    Default Official QQ "What's your Go-To Surround Demo Quality DVD-AUDIO"?

    What DVD-Audio do you use when you want to dazzle your friends and family? I'll sticky this thread and it can be used as a reference for other members going forward. If you see a title already listed that you use, go ahead and mention it again. This will build up it's reputation.

    NOTE: You can list more than one title, but put them in an order of preference. Keep your favorite show piece as #1.

    Remember, the main point of the demo here is SURROUND!

    For me it's usually America's "Homecoming" disc - always track one, "Ventura Highway."

    "Love" is indeed the go-to multichannel DVD-A to show off with.

    The fagen disc kamakiriad "teahouse on the tracks" is wild. I love the way production paid close atten. to the format, seperation and use of imageing.
    and I like the magnification album especially "In the presence of" the last track in that group, hits you in the gut with bass. I suppose you could never achieve that without dvd audio

    'Love' is a pretty show off disc

    I also love and would use as a demo disc any of the KC discs.

    For subtle but pure sound quality any of the steely Dan and related discs.
    Cheers Fletch

    I agree with Kal on "musical content". First of all I try to choose music the "subject" will like.
    that said I've used (in order of preference):
    Beatles - Love
    Donald Fagan - Morph the Cat
    Queen - a Night on the Opera
    Eagles - Hotel California
    E.L.P.- Brain Salad Surgery
    Carpenters - Singles (for the wife)
    Jean Michel Jarre - Aero (for over the top surround madness)

    Agree! I try to pick stuff they like and are familiar with. Hotel California seems to fit that bill.
