Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): All genres but my collection is weighted toward jazz and literate rock.
System Goals/Comments: This system's goal is to let me forget the system and get lost in the Music. At its best, it is capable of very pleasant surprise.
System Strengths: Maggies sound more like Music than any of the affordable competition I've heard.
System Weaknesses: While it reveals the beauty contained in good recordings, it also reveals how poorly considered most recordings are.
Video/HT System: Integrated
TV/Projector: Sony VPL-HS10 projector.
Speakers (Center, Surrounds, Sub): Just Maggies up front.
Center? Don't like 'mono in the middle'.
Surrounds!? When the video surrounds me.
Sources (DVD/VCR): Sony DVP-NS90V
