System Goals/Comments: Looking for a system that gets the midrange right with a detailed top and bottom. The system is not played very loud but needs to have realistic dynamics at a moderate level.
System Strengths: Good midrange.
System Weaknesses: Weak upper bass. Needs a sharper attack and more detailed sustain. Need room treatment to create a wider and deeper soundstage.
Video/HT System: None
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Accountant
