Music Used (Genre/Selections): 90% classical
10% jazz, blues, r&b etc...
System Goals/Comments: Natural tonality and dynamics. Coherence and body. Anti "high end" sterility, brightness and bullshit.

System Weaknesses: Low street cred but I couldn't care less about toys for rich boys:)
Video/HT System: None
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Tennis, reading, nature.
