Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Classical/Female jazz vocalists
System Goals/Comments: D5 to SE? Or go SACD, no idea what to do yet, so I'll do nothing because I'm good as hell at it.
System Strengths: Good soundstage, liquid mids, does large scale classical well.
System Weaknesses: Have to move those heavy speakers each time I get serious about listening. Not enough LED's pulsing with the beat of the music. I'm sure there's a few others, but if I admit it, then I'd have to start doing something about them.

Comments on HT System: Dedicated HT room, 18X14X11, Everything (TV, speakers, equipment) built in with access to rear from another room, Lights and fan remote controlled, Large leather couch and ottomans seat eight comfortably, sound and picture are both quite good, making the HT a kick to watch a movie in.
