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|
