|System Goals/Comments:||Have taken a break from my Computer Audio system as the SQ can't begin to compare with my main system. May return once I learn how to improve the sound. Still too confusing.|
|System Strengths:||Wonderful sound stage, 3 dimensional, excellent resolution,|
dynamics, definition, all the usual qualities I look for in a high-end system. My new Esoteric X-05 has made the most significant improvement in my system. Just replaced my Nola Boxers with the Merlins Master TSM. Huge step up. I love these speakers as much if not more than my former Merlin VSM-MX that I had in a former home.
