    if only allowed one song, what would you use to tune your ears to new speakers/rooms??

    i am currently trying to find some new material to use for adjusting my ears, and am getting bored. (have 10 but really want to narrow to 1 for efficiency sake, with others as backups)

    SO... what would it be for you?

  3. I generally pick "Red Rain" off Peter Gabriel's SO album. Daniel Lanois produced. The intro alone has such a great build and variety of instruments that I can get a good idea of where the speakers are. Doc

    Thats a great song to tune the speaks with.One of my favorite choices.
    Also a good go-to is New York Minute from Don Henley's 'End of the Innocence'....
    Another is Sting's 'Nothing Like the Sun'...I like 'Be Still My Beating Heart' off that one.
