    good SQ songs?

    what are some songs that are really good for testing SQ? i'm looking for some that are recorded very well, plus maybe a couple that are good for testing midbass too.
    thanks-

    Re: good SQ songs?

    My own personal preference that I enjoy listening to is A Perfect Circle. Some songs have a good dynamic, maybe not as much for midbass.

    Another disc is Clair Marlo "Let it Go" by Sheffield Labs this was referred to me by Perry Babin the guy who made the Basic Car Audio Electronics site

    Re: good SQ songs?

    My favorite two are

    Jack Johnson- "Flake"
    and
    John Mayer- "Neon" off his live album any given thrusday(the one on room for squares isnt as good) It has some good midbass in a couple spots and a nice drum solo 7 minutes in which I love.

    John Mayall - Room to Move

    It's a far out song but **** does it have some cripness to it.



    I used to spend a lot of my free time here. It was fun I suppose. Still rocking the 9515 and Better Audio amp haha.

    How's incriminator stuff these days?

    Linkin Park usually have a good mix of beats and drums in their songs.

    thanks-
    Don't let yourself be limited by what people believe 'sounds good!'

    Keep up to date on the newest artists in the fields you like to listen to, and just go from there... Try using launchcast from yahoo to get a feel for some artists you perhaps don't quite know, and if it has potential, check out a CD store and pick it up.

    A lot of it is listening tastes... I love the new Nickelback CD, but it's mastered like absolute garbage... And I love the new Dido cd, because it's mastered quite cleanly.

    I like both types of music, so I can more easily dictate whether or not the recording quality will matter... After all, if you don't like listening to it, it can be clean as a whistle and it won't matter a bit.

    Re: good SQ songs?

    I like to use Nelly Furtado's "Baby Girl" and Billy Joel's "River of Dreams"

    Anything by Dream Theater or Pink Floyd would also work

    Re: good SQ songs?

    Try the new A Perfect Circle album Thirteenth Step, every track melts my ears like butter. And the new Outcast ablum Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, is a great one too, if you don't mind some of the crazy tracks on either disc.
