    I know this has been asked before but searching through AK it doesn't seem like it really took off (or i'm just searching for the wrong things).

    I just got a nice copy of the Walker Brothers - Nite Flights (1978), and it really pushed my Dahlquists to a point where lesser speakers would have taped out. and thought it might be neat to see what others use as reference or to just show off your stereo.

    Yeah not searching right, must be at the very least 5 threads a year started on this, end results for the most used.

    My opinion one should use the music they like with a variety of things, percussions, piano, acoustic, vocals. Also music that was recorded and mastered with a lot of dynamic range like Muddy Waters: Folk Singer.

    And then again what is one "Testing" for?
