|System Goals/Comments:|| |
imho music is a communication device. Its primary function is to transmit different emotions from one people to other. The most important task of the system is to transmit those different emotions as honestly as possible.
|System Strengths:||Axiom 80's. No crossover, no overall feedback in the amp. Attack, presence and rythmical coherency. Sense of 'being there'. incredible stereoimaging. Old and live recordings, classical music.|
Bass reproduction and its natural combining with mids.
Mono reproduction, while listened with only one loudspeaker, in the corner.
|System Weaknesses:||'Axiom 80's late night show'. They have a very high air guitar factor. That is sometimes annoying, as if watchin a three-arena-circus instead of listetning music. Suits some music genres slightly better than others. Also, they are hanging judges with poor recordings and associated equipment. |
|Video/HT System: None|
