Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Rock, Jazz, Blues
System Goals/Comments: I want instruments such as pianos and saxophones to sound as they do in live music, or at least as close as I can get it. I expect my system to be involving and fun to listen to. This system accomplishes that.
System Strengths: The best I can say is that this system is immersive, involving and fun to use. The JM Reynaud Offrande speakers are incredible. No listening fatigue at all. They provide a sense of musical connection that never fails to draw me into the music. What's most important to me is tone and a natural musical balance. This system gets that right for me.
System Weaknesses: I suppose that the bottom end could be lower but in my current room there's no need.

Comments on HT System: I'm a former Pioneer Kuro owner who didn't think there was anything out there to equal the Kuro. The Sony A8H proved me wrong. It's better.
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Opposing Donald Trump and his supporters.
