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?|
