System Goals/Comments: Of my three systems, this is the only when that is currently "done."

Trying to get an effortless sound for hearing throughout the house, that moves your feet!

Got rid of preamp and started piping the Squeezebox straight into the amp. What a difference!

After that, tweaks to power and Teac amp got this system sounding pretty musical. Biggest difference was a dry-ice cryo of the tripath board (surprise!).
System Strengths: Can rock out and play loud volumes without compression. Laid back and sweet enough to keep MP3 radio from hurting my ears too badly. Amp super quiet. Upside of horns (fast, smooth responsive midrange) without the horn "honk."
System Weaknesses: Not a detailed or refined system. Not much in the extremes frequencies, and overall rather dark sounding, but these crimes of omission work well for the some of other compromises I make with the source material (MP3s, streaming internet radio).
Video/HT System: None
