If you want to test the dynamic of your system and also how it manages the deep bass and the upper highs this is a great album, especially the IV movement, Accelerando finale:

The Red Violin Concerto (John Corigliano) by Joshua Bell and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B000SNUMEI/ref=s9_psimh_gw_p15_d0_i1?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=09JJAM8FCZT07ZAKTNNX&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=358549767&pf_rd_i=468294

On the other hand, although it is a kind of dissonant music, holds a rare beauty.
