System Goals/Comments: Main system goal is to create a system with great imagaging and PRAT, with a warm presentation (I want to connect to the music). The biggest problem with this is that I'm on a tight budget (22 year old college student). Because of this, I bought everything used or demo.
System Strengths: Does everything well (soundstage, imaging, etc). Very realistic sounding and musical. Completely disappears into the room.
