    Speaker Imaging test track?

    I'm curious if anyone has run across a downloadable *stereo* audio or video file that tests the ability of a speaker to "image" sounds from different locations. Links?

    Glad you enjoyed it. His latest cd is also very good from an engineering standpoint.

    Best cd I know of for this is rodger waters, amused to death. Recorded in q sound. If you have your speakers setup correct and a good front end it can be amazing

    Pearl Jam's "Ten" really surprised me when I heard it on a decent system. The production is really good and some tracks have a great sense of the recording space.
    Dominic Miller & Neil Stacey's "New Dawn" wraps you in a field of reverb. It's probably a reverb plugin, but it's nicely done.
    I'm not really a big Beck fan, but "Sea Change" has nice depth on many tracks.

    You may, or may not, like the songs but the sonic mischievousness is scattered throughout the album.

    I've never heard the remastered version.

    Shoot me a pm

    Okay, that Yosi Horikawa Bubble track was pretty sweet. Not nearly as good a song, but the fact that he even has a song titled "Beer" makes me like him more.

    Another one is Midori "Bonsai Garden". New-agey meditation music, but on a good imaging system does some pretty amazing spatial effect.

    As far as singles; Madonna Vogue, Yosi Horikawa Bubbles, and Semisonic Feeling Strangely Fine California, where if everything is just exactly right, the train will cross behind the listener.
    This. The Yosi Horikawa tracks are always my go-to. Not just bubbles, but also Wandering. Bubbles focuses more on picking out where specific sounds are, while Wandering tends to be more of a full atmosphere. It sounds very immersive on a properly setup system, and sounds super boring on a system with poor imaging.

    This isn't mixed very well for earbuds.
