A few readers asked us for a playlist of our favorite test music. And of course, we love to share. It is also a very logical request, because the used tracks largely determine our impressions. That’s also the reason you’ll find a lot of genres in this playlist. We hope you will find some gems in the Alpha Audio Test List!

Feel free to leave suggestions under this article. We are always looking for some nice tracks / music!
For your information: not everything we play is on Tidal. Think of Rammstein (yes… we play that too), Kruder & Dorfmeister, older work of Mumford & Sons and so on. We try to find as much as possible. But the fact is: not all music can be streamed online. That’s why we still cherish our nas-drive with flac-files.
You will see that the test music differs per author, but that there are also very different genres. Acoustic, electronic, metal, vocal, orchestral, blues, jazz… …everything. This to get a good all-round picture of the equipment.
Ideally, of course, a system plays everything perfectly. Reality is different. You can also read that in the reviews.
The Alpha Audio Tidal Test Playlists
Below you will find a list of test music for each author. This will give you an idea of what – per author – is being played. The first list we share is by Jaap Veenstra. The other lists will be published in this article.
