|Music Preferences and Comments:|
|Music Used (Genre/Selections):||Blues, Rock and Roll, but vinyl playback has recently opened me up to new genres with the availability and affordability of used vinyl.|
|System Goals/Comments:||Short term goal is to find a good tube preamp with phono stage, or possibly a Mcintosh MX110 Tuner-preamp for a reasonable price in good shape, so I can get some tubes going in my system. Also looking for a better CD player than the Marantz, as the addition of Triangle Ittoh XS speakers is showing me the limits of my digital front end.|
|System Strengths:||Sounds good to me considering the mishmash of components. I am sure it is not the most resolving system, but I enjoy it.|
|System Weaknesses:||Not the quietest (but decent) preamp section on the Mac. Kimber 4VS probably not the last word in speaker cable, and MIT/Monster not the last word in ICs. Strange room shape and space constraints in a 1 bedroom apartment.|
|Video/HT System: None|
