    I haven't used it for burn-in yet, but I played through the music tracks and can easily tell how they will highlight how your system sounds. The included booklet tells you what to look for in each track.

    I found it on ebay for ~ $23 new.
    As it turns out, I was never banned. I was wrong yet again. First Obama, now this. :)
