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 says is that this system is immersive and involving. The Koetsu Black cartridge and EAR834P phono stage work really well together. 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 LG 4K OLED 55BGP proved me wrong. It's better.
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Resisting Donald Trump and his supporters.
