Jazz (Miles, Wes, Coltrane, Metheney, etc)
Classical (Mozart, Bach, Nina Kotova, etc)
"World Music": lame marketing jargon for anything white teenagers don't buy (Habib Koite, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan)
Other Good Stuff (Loreena Mckennit, Dead Can Dance, Ani Di Franco, etc.)
Blues (don't like much, but I do quite like Skip James. Yes, I heard of him in "Ghost World." Great movie. I like Jimi's and Zep's blues tunes.)
I will add stuff as I think of it. I don't like muzak or country. Occasionally I will like a rap song, but not too often.
|System Goals/Comments:||Get a better phono setup. Maybe Rega? Dunno.|
Get more albums I really like first to justify the above expenditure.
I like to get lost in the music, If I find that upgrading facilitates this, I will go for it.
|System Strengths:||Got most of it for half price or so. :)|
It sounds good to me, but I haven't heard a great many worthwhile systems. Maybe I just don't know what I am missing.
|System Weaknesses:||Turntable stands out most!|
The room is less than ideal - not much room leftover with my bed in there.
|Video/HT System: None|
|Comments on HT System:||Got Better things to do.|
|Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation:||Swimming, Hiking in nature, yoga, live music (mostly classical - no cigarette smoke!)|
