"This is an unusual and useful disc, made all the more helpful to the newcomer by the information sheet that is available to download from the IsoTek website. This tells you what to do if the results do not tally with those that the voice tells you should be audible, which is always the tricky bit and makes this a set-up disc proper and not merely a demonstration of what the system can achieve. 



"They range from Bach's 'Toccata and Fugue in D Minor', to 'Tiny Island' by Vaquero, recorded in a church, and involving a rainstick and a steel guitar. I found this disc to be well thought out and practical in the track choices offered. Another must for the toolbox! TB"
