What Demo Music do you like?


#1

Does anyone have great songs you like to use for demonstrating their system? I like to use “Worrisome Heart” by Melody Gardot.


#2

John Grant: ‘Pale Green Ghosts’, the first track on the ‘Pale Green Ghosts’ album. IMO a great track to demonstrate controlled bass, if your bass is a bit loose don’t try it, it will be a mess. The contrast between the deep, deep bass sounds and almost ethereal vocals are a good test for any system. On a well set up system, the soundstage is wide and deep with great 3D imaging, including a click that just hangs to the front and slight left. The mid range synth that appears after at 1:25 bulldozes its way into everything, an aural delight, wonderful!

Hi,
I like the album “Dawn” from
Magos Herrera, Javier Limón.

It is a very emotional and good music. The record quality is superb.However sometimes this album is not good for evaluating equipment because it sounds good everywhere:)

You can find it in Tidal:

Thanks for the suggestions - anyone else??


#5

I use the album “Convergence” by Malia. It is cd quality, but through the auralic Aries mini it sounds great. You must have A controller bass because the bass in this album is huge. Enjoy

The Norwegian album “Supernatural” from the guitar player Gunnar Andreas Berg is an album i have played a lot during the years. A very dynamic recorded album with lot of air, nice guitars and drums with a superior attack…
You will find this on TIDAL.

I love Larry Carlton & Robben Ford, Live in Tokyo.
It’s the best of the best of the best music when played on my Dynaudio Focus 60 XD :slight_smile:


#8

I love the Mahler Symphony No.1 by Chicago Symphony Orchestra, especially the 4th movement. Very dynamic and all around piece.


#9

I like Dali’s CD Vol.3. All the songs in it…


#10

Heartbeat by Antonio Forcione (Live! album). Great way to analyze the guitar timbre of your system. Also Time by Pink Floyd (especially the beginning of the song) is a good way to analyze your systems ability for separation.


#11

If you like progressive, try Ritmo - Immediate Moment.

Nice bass and stereo effects :smiley:
:notes:


#12

“Woman in Chains” by Tears for Fears: Slow start, stunning voice of Oleta Adams, nice…


#13

“Tin Pan Alley” by Stevie Ray Vaughan
