This is a list of recordings which I’ve been kind of mentally put together over the years as an audio enthusiast (definitely not an audiophile) that I personally enjoy on a home theatre or in a good pair of headphones. They’ve been found through various means, such as through you guys, through random listening, and most recently, audio reviewers, who often like to quote what songs they use to test new systems.

Feel free to add in a section of your own songs (duplicates are fine), just try to follow the format so the particular recording can be found, Track – Artist, Album (Year). This isn’t so much a “favourite” song list as it is an “aurally impressive” song list.
