System Goals/Comments: My systems will ALWAYS cater to the music first. Detail, image, soundstage, etc... are 2nd priority.
System Strengths: Nice, easy to listen to, musical sound.
System Weaknesses: Need a little more power for the Thiels, and could use a hair bigger room IMO.
Video/HT System: Separate
TV/Projector: Insignia 50" 1080P Plasma (very nice set for the $).

Comments on HT System: Fun when it's used. Definitely not top priority.

Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: I've played guitar, bass, drums, piano, etc... for about 25 years. Been recording pretty high quality sound for the past year or so too. It's been fun learning more about the first aspect of sound reproduction. I also like to surf, travel, and work out.
