Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): I listen to a wide variety of music with my base style being Rock. My preferred Classical is Baroque.

I listen to almost anything if it's good.

Comments on HT System: I find using a quality preamp processor for home theater is just as beneficial to performance as in a music system.

I have found using a quality subwoofer makes a surprising improvement in my surround sound presentation.

I feel too many in the home theater hobby under estimate the importance of timbre matching ALL speakers.
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: collecting & listening to music. exercise
