Something different...

Yall have certainly posted some classics. I got a new home audio system a while back. While searching for music to test the speakers, I stumbled upon this song.

And these guys are pretty awesome. Even if they are 'Acapulco'. :)
 
I could see where that Long After You're Gone being a good test song for speakers.
It's amazing the quality difference between songs and CD's between artist.
I've got a set of homemade open baffles with Fostex drivers and a store bought set of Bowers and Wilkins in the living room. Just two speakers, left and right plus a sub for my open baffles.
They really shine on female jazz and acoustic music. Not so much for rock-n-roll.
Some CD's sound so bad that I don't even listen to them on my open baffles.
 
I have been listening to this quite a bit lately.

Guess there is a downsize to hearing everything. :) I don't think my room acoustics would lend well to open baffles unless I had some measurement equipment and did more math on crossovers till my head exploded. I do tend to overthink things though.
I have pretty inexpensive speakers. (4) Elac B6 bookshelf speakers, Elac center channel, Elac sub and (2) cheap Pioneer towers that I just can't bring myself to disconnect. They don't sound too bad though.
For the price, hard to beat those B6s.

They seem to be pretty popular with you guys. Ive seen a number of vids here with the long beard dude. They do good music.

RIP Aretha
I used to take a lot of good natured ribbing from my rock & roll friends for my Aretha album/cassette collection but man that woman sang with true soul.
