Default What does the average DIYer listen too these days?

This may sound stupid but i would like to know what kind of music you guys are listening with all the kit you are making, i have a feeling that my taste in music is so far from what the majority here would listen to that the kit here would not suit me. What does the average DIYer listen to these days????

I listen to jazz, some classical, rock, anything that is dynamic and percussive. Stuff that gives a true measure of an audio system. Dave Mathews, Chicago, Natalie Cole etc. You'd be suprised at what old heavy metal sounds like through a good system(AC/DC, Scorpions, Kansas, Foreigner). All music can benefit through the use of a properly designed system.

Mostly newer rock, although I listen to some newer orchestral as well. But of course, if I hear something I like, naturally I'll listen to that too.

I also listen to electronica occasionally, mainly to see how my sub can keep up with the mains.

I agree about Dave Matthews Band.
I tend to go for acoustic music if possible.
Also a total variety of global music:
- Cuban
- Celtic
- African

One of my favourite "system testers" is "The seduction of Claude Debussy" by The Art of Noise...staggering!!! I read somewhere that some guy spent 10k upgrading his system to get the most out of this CD!

Does anyone hear listen to stuff be Default, Mushroomhead, Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Hoobastank, Incubus, Korn, Limp Bizkit, Silverchair, Cold, Superheist, Staind, Sevendust, Adema, Slipknot, Rage Against the Machine.

All these bands contain great songs to test out our system, they are often overlooked for reference songs due to the unwillingness of the public to listen to them. Ask me for reco's on these bands and i could tell you 3-5 songs for each that can test dynamics, agility, bass response, just plain excitement value and just brute power.


Ask me for some songs and i will open up to you a new world of music.

Punk Rock: A loud, fast and deliberately offensive style or rock music.

And I also liten to Ska and punk/ska, I too doubt there are many that share my taste of music here, oh well ...

ur from canada so i guess ur into Sum41, get your hands on SugarCult - Stuck in America, 28 Days - The Bird, and the ultimate punk rock song of all time, Lost Prophets - Shinobi VS Dragon Ninja.

You are not alone in your punk rock.

I am also fairly unique in that I only like a small number of songs. I must like the skill of the musicans as well as the quality of the lyricism, with a message that must resonate with my spirit. My favorite song now is the Ashley Cleveland rendition of Gimme Shelter.
