Amplifier: Harman Kardon A-402 intergrated
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): none - but may add amp soon, since the integrated can be used as a preamp.
Speakers: Axiom Audio M40ti
CD Player/DAC: none
Turntable/Phono Stage: Pro-Ject 1.2 (early version). Grado Blue cart.
Other Source(s): ipod, on occasion
Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:

Tweaks: Platter Matter Mat, TT platform of MDF and sorbothane feet
Room Size (LxWxH): 15 x 20 x 9
Room Comments/Treatments: Hardwoods, hard surfaces, etc. Generally a bright room. Biggest problem is a pier-and beam house with kinda weak foundation.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Punk, 80's "college radio," some 60's, some Country, some avant-classical, noise/experimental, and modern synth/rock
System Goals/Comments: trying to eek the most out of a small budget. Full range and clarity on a budget - no desire to achieve that top 1% for 10X the price.
System Strengths: Great midrange, very low listening fatigue - yet a very good amount of detail
System Weaknesses: Bass, probably... also feel that surface noise and ambient vibrations need taming. Probably a little laid back, but that's OK with me.
Video/HT System: None
