Detail, detail, detail
|System Strengths:||Vocals are absolutely incredible. Wide soundstage. Tight bass.|
|System Weaknesses:||Imaging. A bit difficult to pinpoint sources directly in the middle. Haven't really repositioned speakers after getting the projector.|
Response was a bit bright, so I use the 1.2 Ohm resistors on my MG3.6/R.
3.6s don't quite make it all the way down (velodyne sub for supplement on HT).
