I love listening to Western Classical music, especially while playing MMOs. You can just sit back and relax when grinding (especially when D3 is just THAT easy) while the soothing tones pump out.

These are a few of my favorite pieces. I am not ranking them in any order, as I believe you cant really rate great pieces of music that way.

I currently listen to these on the Logitech Z263. I used to have the Altec Lansing VS3251 5.1 and hope to get the Logitech Z906 very soon! Also, I use the Bose MiE2i while traveling and am looking for an upgrade for those.

I use the Youtube Options plugin for Chrome, which resizes my video to 720p and makes the layout much cleaner. I highly recommend it, as it makes using youtube and listening to music much easier!

 

I hope you enjoy the music and do leave me a note if you feel I have missed any great pieces!
