PEQ will shape your speakers' response to adapt to the room. IMHO it can limit how you're used to hearing your speakers sound. When in doubt turn that off, let your speakers be themselves.
Cinema DSP will simulate environments, e.g. downstairs fart chamber in German cathedral (I stole that from someone here), for now leave that alone.
Turn off Virtual anything. Just use Straight.
Some of my preferred test audio: Diana Krall, Stepping Out (Remastered), "Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea." Robert Rich & B. Lustmord, Stalker, "A Point of No Return." (Robert ends the album with a few seconds of pure 35 Hz tone.) Holly Cole, "Train Song." Faith No More, We Care a Lot (Deluxe Band Edition)(Remastered), "We Care A Lot." Chris Isaak, Baja Sessions, "Dancin'.". Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Shaka Zulu, "Wawusho Kubani?" (the end of the track, the entire band is jumping on the floor of the church they recorded in; you ought to hear it and feel it if the sub's up to it). James Newton Howard, The Interpreter soundtrack, "Matobo." John Barry, Moviola II: Action and Adventure, "Pawnee Attack Part I & II." Olive, Extra Virgin, "Falling." John Barry, Diamonds Are Forever (Remastered), "007 and Counting." Biosphere, Autour De La Lune, "Vibratoire." Stars of the Lid/John McCafferty, Per Aspera Ad Astra, "Anchor States, Part 2." Jan Garbarek, The Insider soundtrack, "Rites (Special Edit for the Film)."
