If you can identify brake rotor material from the sound spectrum of brake squeal then hats of to you (no pun intended). I'd be willing to bet though that in a true blind test you would bat just about precisely .500 in making the call on the material. One reason for my belief is that brake squeal is more of a function of the pad as than the rotor, cast iron or carbon ceramic.
