I didn't know about Jennifer Warnes so this is an incredible find. 'Path Down Deep' on a similar collection (The Hunter) is about as low as anything I know.

There's a YouTube video by Hans Beekhuyzen about Pi Power Supplies (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_i8UTa4rw4) and he prescribes a Bob Dylan track, 'Man In The Long Black Coat' from the collection 'Goodness Mercy', that shows up PSU contrasts. I was suspicious however shockingly could hear the distinction between my standard Pi supply and an old yet great direct supply I have. I'll currently be building a littler, increasingly present-day direct supply for my framework.

I have a playlist on Spotify. Of course I use their "Very High" quality setting, 320kbit/s. I've been demoing $50k+ speakers (Wilson, Magico, Focal, Alsyvox). I haven't done a head-to-head between Spotify and the "audiophile" services yet, but what I've heard using Spotify is excellent.

I only use music I love. My whole list, currently 143 songs, is here: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/1WoNn ... MDHBGZHHpA

A few of my essentials are:

Dreams - 2004 Remaster - Fleetwood Mac - Rumours (Super Deluxe)
St. James Infirmary (Gambler's Blues) - Louis Armstrong - Satchmo Plays King Oliver
Pipeline - Bill Frisell - Guitar in the Space Age
Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley - Grace
Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
Avalon - Remastered - Roxy Music - Avalon
Bird on a Wire - Jennifer Warnes - Famous Blue Raincoat: 20th Anniversary Edition (Digitally Remastered)
Come Together - 2019 Mix - The Beatles - Abbey Road (Super Deluxe Edition)
Fly Me To The Moon (In Other Words) - Frank Sinatra Count Basie - It Might As Well Be Swing
Flight of the Cosmic Hippo - Béla Fleck and the Flecktones - Greatest Hits Of The 20th Century

It may sound stupid, but I like to use Battlefield 1942's intro music, it really has a nice range, although it was difficult to find a quality recording.
