System Goals/Comments: A basic system for casual listening at low volumes which still remains musical.
System Strengths: Cheap and meets the WAF. Preamp and amplifier are top quality and far exceed the speaker but came from a prior system and were paid for a long time ago.
System Weaknesses: No vinyl. Speakers are adequate mid-fi but lack the realism of my other system (Magnepan MG-3.7i)
Video/HT System: None
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Showing dogs (Havana Silk Dogs), surf fishing, bicycle riding, photography, NASCAR, violin (this is more like torturing the cat than making music), woodworking (turning perfectly good wood into sawdust).
