[#1] Your Favourite Reference CDs    
Dear ALL

Which CDs will you use to monitor and judge the performance of a HiFi System?

If you want to buy a new component (e.g. speakers) and you go to a HIFI shop, which CDs could support your judgement within 30 minutes to decide whether it is worth further investigation (e.g. borrow it home ) or just throw it away?

Can you share your favorites list, preferrably with the following criteria:

1) better be a CD format (DVD Audio, Blu Ray spec etc... are great but they are not main stream at this moment)

2) Maximum of 5 CDs in the list (i.e. only have 30 minutes)

3) At least some of your recommendations can still be available in the market

4) What attributes in the playback performance of each CD that will support your judgement?

2) Esther - Esther Ofarim (Original CD or XRCD2) - Human Voice

3) Cantate Domino (Original Proprius CD or XRCD2) - Human Voice, Dynamic Range, Sound Stage

4) Beethoven: Piano Concerto No 5 "Emperor" /Choral Fantasia (EMI German Print, Otto Klemperer) - Dynamic Range, Sound Stage, Speed

5) Rimsky-Korsakoff: Scheherazade (Tosh EMI Japan, Thomas Beecham, Royal Philharmonic) - Sound Stage, tonal balance, Speed

支持一吓先!
小弟絕大多數聽中文流行歌, 所以大部份會用呢一類碟來做判定系統平衡度的工作.
1) 陳潔麗 - 一水隔天涯original CD (音樂簡單可試樂器清晰度)
2) 蔡琴 - 民歌 original / XRCD2 (試人聲, 音樂動態)
3) 陳百強 - 深愛著你T113版 (此CD是小弟覺得在發燒碟外至好聲的, 用作試音樂動態, 音場定位都唔錯, 人聲應該係自然, 唔似用乜乜金咪出黎既HIFI聲怪物專接收口水聲, 整體以自然中性音色為主)
4) 李克勤 - Purple Dream T113銀圈版 (本來呢隻CD唔應該用黎測試系統, 因為聲弱. 但係一套好既系統, 起碼唔應該播呢隻碟播得太衰聲)
5) Lover's Romance Vol.2 日本Sony頭版 (呢隻碟其實好蝦機播的, 如果分析力弱少少既系統會變得很侷促; 系統如果平衡既話, 此碟低音唔應該太誇張. 尤其最後一曲, 高音部份能夠洽到好處咁顯現出黎就最好了)

Thanks KenCheung for the list and the detailed explanations

It is a good list for friends interested in Chinese pops...

It is also good point that your preference CD does not need to sound perfect in every aspect. Instead you should be very familiar with its sound and its shortcomings so as to make the right judgement.

Many Thanks for sharing

Somehow i do not have any 陳潔麗 CD singles, and i do believe she is good singer in the recent years. Let me try if any luck to get this from the market.

Dear KarryWai, somehow i already have all your recommendations, these are great musical pieces!
