Domo Audio is a new way to buy high-end audio gear. Think of us as your personal concierge service for all your favorite hi-fi brands. When auditioning new speakers or headphones or DAC's, these are the tracks that I always use. You can tell a lot about the crossovers when you listen to how the snare pops. So you'll notice that these tracks are all variations of different drum tunings and samples. From some of the finest works of Art Blakey, Max Roach, John Bonham and Elvin Jones to my favorite cut from ?uestlove — this short playlist has it all. Here is what you want to listen for. How is the tonality of the kit being reproduced? Can you clearly distinguish between the toms and how / where the cymbals sit in the mix? Now dig deeper. Can you hear how the kit is mic'd — and to kick it up a notch — can you identify the character of the microphones that were used in the recording sessions? On the samples — is the low-end tight and full yet not muddy or bloated? Pay attention to the recording styles spanning the different generations. And then — at the end of it all — go back and listen to that spinning piano/ organ solo of Mr. Hayes again and if your mind isn't fully blown, move on and listen to different gear. NEXT.
