The remastered Dark Side of the Moon is great. That crescendo at the transition between Speak to Me and Breathe is worth the price of the CD all by itself.

I don't have anything that will play SACD so just listening in stereo so far (it's a hybrid).

Bridgeman - The SACD is fantastic.

I picked up the AudioSlave CD last night -this really gives my system a workout, great 'album'.

There’s probably a few dozen more in my collection that are pretty good recordings not on this list, and this list certainly doesn’t encompass my favorite groups or albums. These are the ones that just seam to sound good to my ears……IE: no white noise, crappy mix or too much of one tone. For example, ACDC and Breaking Benjamin are probably my favorite rock groups, but they just don’t sound all that great on my system.

Ten Years After – A Space in Time (outstanding recording considering it was mixed in the 70’s)
Steve Miller Band – Number 5
Joe Wash – But Seriously Folks
Audioslave – (the base will rattle windows!)
38 Special – Drivetrain (their latest, not their best, but a good recording anyway)
Sarah Mclachlan – (shhhh, don’t tell anyone I listen to her)
Kenny Wayne Shepard – The Place You’re In (his best yet, IMHO)
Alison Krauss and Union Station – (I know this isn’t rock, but they sounds so dam good, I had to list them)
Mark Knopfler – Golden Heart
Trans-Siberian Orchestra (Hey! It’s Christmas, and they all sound incredible)
Evanescence – Fallen
Collective Soul – all of them
Hoobastank – The Reason
Arosmith – Toys in the Attic (remastered)
Staind – all of them
The Darkness – A Permission to Land (I’m not a fan of this group by any means, but for some reason, this particular CD just makes me want to party! Plus, it is a really good recording)

Mike, I am a huge AC/DC fan also. Although I agree that most of their recordings are not "top notch", they are far from terrible. Unfortunately, their "weakest" cd is their best sounding - Ballbreaker. Hail Caesar (track 7) is a standout. Also, try the "Live at Donnington" DVD. It is very well done.

One of my favorite CD's (although not technically rock) is The Commitments Soundtrack. It is so clean and dynamic, you can't help but play it loud.

bigjohn -- it's nice to see another System of a Down fan. I really need to buy some CDs (mine were all stolen) to test this system out, and I think this thread will be just the place to look for CDs

btw, one of my favorites right now is Billy Talent - Billy Talent but the recording is rather bright. (a shame)

lexxen- oh yeah man.. i am a big SOAD fan. i saw them about 5 years ago in texas stadium. they were the opening act at the Texas Jam show. they were almost unknown at that time, their first album had barely been out a year, and i went to the show not really knowing anything about them. needless to say, i left the concert a big fan. then, i got to see them in austin at the music hall in spring of 93. it is a smaller venue, about 4000 capacity, and it was great. you could tell their stage presence had greatly improved, and their sound was much tighter. i managed to ride the pit circle to a good spot up front and camped out the entire show. really awesome. if you get a chance to see them, dont miss it.

rumor has it they are coming out with 2 albums in 2005.. i wait with great anticipation..
