I don't know about intricacies, but these are the recordings I use to tune my system to...
Fiedler's Offenbach: Gaite Parisienne
Reiner's Russian Showpieces
Steely Dan: Gaucho
Lincoln Mayorga and Distinguished Colleagues
Joni Mitchell: Court and Spark
Any album by Ry Cooder
Ha! I love the living stereo stuff!! Very well recorded. Yes, those are some great examples of well recorded music.
