Until we have 5.1 mixes of all/most of Roxy material (on blu-ray please), stereo will have to do.

I usually listen to RM on a proper stereo (through speakers). But even so, the occasional stereo mixes offer something extra (more noticeable and perhaps appreciated thru headphones).

A few that come to mind are:

Sea Breezes, Mother of Pearl, For Your Pleasure.

Any faves or noteworthy stereo left/right channel trickery?

Listen to the last cymbal at the end of Lover in stereo, it does an orbit of your head.

I have recently started listening to all Roxy's albums on headphones - I am enjoying them immensely as you get to hear some detail that is not always apparent when listening over speakers. When you go back to speakers you then can't stop hearing it.

The multiple saxes on 2HB is an example but Siren sounds great - loads of goodies to discover - the mix is amazing
Clavinet, organ pianos and multi saxes on LITD
Some piano riffs on Whirlwind in the verses - there's a lot going on
The swirling synth strings on BEB
Three guitars in the Nightingale intro
Just the bass playing
A synth run in Nightingale at 0:57 is repeated
Loads of violins in the breakdown and onwards in Nightingale
Piano trills in SF after the band comes in
Ferry goes from right to left just before sax comes in during SF

I could go on but will leave you to your own big eared listening
