    Surprised I don't see mention of Sigur Ros on here...amazing acoustic performers that stretch the limits of musical performance. Sound good on my lame stock car speakers, my SDA's open it up to another level, heard instruments coming at me that I didn't even know were there!

    Anyone local to Minneapolis will also be happy to hear that Root City Band's live album is amazing on the SDA's, without a doubt my favorite experience with these speakers so far. Those of you not from the cities that want to enlighten yourselves, there's a rare copy of this album up on eBay, although the scratch is a bummer.

    Depeche Mode's "Violator" CD/SACD is very nice on SDA's along with the self titled Duran Duran CD (often referred to as Duran Duran 2, the one with the couple getting married on the cover). Try "Ordinary World", but the whole CD is nice.

    My response is: If you need 60 seconds to respond in one sentence, you probably should't be evaluating Polk speakers.....

    INXS - "I need you tonight". Pretty phenominal SDA effect. Most of their stuff sounds good on SDA's though.

    Pink Floyd - "Astronomy Domine". Pretty darn good as well.

    Another recommendation-- Kansas: Ultimate Kansas. Instrumentals and stage spread is WIDE...... Kinda shows off the SDA technology for anyone that likes Kansas. Enjoy.

    I don't think anyone's listed this yet, but In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida ought to be a mindbending song on SDA's. I don't have my SDA-1's setup so I can't verify myself, but the song should really work the SDA effect.

    Put in B. B. King's Live at the Regal last night for the very first time with my SDA 1Cs. BY FAR the widest soundstage of any disc I've played. The horns were 15' left of the speaker and the guitar 15' right. Had to turn my head 45° just to get a feel for where it seemed the music was coming from. Unlike anything else I've experienced with the SDAs. Made a GREAT recording even better!

    +1 on this recording. I have this and considering it was recorded live in 1964 it is incredible!!!

    OK.....just listened to Eagles "hell freezes over" You guys gotta put tha dvd in and select DTS.

    Foreigner - Urgent

    Keyboard sweeps in the choruses wrap around my head on my 1.2TL's. At first I thought it was the good ole Canadian THC "filter", but listened to it straight and it still happened (was a little less scary that time around....)

    @Stone of tone this doesn't have anything to do with your post.but I notice in your Rig list you also have Audio Alchemy DTI-Pro and DDE 3.0 w/remote wand.I haven't found a CDP that sounds as good those.One day I hope I will find the DIT-Pro 2. if I don't sell all of my rig..
