Room Comments/Treatments: I have heavy curtains, thick window shades, canvas paintings on the wall, and about 4500 albums in the same room. It works in my small room.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): jazz,rock, popular, classical, blues- I love many kinds, except opera- someday?
System Goals/Comments: Fun, involving, non-fatigueing, makes me want to move my body while listening. The Emerald Physics are new after 12 years with the Maggie 3.6. It is a good extension of that speaker - baffle-less and open, but with greater dynamics and bass. The Thorens is a powerful, dynamic way to listen to records. The SPU experience is something that is rounder, deeper and more saturated than my other moving coil experiences.
System Strengths: Beautiful, extended treble, open midrange, low, accurate bass, images great, provides fun for hours
System Weaknesses: I'm sure that there are many ways for the system to improve. But it is good enough to enjoy music without aching for more.
Video/HT System: None
