|Music Preferences and Comments:|
|Music Used (Genre/Selections):||All. including: classical, jazz, rock, folk, electronica, world, etc.|
|System Goals/Comments:||Goal: enjoyment of music|
Rock, Electronica - doesn't matter if system is not 'hi-fi', still enjoyable. But for any acoustic instrument / vocal... put it this way, I was never into recorded jazz until I heard it on good vinyl playback. Currently considering a phono stage upgrade, REL subwoofer, eventually 300b or other SET monoblocks.
|System Strengths:||Acoustic instruments & vocals sound pretty good. This system has introduced me to styles of music I never previously appreciated. Makes me buy records.|
|System Weaknesses:||Not much 'wow' factor at first listen - Most friends don't really get it and are not really listening, they assume I'm fussy about soundstage/detail and don't hear the subtle emotional quality.|
Doesn't rock - not much punch/slam, or boogie factor.
Makes me buy records.
|Video/HT System: Separate|
|TV/Projector:||Proscan 27' in bedroom for dvd rentals|
|Comments on HT System:||Music reproduction is what it's all about. HT doesn't have much aesthetic value, more about wow factor then a really deep, meaningful experience. (example: how many HT buffs are really motivated to spend $$ on their system so they can better enjoy independant or foreign films?)|
|Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation:||Garage band (electric bass). Home recording: Homestudio - PC DAW running Logic 5, Echo Mona soundcard, various instruments, Midi keyboard, drumpad, mics.|
