I agree. Heard it first through a regular TV for a couple years. Loved it then. Sent tingles down my spine the first time. Then I got my first stereo receiver with crappy speakers, and was blown away again.

Then they had it in UC4 for the crash mini-game, and playing it through a modern receiver with high-ish end speakers was practically other-worldly.

Can't think of any other start up sound which would have such a lasting impression over 20 odd years.

I think the PS1 is still the most iconic startup sound.

Dreamcast for me. It's got such a relaxing sound to it.

The startup sound for the Sega Genesis will always be best to me
