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.
System Strengths: See above system goals. Very resolving stereo system relative to any other system I have had prior. Very listenable. Very engrossing.
System Weaknesses: Not the most kind 'tilt' on older, less ideal recordings. Me: 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.
