Is that enough?
System Goals/Comments: The 'Casita' is a small (16' x 22') studio attached to the main 'Casa' where I'm trying to get a decent Vinyl, Tubes and Horn system going. Lots of windows on three sides(as a proper studio should have) so it's a lively space. Horns help. Need some heavy curtains but a bright, lighted space has it's own attraction.
System Strengths: Lots of vinyl, lots of tubes and lots of horns!
System Weaknesses: Still work to do, but getting there.
Video/HT System: None
TV/Projector: Yer kidding, right?
