I tried searching but didn't come up with anything. What are some good songs to test and tune with. Not really bass, but songs with good overall sounds. I've been using the live acoustic version of hotel california, but I'm looking for more options. I used to have a cd with a bunch of good classical joints but I lost it.  Any kind of music is good.

I used to use Enya until I found the Eagles Hotel California. Also I have Madonnas Something to remember cd which has most of her slow songs.

DJ Tiesto - Just Be

Not only is it a great cd in general, but it's a great test cd too....lots of low bass, and the vocals in "Sweet Misery " are high enough that it's the perfect full-range song.

Check out some Jazz on the GRP record label

David Benoit, the Rippingtons, Kim Pencil. Also, the last cd that Steely Dan put out.....

I use the disc "Gordon" by the Barnaked Ladies. Lots off songs with a nice smooth beat and plenty of range to tune with.

the best thing you can tune a system with is somthing that your extremely firmiliar to. somthing that you've heard on a good stereo many times. i use alot of guns n roses use  your illusion stuff because it's extremely musical and detailed. and no one will ever kick your ass for listening to gnr. i also like  kid rocks newest cd kid rock.
