Room Comments/Treatments: Room is L-shaped, with archways in the back, so there is little back wall. Nulls are an issue but less so after trial and error with speaker & listener placement. No oom treatments, it's the living room. Compromise.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Jazz, Dylan
System Goals/Comments: Sounds fantastic
System Strengths: All the usual audiophile superlatives, it has really come together!
System Weaknesses: Listening room. Lyngdorf Room Perfect does a good job, but irregularly shaped room and practical limits on passive RT are weaknesses.
Video/HT System: Separate

Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: Marantz AV 7005 pre-processor, modified Adcom 535 and 2535 amps

Comments on HT System: Audessey on the Marantz piece really helps
