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! :banana:

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

'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.

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)
