System Goals/Comments: I'm pretty happy with it. I wish I had a bigger room!
System Strengths: Mac it. Revox B-215 cassette deck was the best ever made. Enjoy the MX113 which I recently aquired, amazingly good AM section (sensitivity, not necessarily frequency response)
System Weaknesses: Can't have ideal speaker placement due to space limitations and the wife acceptance factor.
Would like to buy one final good quality turntable. The Gemini is not it, but it filled a current need (transfering 78's so I can use the storage space for something else).
Video/HT System: None
