    Good songs/albums for bringing out speakers

    I just got a new receiver and I can finally take full advantage of my speakers. So far Clapton Chronicles I think brings out the speakers best out of all my CDs. Any other suggestions?

    SRV- Tin Pan Alley from Couldn't Stand The Weather...one of the tunes that made me buy my speakers.

    Bob James- Grand Piano Canyon
    Buena by Morphine
    Anything by Carl Filipak....Geetar teacher from Baltimore


    Iff your looking to test Bass...try the soundtrack to Passenger 57 or any Stanley Clarke.

    Anything by Husker Du, The Monkees or Artis the Spoonman.

    I like:

    Stabbing Westward, Darkest Days
    The Nine, Native Anger (those two are both HDCD)
    Einsturzende Neubauten (sic), Silence is Sexy
    Nine Inch Nails, Broken
    Friends of Dean Martinez, pretty much anything
    pretty much anything produced by Steve Albini

    But then again, a lot of that has to do with familiarity.

    If you have a 5.1 system with DTS, I really like Steely Dan's Gaucho DTS-CD as a demo disc. The bass and sax just jump out and sit in your lap.
