Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Classical, Jazz, Vocals, Pop, Rock, - anything except hard metal and rap.
System Goals/Comments: Eventually to increase the resolution of the sources being used. The TT2 is a terrifically musical well balanced turntable. An improved cartridge and eventually an improved DAC will be on the way.
System Strengths: Allows for music to come before hi-fi. Wonderful cohesion from driver to driver emulating near single driver reproduction but with solid bass and treble extension. The AlniCo drivers have startling start and stop action rising above all lower level Audio Note speakers. A major step up.
System Weaknesses: Lacking the sophistication and breadth of better sources thus a less than whole overall presentation.
Video/HT System: Integrated
TV/Projector: Sony 60 inch W850B LCD
Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: Marantz SR 1504 surround sound receiver
Sources (DVD/VCR): Sony PS4
2 Sony PS3s
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Baseball (Go Blue Jays), Reading, Writing Stereo equipment reviews and poetry, forum and political and forum banter. Playing the odd video game.

I also enjoy Poker (Holdem) and play in cash games and tournaments.
