System Goals/Comments: Natural sound, non-digital/solid state , best of tubes without the heat penalty, soundstaging, air, microdynamics, full bodied double bass, extension, natural decay and body on piano
System Strengths: It starts to sound more like music with every upgrade. The journey is the destination after all...
System Weaknesses: It's beginning to become more difficult to name one... :-) - the room probably. The Thorens can be improved upon, sonically that is, being a vintage piece. And I do not have an APL NWO-3.0-GO.
