Default Best test tracks for imaging

In a few weeks my first really good set of speakers will be complete. When I test them, I want to experience some great imaging. Something I have to employ immagination to enjoy with my present speakers.

What tracks do any of you suggest for imaging? I'm talking holographics!

Thanks,

Hi David ,

maybe Andreas Vollenweider : Carverna Magica
( under the tree-in the cave )
the title song can also be used to adjust the analog player
(vinyl-version)

Greetings from Germany

Jürgen

Thank you audiotux.

So no one else has had any great imaging experiences?

Something off of Pink Floyd's "The Final Cut," perhaps?

Well, it IS a rather broad question. Any of the old Proprius LPs (Kor, Jazz at the Pawnshop...). Nearly anything on Reference Recordings. Anything on Mapleshade. That'll keep you busy for a while.

Thanks SY

I think Jazz is the key word. In which case, I may already have some good stuff. Even with my (4 letter word) speakers, Eva Cassidy's "Live at Blues Alley" produce imaging.

I'm sure with a fine pair of MTMs that album will sound so real I'll catch myself ordering a drink.

Side Note: If all the EVA CASSIDY CDs are sold before you guys get to hear them, don't blame me for not warning you!

Thanks razz and traderbam,

That's the kind of answer I was looking for. Magic!
