Room Size (LxWxH): 27.5 x 27.5 long (right side narrows to 15.5 halfway down room behind listening position) x 22 peak ceiling
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): World Music, Bluegrass, Country, Jazz, Classical, some Rock
System Goals/Comments: Plan to work with more isolation under amps & preamp. Replace Nataraja Interconnect with Cosmos
System Strengths: Rock solid imaging, deep resolution of detail, air, deeply satisfying to listen to. A very big sounding system. No fatigue.
System Weaknesses: Terry Cain's proposed mod to add supertweeter to Abbys may provide more air, but there is no perception of anything missing. I doubt this speaker will ever have the effortless top end of the 15" Zingali horns, but they provide so much in every other department that you are hard pressed to believe that they sell for $1500!
Video/HT System: None
