Great BD too.
Chris Botti in Boston, on Bluray - is a key one that I use as reference, to test
speakers. > One of the key tracks that I use is Emmanuel, playing with Lucia
Micarelli - to test the trumpet and Violin sonic sound, and the imaging. >>

Another track that I use is with Sy Smith, singing the Look OF Love.

This is a good Bluray to test Orchestra, trumpet, male and female voices for
good imaging and soundstage presentation.

Who or Where, is The Way, Truth and Life?

Speakers - MB Quart VS05, Boston VS260, Snell K7
Subwoofer - Mordaunt Short Aviano 7
Receiver - Tascam PAR-200, Pioneer VSX-30

One I really liked was Tricycle. I will be exploring Flim some more.
Ah, Flim & the BBs. After 30 years they are still my go to tracks for demoing dynamic range. I guard my F&BBs CDs like they're part of the family jewels and only play my ripped FLACs nowadays. Those discs are still some of the highest performers in the DR Database, especially Big Notes and Tricycle.

Glad to see you post - a belated welcome to HTS!

I was exposed to Flim just within the past year when Sonnie brought it along to one of the audio shows. Now, I have at least one of their albums and willbe more than likely getting more.

Well, Leonard is on the road home and I will be leaving in a couple hours.

Wayne and I are spending a bit of time today with each set of speakers and applying one more test to each.

I must say - I am exhausted, but it is well worth it. Hope you all like the glut of information that is going to be coming your way!

Thanks for the warm welcome. Been lurking for a long time, mostly in the REW threads.

Those Flim & the BBs discs have been out of print for quite a while, luckily they're readily available on the used market.

Will be interested to see how the Salk SCSTs and the Tannoys did in the evaluation.

I tell ya - Wayne is a bulldog when it comes to this stuff. We finished the additional test on each speaker, and we are already on to the next thing. I am getting tired just watching him go to it!

Yeah it's pretty obvious when you read Wayne's reviews or articles that he is very thorough and either loves digging into the nitty gritty details or is passionate enough about the end result to go through those details that most are not patient enough to deal with (or, probably, both).

Just take a look at his Audyssey investigation! Yowsa!

Aww. Was hoping that the Ascend Acoustics Sierra Tower (RAAL Tweeter) would be picked. Oh well. At least the Salk SongTower SC was chosen.

The Ascend was picked but they did not get the speakers to us for review.

Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.
