Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Old line jazz (Shearing, MJQ, Dizzy, et. al.), also some of the newer jazz people, especially Pizzarelli. Stravinsky. Old southern rock stuff - Allman brothers et al.
System Goals/Comments: Better stylus.
System Strengths: Excellent timbral accuracy, good imaging, 'that SET sound'. Great rendering of male and female vocals.
System Weaknesses: SET's won't really get the hard rock and fusion stuff right, but the added sub really helps. Hey, it's all a matter of tradeoffs, unless you got a 100K or so to spend.
