Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Eclectic; 50% classical 50% modern/folk/celtic/blues/bluegrass/etc.
System Goals/Comments: Started life as background music, but it's gained a life of its own. Pilot amp brought the whole thing to life. Atma-Sphere made it sound real.
System Strengths: Excellent tone. Strings and piano excellent. Good deep bass (subs). Great for small ensembles and folk music. Realistic rock music volumes with Atma-Sphere.
System Weaknesses: Not optimal room layout for good sound. Soundstage narrow. Better for rock/guitar/vocals than classical symphonies.
