Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Classical, especially chamber and instrumental.
System Goals/Comments: System must do timbre of individual instruments well and have body and "kick" but also let you hear them sing. Ideal is what a good concert hall sounds like. Choice of music is paramount, so must have LP, CD, SACD and hi-rez downloads.
System Strengths: Well optimized I think given my budget, living space, and listening priorities. Attention to cables, power conditioning, component supports, and choice of tubes has been very important.
System Weaknesses: Sound via USB is not as good as from the other sources. Also, I could probably do better with room acoustic treatments but would need advice. Being a renter limits what I can do here.
