I listen to almost anything, except vegetarian grindcore (progressive? - eat my shorts!), Phillip Glass and other annoying/atonal stuff.
System Goals/Comments: Give musical enjoyment.

Offer realistic, immediate but unfatigued sound.
System Strengths: Realism, Bandwidth, Macro & Microdynamics, Soundscaping, simply sound good and engaging.
System Weaknesses: Not much, could perhaps have a touch more detail, the Sub could go a little lower, but who cares?
Video/HT System: Integrated
TV/Projector: 50" Plasma TV (non-brand, very good though)
Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: Non - all audio straight through the 2 Channel system via "virtual dolby surround"
Speakers (Center, Surrounds, Sub): non
Sources (DVD/VCR): Media Server plays Videos from HDD and DVD's, in principle Blue-Ray is possible, but I do not have a suitable drive fitted, plays bluray rips in 1080P gloriously
Other HT Gear: non
Comments on HT System: It gives a big picture (50") to a big sound
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Rejected Knowledge, Science, Philosphy, music, comparative religeous studies, cute girls
