System Goals/Comments: To achieve the most accurate sound reproduction possible without any compromises.
System Strengths: Incredible dynamics and subtle shading of instrumental textures. Especially adept at reproducing large orchestral pieces as they are supposed to sound. This system plays WAAAY LOUD with virtually no distortion and can cover the full frequency spectrum. Soundstaging and imaging are excellent with unbelievable inner detail.
System Weaknesses: A slight trade off using the PMC's for their size and esthetics but they image amazingly and provide deep bass now that I am not using a sub.
