Ana Caram: Sem Voce (The other side of Jobim)

Bjork: Cocoon (Vespertine)

Diana Krall: My Love Is (Love Scenes)

Madonna: Die another day (OST)

Tool: Eulogy (Aenima)

Those are five in alphabetical order, among too many songs from those same performers, and also from many others not listed.

Every time I upgrade my gear, I run Leonard Cohen's "The Future" through it.

It's one hell of a record, which rivals DTSOTM in dynamics and soundstage, but with more detail and subtle studio ambience, which is audiable only with really good gear.

It's by no means universal listening test, but if I can count backing vocals, cans are good.

Journey - seperate ways
