Room Comments/Treatments: None - Just moved into an A-Frame home with tall ceilings and hardwood floors, area rugs and large windows. System sounds great.

System Goals/Comments: True to life sound reproduction, with beautiful overtones and little distortion.
System Strengths: Great sound to my ears, with little up front investment cost. Nice image, solid bass and killer mid-range.
System Weaknesses: Many - Lets just say it's a work in process.
Lots of weak links, but to my ears, sounds great.
Video/HT System: None
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Civil Engineer with a company that keeps me traveling.
