Hi guys ... So I wanted to ask everyone for some songs & music recommendations, which I can use to test out some speaker setups with .. You know, to test out the overall audio quality and 'feel', their frequency ranges, and everything else in between ...

Songs will be preferred, as they are easier to test out in showrooms .. Although, do note that in the home theater room I'm trying to setup (see my other threads), I primarily will only be using it for movies, tv shows, and games .. music will be rarely played there ..

Two that I use for that purpose are the CD "JAZZ" by Ry Cooder, and the "SHOWCASE" CD by the Minnesota Orchestra.

Those have tremendous dynamics, a wide range of instruments that are challenging for a system to reproduce, and solo voice tracks on the Ry Cooder album that are good for tests.

Another Ry Cooder album that is excellent for testing is "BOP TILL YOU DROP", which has some classic R & B material from the 1950s that are gems (lots of electric and bass guitar and multi-layered vocals).
