Exit Music on OK computer is an excellent test bed. It’s got everything, vocal subtlety to hard charging rhythm. On most systems (even many headphones) I find this track can sound boring,but on the right system the change tempo at 2:30 should be impactful and exciting.
When I demo’d the PMC 24i’s they captured this better than any other speaker I’ve heard. The vocals which can sound thin felt life size and the drums kicked hard like they were in the room.
I still regret not buying the 24i’s ahead of the 23i’s on the basis of this demo alone. Tempted to buy them.
