Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Everything. (Except anything with Auto-Tune.)
System Goals/Comments: Third system, different concept from other two.
System Strengths: Coherent sound, expansive soundstage. Inner detail that seems to get lost in conventional multi-way crossover speakers. Devoid of peaks or valleys for full-range driver speakers.
System Weaknesses: Not the last word in HF articulation or bass delineation. (But HF more than adequate for full-range driver.) Tends to "shout" at loud volumes.
Video/HT System: None
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Sports- Tennis anyone??
