Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): rock/classic rock; blues;
some jazz & classical.
System Goals/Comments: Extension into frequency extremes, seemless from top to bottom, ability to play LOUD without falling apart, yet not require a twist of the volume to come alive. Prefer sweet side of neutral to any tendency towards rising mids/upper mids or highs. Would accept euphonic colouring before rising highs. Is this a preference for the yin over the yang? If so the Gen 500s are yin like, maybe to the extent of not revealing enough in the upper mids/highs. Duetta Sigs are more revealing, and can sound yangish if the upstream components are not right. So the CDs are better on the 500s, espcially with my cheap player.
System Strengths: As close to my old Apogee Divas as I could find, but has better punch, and can go LOUD and clear
System Weaknesses: Sometimes a wee bit on the crisp side of neutral, but that may just be revealing the source. I prefer a more romantic tube like midrange and highs, but just a bit on that side of neatral.
Video/HT System: None
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Rugby, Skiing, Skate Ski, biking, sailing, music
