|System Goals/Comments:||Good low-level resolution|
Depth and presence to unamplified instruments and voice - sound of a real event heard through an open window - enjoyment for wife and son at hearing their favorites played well.
|System Strengths:||1. Very realistic on human voice, woodwinds, small jazz ensembles, chamber music.|
2. Doesn't take up a lot of space.
3. Sometimes I forget it's there when its on.
|System Weaknesses:||Inconsistent sound from day to day; tube equipment requires a full test bench and lots of spares to maintain; need better speakers (which is why i'm planning to get the Zus).|
|Video/HT System: None|
|Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation:||Building audio equipment from scratch with my 10 y/o son (he's better at soldering o PCBs, I'm better with terminal strips), snorkelling, mountain biking, going to F1 and CART races, racing R/C gas trucks, flying R/C gliders, gardening.|
