    Not just any vinyl - 12” 45 RPM dance singles that run only about five minutes are incredibly dynamic. Much more so than the CD versions. Have about half a dozen Madonna titles.

    Groove spacing is wide enough to be able to count them. :)

    Really dynamic stuff with a lot of slam sounds best on my rig. My JBL L200's with its compression drivers just eats the piano up and can happily play it all day at ear splitting SPL's and show no signs of distortion. Feed em some Patricia Barber ( Yellow Car 3, or Ode to Billy Joe, or Nardis) and most people would plunk right down in the chair and listen..

    However, dirty guitar, lots of the same voice dubbed over and the like, and the 200's seem to dislike it. Maybe they just don't like crappy sounding recordings!

    SACD at it's best. Incredibly alive on OB's and my favorite is number 3.

    12" singles really cut the mustard,mine are all UK pressings,I haven't heard any US pressings but I believe the UK singles are mastered hot which would suit the medium.

    What does your system consist of? Why does the song sound best on your system?

    Another vote for Telegraph Road, Dire Straits. I also like Odyssey, Dixie Dregs, from What If. Both songs have a lot going on sometimes, a little going on at other times, and a lot of detail and coherence that can be masked by inferior playback. I'm sure I'm not hearing all that is there, but I enjoy hearing way more than I used to hear, and for me, that is the point of the exercise....
