Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Classical, some classic rock, some bluegrass (LP only).
System Goals/Comments: More definition in CD player. Got that with TEAC (esoteric) K01x. System is pretty good already. Some CD players I have tried give more detail but they may lack the dynamics of the Eclipse. If ML 27.5 breaks, will have to fix it or buy a new amp. Want better preamp eventually.
System Strengths: Dynamic, detail, Much more immediacy and detail with Sasha II. Very good tonal qualities. Marked differences in presentation between LP12-smooth and Eclipse-dynamic. Spectrum is good top to bottom.
System Weaknesses: I don't hear a weakness after the Sasha II. It does not have the soundstage or image placement of Sonus Faber Lilium.
Video/HT System: None
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Photography, trains
