|System Goals/Comments:||I just like something that sounds nice and I enjoy listening to. I also like to tweak things a little. I like to get the most bang for my buck. Makes building a system more fun.|
|System Strengths:||Very dynamic sound. I enjoy it.|
|System Weaknesses:||The crappy tubes, poor stands,absense of isolation, lack of a quality power cable for the source are definite deficiencies. Hopefully I will remedy these in the near future.|
|Video/HT System: Integrated|
|Comments on HT System:||I use my 2-channel for home theater with a crappy 20" TV. The sound rivals that of HT systems I have heard in the $3000-4000. I can't bring myself to buy an expensive TV or surround sound. But if someone wants to donate, please feel free ;)|
|Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation:||Golf, skiing, cycling, yoga, politics, history, law, business.|
