Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Acoustic jazz from the 50's to contemporary. Miles, Burrell, Jim Hall, Coltrane, etc.
60's Rock and Roll and Pop. Folk (AKA "World Music"). Classical. I like good music any period, any genre, anytime!)
System Goals/Comments: A system that played the most music, most musically.
System Strengths: Musical, natural, and relaxing. You can forget about the system, the audiophile madness, and just enjoy the music.
System Weaknesses: It's impossible for me to be objective. If you're looking for all the typical audiophile thrills, look elsewhere. Soundstage and imaging were not a priority and are not prominent strengths of the system.
Video/HT System: None
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Playing guitar/mandolin/banjo. Family time, walking, meditation.
