    I won't touch that first line, but my thought was a bit different than just a list. I'd like to see the original list (printed in the back of the SDA series owner's manual) posted here, updated and expanded by suggestions from forum members. There would be a link from the list to a review by the submitter (in "Music and Movies") containing their observations regarding WHY (engineering, depth, soundstage, etc) the selection showcases the SDA effect, experience, orgasmic delight - pick your adjective. Blocking the list into genres might also be desirable for those with rather staid musical tastes/interests (guilty).

    IMO the linked list should live here (as a "sticky") in "Vintage Speakers" since it references the same versus music in general. Such a linked list would, at least to me, be a valuable resource in expanding my music library with an aim towards the most compatible selections for a 2 CH SDA rig.

    Ohhhh... that's different... Nevermind...

    Good idea.. Only two I know for sure that Polk rec'd were:
    - DSOTM for showing off SDA
    - Flim and the BB's "Tricycle" (title track) that doro listed...

    The latter was not to show off the SDA effect, but rather the speed and power of the SRS line as the cut has a huge dynamic range and very, very sharp attacks...

    Maybe doro's was the true, official, Polk approved list...

    Does this mean I have to drop my project? ;)

    No, I just made all that crap up....yes, it's an "Official" Polk promo sheet.

    I think you have a good idea BMDP and Tour, it sure could use updating and some fresh material.

    I knew you wouldn't leave out Dee-Lite... ;)

    I thought we'd done this a few times in the past... but only found three instances (at least in a title search)... Good place to start...
    SDA + Modern Music, SDA fans thoughts?
    Best recordings for SDA ?
    Best SDA recordings ?

    BMDP, you gonna take the point compiling the list? If not, I will...

    I've edited the first message in this thread to start the listing. It still needs work, but I've got time.

    Do you agree that we should list the album name (since that's how most people acquire music)? The individual cuts could be written-up in the linked review.

    Officially now that I own a pair of SDA's:

    Larry Carlton-"Sapphire Blue"
    B.B.King-"Blues on the Bayou"
    Natalie Merchant-"Ophelia"

    These three stand out after an afternoon and evening getting aquainted with the "new" speakers.
    The Carlton disc is past jaw dropping IMO.

    Dave

    OOOOPs and I'll remember to thoroughly read the instructions next time.

    Got a pleasant surprise on this one tonight.

    Aerosmith - O' YEAH! Ultimate Aerosmith Hits

    It's a 2 disc set. Very well produced. Really shines on the SDA's.

    (The 24-bit remaster)
    King Krimson-Larks Tongues in Aspic (1973) is outstanding on a pair of SDA's. King Krimson sounds a little like Pink Floyd in some ways. King Krimson has had a lot of band changes over the years
    some good and bad. Larks Tongues in Aspic stands out as some of their best work. Their album "RED" is also very good and is in the same class as Larks. Although I have not heard "RED" on the SDA's yet, but I know it will sound just as good.

    Man i still cant beleive no one has posted ANY of the newer LIVE Allaman Brothers Cd's. One way out is Great. Any of the Instant Lives are even better. Goto the show listen, show is done get a copy of what you just heard. Freaking amazing. on my short span of SDA's i didnt know "true stereo" till i popped in newer live Allmans. If anyone wants to "Borrow" one of these i will gladly ship it to you as long as you do the same in return. Copied straight from the sound board. :)

    Found an album that I had and haven't listened to in a very long time. Pulled it out and dropped it into the player BAM! I was in the studio! I could hear everything from fingers sliding down frets and strings to the breaths being taken by the trumpet and other brass players in addition to a vast sound stage with incredible speration of instruments. An excellent recording worth picking up!

    That recording is:

    Squirrel Nut Zippers -- Hot

    Pink Floyd: The Wall

    Aerosmith: Aerosmith Classics Live! Volumes 1&2
    There's an incedible live Aerosmith that I have on my I-pod. When I played the actual CD's in my room HT was great. Concert was 1987 and released on CD in 1993. Good job with the master over all, and no artifical "fixes" either. Only problem was my overall satisfaction with the particular renditions (as is my general opinion of the band) was inconsistant. "Walk this Way" starts out with Steve Tyler sining happy birthday to some random guy in teh audience. "Dream On" is incredible, certainly better than the remaster they did for "Miracle" (IMHO neither is as aucusticly good as the ORIGINAL master/1st CD master that I hear on a locl classic rock station, but I can't find it in stores/online). "Lord of the Thighs" on the other hand IS better than any of its other incarnations. ;) :D

    Default I wasn't going to do this again,

    because there is just SO MUCH music that is just SO EXCEPTIONAL when listened to through the SDAs it's overwhelming!

    I see a lot of the more known selections listed along with new one for me, so I'll throw out a couple not so well known...

    Anything Deep Forest but two of my favorites are:

    1992 / DEEP FOREST DEEP FOREST
    1999 / DEEP FOREST Made in Japan

    Have any of you lucky SDA owners ever tried Beatle's "Rubber Soul". Superb stereo recording. This is when the Beatle's really started experimenting with seperation. A must listen. Let me know what you think.
