Traditionally, we tested speakers over four categories - CD, MP3, movies and games. But seeing that the Yamaha TSX-130 isn't a pair of proper speakers per se, and users likely won't be using it for movies and games, we’ll be restricting our tests to CD and MP3 testing. Basically, we want to look out for the TSX-130’s musical sensibilities. Hence, we’ll be playing a variety of different tracks to see how the speakers would perform across different genres such as acoustic, jazz, orchestral and trance.
Of course, different people have different musical and sonic tastes. Some are bassheads while others are treble freaks, so your preferences with speakers may vary.
The complete list of testing material is as follows:
