    the new SACD of Dire Straits- brothers in arms. The redbook CD only layer is staggering, let alone the SACD layer.

    KD Lang- Ingenue

    Donald Fagen- Kamakiriad

    The Chesky stuff ime sounds a bit cheesy and a bit too demo-y and false and doesn't sound like your standard CDs. But whatever floats your boat :)

    sorry...redbook means the standard CD layer. The SACD has standard CD layer, SACD stereo layer and SACD 5.1 layer :) Its called a SACD hybrid disc as it can be played on CD players and SACD players.

    Sorry for any confusion

    I would not use a demo disk, these can flatter almost any system and do not really give a 'real world' view. Take some discs which you know really well and maybe some where the recording quality is poor. A good system should still allow the poor recordings to sound great

    I would describe a reference disc as one that you know extremely well.
