Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Main stream alternative and classic be-bop jazz. Some classical, but lately I dont have the time or attention span.
System Goals/Comments: Current goals are to listen more, get a better chair and do room treatments, as for electronics, I would love to get an I2S or balanced output transport!
System Strengths: Resolves detail like crazy, great mid range and low bass.
System Weaknesses: Doesnt sound stage very well, I guess it cant be helped with the big speakers and big power in a small room
Video/HT System: Separate
