Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Bop/HardBop and Avant Gard Jazz post 1953 a Lot of Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Cecil Taylor, Monk, and Anything Bill Evans. Baroque and Chamber Music, Stones and More Stones, Zep, Hendrix, A Lot of Ry Cooder Lately, Soundgarden, REM, White Zombie, UnLoco. Varied Electronic, Ambient, Techno, Trance, House, Trip Hop, and Any Other Music That Doesn't Suck.
System Goals/Comments: Extremely Open Focused and Palpable Soundstage at Moderate Listening Levels with Acceptable Dynamic Range. Too Analytical is Not Enjoyable to Me. Just Full Range Output That Allows Me to Enjoy the Music. If it Gets Too Microscopic That Encourages Anaylsis which is No Different From Analyzing Numbers or Statistics. To Me The Essence of The Music is Lost When This Happens. I Can't Let Myself Forget That I am Not an Equipment Lover, But A MUSIC Lover. The Equipment is Just a Vessel to Get Closer to the Music.
System Strengths: Fantastic Listening Sessions With Intense Musical Enjoyment.
System Weaknesses: Its not all Level 6!
Video/HT System: Integrated
TV/Projector: Whats That???
