How to position your speakers perfectly.

Best speaker placement tutorial and best speaker placement music?

On youtube there are a great number of tutorials in speaker placement.
Any of these you would especially recommend? PDF manuals link are welcome as well. Cambridge Audio, Cnet, Crutchfield......?

I have downloaded the Sound Liaison DXD sampler "The Visual Sound" The Visual Sound Sound Liaison DXD Music Sampler
as it was recommended to me as being a great speaker placement tool.

Especially the phase coherent One Microphone recordings on the sampler seems excellent for that purpose:
“These guys and this recording just rocks. Pace, rhythm, tone and soundstage are just off the charts. The precise placement of all four of the musicians perfectly matches the photos of the sessions. The balance of all four instruments is darn near perfect. As you can no doubt tell, I am a huge fan of this recording. It is one of the best in terms of recording quality I have ever heard. Of course, and as always, your view of the actual music content may vary quite considerably from mine. Nonetheless, I think we would all agree that this recording sounds sensational. ” from the review in; Audiophilestyle.
I used to have the XLO test CD but have misplaced it, should I reorder it or do you have better recommendations?

This one:
asarose247 and 18Hurts like this.

In A/V reproduction accuracy, there IS no concept of "accounting for personal taste/preference". As art consumers we don't "pick" the level of bass, nor the tint/brightness of a scene's sky, any more than we pick the ending of a novel or Mona Lisa's type of smile. "High fidelity" means "high truthfulness", faithful to the original artist's intent: an unmodified, neutral, accurate copy of the original master, ideally being exact and with no discernable alterations, aka "transparency".

This is one of the very best that I'm aware of.

My audio life revolves around the three dimensional so I get all of these types of recordings that I'm aware of. It's real hard to beat this one.
