Music Used (Genre/Selections): classical - especially Baroqu and 20th century British(Holst , Vaugh Williams),

Folk - especially British Isles(love Celtic, early Clannad, Pentangle)

System Goals/Comments: reproduction, monitor quality - if the software sucks, it should sound lousy(if I like the music I'll listen anyways), but great recordings should blow you away occasionally. Dynamics, dynamics, dynamics - changes in loudness big and smal should be as accurate as possible(dynamics has little to do with loudness, undynamic systems can play loud).
System Strengths: low colouration, wide bandwidth, exciting dynamics
System Weaknesses: little forward on lousy software(a proce you pay for accuracy)
Video/HT System: None
