That takes me to a web page with more test tones than you can shake a stick at.
Which one?

That page is the hi-res tones, so it's the 192 kHz, fourth down. There are a bunch of pages and different test tones. 

I have it on a USB thumb drive and can play it on my laptop no prob.

That file is at really high amplitude - disregard it.
It would cause anything capable of handling it properly problems.
I listened to it on the sh1tty speakers of my laptop and it was easily audible over the music I'm currently playing.

Aha! I didn't want to lead anyone, but my thought was that at -3dB it was pretty hot. You could have peaks that clip. Why it pulses like it does, IDK. Could just be getting confused then recovering—wash, rinse, repeat. 

Thanks for taking a moment to consider it.

I got a Replaygain correction value of -18dB or thereabouts, and it's the first time I've seen one that high.
Hot isn't in it....
