Room Comments/Treatments: House is a 1996 year build of only average standard manufacture. 2 sets of a pair of RealTraps - 2 on front wall, 2 on side wall at first point of reflection. Solid 3/4" red oak floors with oriental rug with thick dense pad. Typical 1/2" drywall walls. Speakers are on short wall and are for 'nearfield' use.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Unfortunately, just about all as a "music lover" unwashed. I am less adventurous with contemporary music however as I am still catching up with the music I missed in the last 6 decades (ie, jazz now remastered and on SACD).
System Goals/Comments: Neutrality. Detail. Resolution. Truth, with Beauty. Low heat output and energy use. Owning the media (no subscriptions).
I have 2 other audio systems elsewhere in the house. Both with their own goals in each case.
System Strengths: See above system goals. Very resolving stereo system relative to any other system I have had prior, even just 6 months ago. Very listenable. Very engrossing. Makes me more of an active listener type.
System Weaknesses: Equipment: Not the most kind 'tilt' on older, less ideal digital recordings.
Myself: My hearing is deteriorating (rampant tinnitus).
Video/HT System: Separate
TV/Projector: [All very low key and of little importance to comment about.]
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Besides music: Motown music and cultural history...bicycling...nature (birds and flora)...the nature of mankind (what makes us human). Occupation: on hold due to medical conditions. Trying to use music as therapy - and pray for better days ahead.
