Music Preferences and Comments:

System Goals/Comments: I feel that I have reached around 95% of my goals here. I still want the very bottom octave.
System Strengths: Lush, gorgeous, liquid and articulate from the midbass thru the top end. Very natural and laid back, but with beautiful dynamics.
System Weaknesses: For me, none now that the Merlins have arrived. They provide top-flight sonics. Best I've heard at ANY price, exception being venerable Quad 57s.

Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: MSB Link Dac III
Speakers (Center, Surrounds, Sub): none

Comments on HT System: Sounds & looks fine after video calibration with Video Essentials disc. Not a priority for us really. Maybe watch 1 movie/week on it.
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Flying (aerobatics), surfing, mountain biking, vacationing with wife & baby.
