Room Comments/Treatments: dedicated listening room, constructed and wired with that in mind. Excellent sounding room, i.e. it disappears, as much as that is possible, or desirable.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): most anything except hip-hop, rap, product driven 'Country' and metal machine music-sorry Lou
System Goals/Comments: realistic dynamics and tonality; a system which can accurately reproduce the sound of real instruments and real voices recorded in a real acoustic space.
If the detail was recorded it should be reproduced exactly as on the recording. Detail can never be 'created' by the playback system, thus there can be no such thing as 'too much' detail, all opinion to the contrary notwithstanding.
System Strengths: sounds like real performers in a real space if the recording allows for that
System Weaknesses: Not many. Won't pay for itself.
Video/HT System: None
