Last Update: December 30, 2003 at 02:32:44 IP Address: 62.242.111.235

Room Size (LxWxH): 8.2m x 3.75m x 2.5m
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Jazz (swing and vocal is best), funk, GOOD pop and of course some rock. I don't listen to much classical and virtually no opera. I have soft spots for: Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, Oscar Peterson, NHP, Tracy Chapman, Stevie Wonder, James Brown, Ben Harper, Lisa Ekdahl, Pink Floyd and Supertramp... That proves my wide taste I believe.
System Goals/Comments: I want the music to live and breathe... Triodes and vinyl are some of the main means.
System Strengths: Transients are very good while keeping a smooth sound that doesn't give you listening fatigue.
System Weaknesses: Very lean bass. The room is way too big for the speakers. I hope the coming TL's will solve that. A lot of unfinished projects... The LP playback system is only a primer... It shows some of what vinyl does better, but as a whole is no match to CD at this time. I have high hopes though ;-)
Video/HT System: None
