Music Used (Genre/Selections): Jazz of almost any type and decade; sixties jamming bands; Baroque; Americana
System Goals/Comments: Get rid of these damn nodes that suck on my upper bass... currently looking into bass trap solutions.
System Strengths: Vocals, timbre. Trumpets and trombones sound great, especially now with PWT. Often spookily realistic.
System Weaknesses: Obviously, room dimensions limit soundstage. Near field can be very nice but I'd love to move back sometimes.
