Does anyone know of any great recordings that could be used to show off the performance of your tweeters? Preferably something with alot of fast, hard hitting guitar plucks/stringing? Or a good xylophone or bell track that really shimmers and sparkles?

Thanks! :)

^^if you want the version that i have, just email.. <<4-disc boxset are recorded on gold disc, however i dont really recommend buying it unless you have to have it - in that case ebay is your best friend.

Dang,

I would DEFINITELY recommend Eric Clapton's unplugged album...i listened to it once in a car with raven R1s and it blew me away, the guitar plucks and background percussion were fantastic. Give the cd a listen, for sure

Private Investigation - Off the Dire Straits album, "Sultan's of Swing". It is an extremely well recorded album.
the ending of that song is simply bonerific.

great album too.

I prefer the first section of the song. The past few years of my life I've been a lot more attracted to the full bodied sound of an acoustic. Electric has it's moments to, but it just doesn't grab me the same anymore. The end is pretty sweet though. :D

Sultans of Swing is one of few cd's that I consider a must have.

Agreed. A wonderful mix of everything.

Yes, just a great mix of an album. The only song I'm not real big on is the one that sounds like the beach boys.

dang,
There are bells in the middle of Private Investigation to.

Can anyone recommend a good BB King album? I was listening to the Ray Charles "Genius" album last night and the BB King cut just kicked ass. I'm going to be picking some of his stuff up during lunch.

Dire Straights, Brothers in Arms, is one of the all time best recordings I have ever heard, I love the whole album.

The last track, Tom's Diner, on Susan Vegas Solitary Standing has a very complex layering of different sounds that would really be cool to listen to, not an incredible recording but quite nice. In fact I cannot wait to hear it, will be at least a couple of more weeks if we can average at least 8 hours a dayx2 on the install.

For Dynamic impact Flim and the BB's, anything they have done, synth but interesting, a good system stress test.

A few others I like for various reasons, Michael Ruff, James Newton Howard, Lyle Lovett and his large band, Ottmar Liebert, Alan Parsons Sound Check II has some interesting tracks, ...


Jim Keltner on the Sheffield Track and Drum Record, that is going to be sweet!!!!!!!

I really like Brothers in Arms to, great album. But as far as the quality of the recordings, Sultans of Swing us far superior. BIA does have the better version of money for nothing though. SOS only has the radio cut. :(

Brothers in arms was recorded in Monserate(spelling) in a very small studio, physical size, and you hear things that you would not hear in most recordings. Of coures it takes a very very good system to hear all the little details and frankly most systems will not reproduce them very well, get's rather muttled. I have only had one system that brought them into sharp focus.
