Comments on HT System: Extremely pleased. TV set is old but still delivers a very satisfying experience.
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Go to large numbers of live concerts (about 2/month); willing to challenge the status quo, especially about High End audio; my wife says I like to be a troublemaker, so I guess that's my main interest in life after music and audio.
