List of test tracks

My Test Music...

Before reviewing a product, I listen to all kinds of music, however, when it is time to make comparisons and form final opinions, I use a specific track list. I sometimes mention these tracks during the reviews and, in order for you to be able to reference these tracks, I will leave here my list of test tracks.

Please note that this is not a list of favourite songs, nor do all the tracks sound good (I purposely include certain tracks that sound bad for specific tests), they are simply songs that I have heard hundreds, even thousands, of times on many different systems.

I usually listen to these tracks in FLAC, as local files, although I do use Tidal on occasions. To make it easier to share these tracks, you can click on any of the tracks below and a new page will open where you can choose which streaming platform you would like to liten to the track on.

If you are a Spotify or Tidal user, I will also leave the full playlist on these two platforms at the bottom of this page, so you can listen to the whole list if you want to and follow the list to automatically receive updates if I change any song.

Click on any track to open the list of links, to return to this page, simply close the newly opened page.
