|Room Size (LxWxH):||17 ft x 13 ft x 8 ft|
|Music Preferences and Comments:|
|Music Used (Genre/Selections):||Good stuff, preferably. Somehow I always find room in my day for some jazz.|
|System Goals/Comments:||Enjoy it and forget about hi-fi for a bit. Have done the SET thing - will probably do it again. Interested in SOTA digital and forgotten pro gear that's good value but little time for that at the moment. Still have an incurable yearning for vintage cinema, classic tube items - and quality cassettes!|
|System Strengths:||Most of it has been tested over the long run by folk with better ears than mine. Pretty satisfying and musically pleasing. You know, it's just fun and gets out of the way. The Virtue TWO with the 30V/130W supply is 'silly-good'.|
|System Weaknesses:||Not cheap. Think I would be better off, speaker-wise, with a nice 15" Tannoy system.|
|Video/HT System: None|
|TV/Projector:||None right now. Sometimes use the laptop. We toy with the idea of getting a projector but prefer the social scene of the cinema and a nice glass of wine instead.|
|Sources (DVD/VCR):||My son has an XBOX.|
|Other HT Gear:||Not really. No.|
|Comments on HT System:||Not even going to compete with the local cinema so we don't really try.|
|Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation:||Music. Cycling. Compact Cassette. Art.|
