Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Rock, electronica, some jazz, and a little classical.
System Goals/Comments: I wanted to put together a system that would allow me to hear the nuances of a small jazz set, but also make me feel like getting up on my feet when I throw in some Chemical Brothers.
System Strengths: I'm really happy with how sweet and musical everything sounds (sorry, I'm not too up on my audiophile lingo). The system is so much more involving than most others I've heard. The bass was really my low point until I added the Tempest sub. Now it's just plain excellent.
System Weaknesses: At this point the weak point has to be the amps. The Waves are great for what I paid, but I'll eventually be getting something with a little more pizzazz.
Video/HT System: None
