaws in the recorded source? Or do I need to look at my Amps.. Compared to the rest of the system my feels are that they could do with an upgrade.

Anyway... any and all help is appreciated!
