    Any of the Rolling Stones would be great.

    This would get better results in the music section but here goes.

    These are all must haves.
    Metallica Black DVDA
    Queensryche Empire DVDA
    Eagles Hotel California DVDA
    The Corrs In Blue DVDA
    any of the Police SACDs
    Both of the Stevie Ray Vaughn SACDs

    If you have surround capabilities, Beck's Sea Change, Peter Gabriel - Up (both SACD's) and Steely Dan's Everything Must Go (DVD-A) will sonically be the 3 best discs to get initially to test out the 45a.

    Greg,

    Please use the search button...there is TONS of info on this player. There are some issues with Bass Management and LFE channel level that you should know about.

    As for the list of titles, that is up to personal taste, although I will issue one dissenting vote against Metallica.

    I have always liked the album, but in DVD-A 5.1, the cymbals are the most glaring and harsh of any title I own. Could be my rears, my rig, or both, but I literally can not listen to that title.

    The guitar, bass, drums, and vocals sound great, but the cymbals just hurt my ears. Seriously. I have to think that this is just a limitation of the source, but of the 25 or so Hi-Rez titles I have, this is the only one I can't listen to.

    As for a positive suggestion, I highly recommend Yes-Fragile.

    BGL
