Room Comments/Treatments: Speakers are out form the long wall. No room treatments yet except Thorsten's speaker positioning system
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Virtually everything - good is goog - but settling in on celtic/american bluegrass, beethoven, Glenn Gould, the amazing and sorely missed Jeff Buckley
System Goals/Comments: Very happy with all the parts except a better dvd/cd/sacd player would be nice, now I want to arrange them and get the most out of them.
System Strengths: Love the isolation of instruments in the soundstage. Sometimes the detail of vocals or violin or guitar takes my breath away. Nice and dynamic. Single point source is the only way for me.
System Weaknesses: Sound doesn;t go back as deep as I would like.
Video/HT System: Integrated
TV/Projector: nothing special
Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: same as above
Speakers (Center, Surrounds, Sub): same as above

Other HT Gear: An old Luxman processopr with hafler matrix built in that I use exclusively when it is hooked up.
Comments on HT System: nothing special
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Art, metaphysics / shamanism, movies, the human condition and the blood in me - hockey
