Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Mixed;
about 70% jazz/jazz standards - mostly female vocals. 20% progressive pop/rock/electronic from 70-90s, and 10% classical (orchestral, ballet,chamber, NEVER opera!)
System Goals/Comments: This system is always in flux. These speakers are new to me, and being sorted out, but this is the room where I "experiment", and equipment comes & goes all the time.
System Strengths: Very good dynamics (as you'd expect from Crown)
Highs are better than the bass, but once I get the 'stats integrated correctly with the woofers, I expect this system to really sing!
System Weaknesses: Hard to find the best crossover location & rate, bass can overwhelm, and currently not integrated well enough.
Video/HT System: None
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: 2ch Audio, Sailing, Vintage cars & motorcycles, Recumbent cycling, collecting watches
