Room Comments/Treatments: Carpeted, some wall hangings, lots of curtains. Solid structure but with wooden floor.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Eclectic, mostly 'popular', King Crimson, The Eagles, Miles Davis, Fila Brazillia, Dolly Parton, Gene Clark etc. I really like good singers in any genre. Mahler & other orchestral does get a listen now & then, as well as some big bands.
System Goals/Comments: Primary Goal: Not to limit my taste. Enough power to deliver Dream Theater, enough delicacy to enjoy Rickie Lee Jones.
System Strengths: Forceful, transparent, versatile. Relatively unfatigueing. I like music a lot, it's on when I'm home.
System Weaknesses: Cool to cold. Mumbly midbass on some discs. Room treatment would probably improve. I've heard these speakers sound crisper & more controlled in other rooms. Imaging less than perfect, not as dynamic in the highs as I'd like.
Video/HT System: Integrated
TV/Projector: Panasonic 127cm Plasma
Sources (DVD/VCR): Panasonic DVD player, PC.
Comments on HT System: Stereo is fine, room does not encourage more speakers.
