    Beach Boys - Little Deuce Coupe, Get Around. Crazy good SDA effect!

    Paula Abdul - Album: Spellbound - Songs 1-3
    Will make the old lady all touchy/feely.. Song 4 has a spot in it where I swear she's yelling at you from about 3 ft away to your right and looking down on you ( above the plane of the speakers).

    Depeche Mode - Music For The Masses
    The whole album. After playing Paula and before heading into the BR put this one on... Or just listen to it.

    Sully Erna - Avalon
    Yes, I live in Oregon. No I don't smoke weed but if I did....

    This should be on the Official SDA Playlist. Made my wife sit, close her eyes and listen to this one. Afterwards, she asked why I had her listen to it in 'surround sound' and not in 2 channel ? I just had to smile. Stunning sound stage & separation with my untouched SDA 2a's.

    Listen to some Bill Withers and you'll get the same feelings I believe.

    I played Mr. Withers CD over and over years ago when I was given it by an old friend who made for me.
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    Oh yea, it does!

    I've demo'd a lot of sets of speakers using that song. I let a lot of people know who he is. Also "Use me" makes me groove to it. B)

    I was dating my wife and we split up one night. I heard Bill Wither's song "Ain't no sunshine when she's gone" that night. I took it as a sign and called her up. :D

    This takes you to YouTube video above but also all the other videos to choose from below it. What a talented guy! B)

    I am still working on getting the full SDA experience out of a new to me set of SDA 2B. I have listened to electronic music almost exclusively for the last 30 years. Listing some of my favorites along with some other stuff I have discovered along the way. I am listening to music I am very familiar with only to discover new sounds and effects in almost every track....

    Jesse Cook - The Blue Guitar Sessions, One Night at the Metropolis
    Air - Twentyears
    Nick Warren ‎– Renaissance - The Masters Series
    Sasha ‎– Global Underground 009: San Francisco
    Sasha - Involver series

    I have read through about 75% of this thread and I have seen many suggestions for electronic music. I will finish reading the thread over the next few days.

    Cheers,
    Caleb
