    i will not use Eagles songs ....the song is good but too much on Guitars, bass is nice but some woofer it look like to strong bass....the only diff is music instrument from system to system...

    Don't forget Tag McLaren Test Tracks.. excelent CD as well hehe!
    EMMA SQ test cd, is a bit different compare to IASCA and they only use selected tracks to evaluate your car system .. thats why u think is a bit diff compare to IASCA cd ... hehe!

    i would prefer Sheffield Lab CD, various songs in the CD eg. Jazz, Classical, Bass, Ochestra, Instrumental, Acoustic, Unplugged and so on. Usually what i do (sound tuning) for my friend is using this Sheffield Lab CD and thereafter their favourite CDs for fine tuning.

    Why Sheffield Lab?
    It was recorded proffesional in Sheffield Lab and from diff diff sound engineer. Also included with the CD Label, the explanation of what you are expacting from each song track. So try this ONE CD which cost about RM45 (8 years ago) and feel the deep bass around 25 - 35 Hz. Probably you can just feel without hearing :D

    Happy ICE

    I bought mine from 1U HiFi retail about 8 yrs back. You can try any other HiFi retail when you go shopping next time. Some may have and some may not, good luck. To be honest, i lost touch with TULEN label for some time, if you know what i mean :P
