5-0 out of 5 stars A Classic
I bought this when it first came out. I used to surreptitiously put it on (with volume set high) when I had people over to my apartment. Amidst the conversation they usually wouldn't notice the relatively quiet outdoor noises, then suddenly an airplane would roar overhead shaking the walls, and they would be startled and burst out laughing. It was a pretty nerdy trick but fun.

5-0 out of 5 stars Twenty years later
Bought this when it came out in 1983.Now, twenty years later, it's still amazingly enjoyable.Back then, when almost nobody had heard of Compact Discs, I'd blow their minds and their socks off with this disc.Today I listened to it for the first time in years and it's such an odd, interesting, creative batch of sound effects, songs, and experimental stuff -- not to mention some good sound-system-checking material.There's real music here and all kinds of other bizarre and interesting things.And it's not skimpy on quantity either.A true original, a true digital antique, and still great!

5-0 out of 5 stars The Digital Domain
I purchased the original CD when it was originally released and played it on Sony's first CD player, the CDP101. To hear the water trickle, you have to turn the volume up quite a bit and when that Jet flys by, the whole room started shaking and the windows rattled and I thought for a moment, a real Jet had just flown over my house! Unbelievable to say the least. A must have for anyone who wants to test their audio system. They should have put a warning label on it! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A must have
A good CD to have to gauge the ability of one's system. A must have. It was one of the best CD made based on the available technology at the time.

5-0 out of 5 stars Zoooom!
I have 9 test CDs and this is one of the top two. It has many of the basics that you would expect (see track list). The tracks with people walking around the room, especially for depth, offer unique tests for your sound system. If you want to test your dynamics (you are warned!), turn up the racetrack so that you can hear them talking, then watch your system as the car races by (you are warned again!) -- wow! If you do not have a powerful amp (i.e., low distortion at high power levels) and speakers that can handle it, do not try that at high levels (you are warned for the third and final time!). ...

5-0 out of 5 stars From a person who knows!
Over the years, I've bought a lot of test Cds.I thought the creative peak had been reached with the 1992 release of The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test CD from the fine people at Crotchrot Ltd but boy was I mistaken.During my nightly bubble bath I popped The Ultimate Test CD in my player, and I was swept into dimensions I had only read about in Star Trek novels.Bravo! ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Try something else.
My friend got this CD (note it's a CD) so if you want to accurately set up a Dolby Digital/DTS system this is not the way to go.If your a beginner or don't really care how your set up sounds then go for it.Everyone else should get Avia Guide To Hometheater or better yet Digital Video Essentials, both sold right here on amazon.com.

1-0 out of 5 stars Nightmare !!!
Careful!!! IF you are looking for a pure music and video clips to check your latest dolby HT - this will be a nightmare for you. This CD is simply gives wizzzing sound through which you can check all the channels. It wont be helpful if you are using dolby digital. It is good only for old dolby pro logic systems. If you are having DTS decoded etc... this CD will be an expensive toy.4-0 out of 5 stars Useful.... but you really should get a sound level meter
..to go along with it. Otherwise you will be making a lot of ad hoc adjustments which won't make a meaningful difference when you listen to real music. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Brilliant Modern Opus
"Demonstration and Test CD" is, quite simply, a breakthrough in modern experimental music. From such magnificent movements as "Pneumatic Hammers" to the ever-gripping "Explosion", this is one work of modern music that will be studied in the universities and played in the concert halls of the future. ...

This is one of the most comprehensive of any test CD's I have ever bought. This can be used for anything from aligning tape head azimuth to speaker frequency range. Also good for testing noise levels of either your cd player or amplifier/receiver.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars It is a very good disc
Damn good recording or sheffield lab, with phase detection sounds.

5-0 out of 5 stars Saved me $315.00
I purchased a nice pair of speakers recently. Went through the pink noise setup on the reciever didnt really notice a problem. My Imaging was a little unstable but I figured the speakers were about $650.00 a pair so I thought to myself well what should I expect at that price? I purchased this CD and discovered that at 10Khz my front left speaker had a problem with the crossover. I went back to my retailer took the problem speaker back. Ended up replacing both of them with the same model speaker. My problem solved. With a little work with my trusty SPL meter and this CD you would not belive just how well $650.00 speakers can perform. Imaging is great. The overall musicality of the system has benifited a good deal. A word of advice if your going to by new set of speakers bring this CD with you. You wont regret it.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must to setup your (Sound Quality) vehicle.USAC!!!
