Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Jazz, especially bebop era and small ensembles; Blues; Classical; good rock and roll (that means oldies to me; Layla is on my top 5 list of best albums ever recorded)
System Goals/Comments: Accurate music reproduction that is musically satisfying for me, I want the performance to happen in the room with me.
System Strengths: Resolution; dynamic contrasts; soundstage
System Weaknesses: My goal was to put together a system that was accurate and musical, that would draw me into the music. IMHO I have done that. However it is also revealing and on bad recordings or bright recordings, all the information is apparent, good and bad. GIGO... Sometimes I miss the warmth that my older ARC tube gear provided, even thought it was much more veiled sounding. Oh well, everything is a trade off in some regard.
Video/HT System: Separate
Comments on HT System: It's adequate
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: I can't afford any other hobbies, Actually I enjoy photography, reading, walking, hiking and working around the yard and house.
