Background: Music for Bang, Baaroom and Harp has long been an audiophile favorite, and it’s one of the iconic stereo demonstration discs from the golden age of stereo. While it’s light pop, the tunes are catchy enough and the soundstage is huge and wide. In addition, the music moves across the room and on one track, you’ll hear tap dancers moving from left to right and back again. It might be lightweight musically, but it’s a treat to hear and a great way to show off your stereo.
