Comments on HT System: Main System is reasonably flat to 25hz but I boost it @10Db from 50 hz to 25hz and it drops to flat at 20hz. Not bad but you just can't go smaller in electrostats without paying a price in lower midrange heft.
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Audio, Video, Home Theater, emotional behavior
