Test what of your speakers?

Good disc to get would be XLO/Reference Recordings Test & Burn-in cd. Its rather expensive for a cd, but can be found in MWH. Good for general setup, burn-in and check.

Denon Hi-Fi check cd is also a good test cd, not to mention chesky's hi-fi test disc & home theater check disc ( can't remember the exact title, but u'll know when u find it)....... good for listening to the finer points of audiophile listening and HT setup respectively.

For straight bang, smash and crackle dvd, then there is just too many to recommend.
Electronics : Denon 7200, MiniDSP Dirac 88A, Emotiva XPA-5 Gen2
ATMOS Audio : Martin Logan Ethos (L&R), ML Motif X(C), ML Motion 4 (14pcs surround spkrs)
LFE : Dual Rythmik FV25HP & Crowson Motion Actuator
Video : Sony VPL-HW55ES, Stewart Screen Studiotek 1.3
Source : HTPC
Fully automated HT via Alexa, Z-wave and Logitech Harmony Remote Control

Hi Jag,

Thanks for the response. Actually, I am still a newbie in this area of audio. If I want to test the Wharfedale Diamond setup, what do you recommend ?

Hi Duckling,

Once again thanks for your help :) ...

Btw, I am thinking of going down to hear the Wharfedale Diamond Series, was quoted $1059 for the whole package by Par Audio. What do you think of the price ?
