Inspired by the "Ok Computer" thread, I see that a number of people have favoured tracks with pronounced bass that they use to evaluate equipment and set up. I thought it might be interesting to have a thread where people could offer suggestions.

Perhaps these tracks could be itemised according to whether they:

1. Reveal bass clarity and articulation

2. Present bass slam and impact

3. Present very deep bass

Obviously these are not mutually exclusive categories.

And perhaps this thread should be in one of the other forums. But it is intended to help evaluate Meridian equipment and setup.

Eminem - The Eminem Show - Without Me

Very heavy bass.

Edit: I think this is a great idea and something for the Wiki once we've agreed the categories and "scoring system".

I would go for Suzanne Vega's "headshots" from 9 objects of desire - deep bass line together with kick drum

enjoy

"The Sad Bag Of Shakey Jake" by "Humble Pie". Before I had Meridian Kit, this track was unplayable ref bass. Of course, now its no problem and a great track from Steve Marriott.

GIK monster bass panels, rear wall. QNAP TVS 471i3. Roon into DSP5200SE via 218 zone... (Thanks Russ) Explorer 2. Bluesound Pulse 2 and Mini. 596v1, 518, Foxsat HD, Sony BDP, Pioneer 5090, 2 Chromecast's for LRB videos.
My F80 is in repair...

Bran Van 3000 - Everywhere (album version)

20 seconds in, 30hz bass at -24dB.

A good test of in room bass resolution/response.
