System Strengths: A nice space for what I use it for, which is mostly to play recordings of classical guitar for myself and/or my students.
System Weaknesses: Well, it's a small room. Hardly a place for critical listening.
Video/HT System: None
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: My guitars, tennis, working out, indoor cycling (spinning!), rowing ('crew'), travel, friends and non-fiction.

Classical guitarist/instructor/music coach.
