Music Used (Genre/Selections): Very eclectic...Diana Krall, Galactic, Offspring, Italian pop, Lyle Lovett, classic 70s stuff, rockabilly-swing, etc etc.
System Goals/Comments: I'd like to build up my cd collection, in part to help justify spending thousands on hardware ;-) But, as is the nature of this hobby, I'm already scheming as to what's next...Would like to audition a proper 2-channel preamp, then use my Nak only for HT.
System Strengths: Makes me want to listen instead of watching tv. Piece by piece, building a system that will be hard to beat without spending significantly more $.
System Weaknesses: No grounded power in my old apt. building. Some angst over which new speakers to buy to replace my KEFs. Need to spend time understanding room acoustics and making adjustments.
