Best test tracks
If you want to see your Devialet try to take flight from the intense bass, try Bummed - Blake Skowron
Try "Way Down Deep" by Jennifer Warnes off the album "The Hunter".
You will be surprised by the bass on the track. I managed to destroy a set of Quad ESL988 electrostats with that track.

Devialet 440PRO CI/ Vivid Audio B1 Decades
Audeze LCD-2 / Audeze Deckard
Cape Town, South Africa
The most dynamic thing I know is "In the Middle Somewhat Elevated", Thom Willems.
Bass - Cosmic Hippo, Bela Fleck

My test tracks got through a range of sounds - voices, clapping, brass, percussion, violin, piano, then acoustic jazz trio and multi-part vocals.
Rarely more than 30 seconds per track

Would include:
Ya Balad - Bachar Mar Kalife (Male vocal)
Winterreise - Mathais Groene (Male Vocal)
Tincian - 9Bach (Female vocal)
OK Chorale from Parallax - Phronesis (piano)
Bach partitas - Ibragimova (violin)
Xenakis - Kuniko (Percussion)
Clapping Hands - Reich LSO (clapping - this is a common speaker designer test)
Reich - Kuniko (Marimba)
Oud Duo - Marcel Khalife (Oud)

Lots of good jazz trios on ECM
Mozart Requiem - Harnoncourt
Nickel Creek - Nickel Creek
Massive Attack just to make sure
250 Pro CI; Innuos Zen Mk3; Claro dual turntable (Koetsu + OL Aladdin Mk2); EAR Phonobox; Wilson Sabrina; Townshend Isolda EDCT speaker cables; Shunyata UK6 + Delta NR
Nils Lofgren - Keith don’t go
Eva Cassidy - songbird
Annie Lennox - Money can’t buy it. *Make sure you crank the volume
Queen - just about anything
Rebecca Newman - Canzonetta Sull’Aria (opera song from Shawshank Redemption)
Tedeschi Trucks Band - Midnight in Harlem

Many excellent testing tracks for bass here, the drivers vibrating like crazy...
