Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Classical, jazz, opera, chamber
System Goals/Comments: Going smaller than my big systems without losing any of the enjoyment. Took some years but, got there.
System Strengths: Looks good, sounds good at lower levels without collapsing or losing detail and sound satisfaction at my average listening level.
System Weaknesses: Will take some time to retrain my senses to not start thinking about this system and my old mega-watt system that filled up a wall. The W70s are neither wall of sound not point source. Do wish the system had better soundstage. The ADS provide that when I want or the music needs it. A compromise but liveable.
Video/HT System: None
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Retired
