Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Eclectic mix of Female vocalists, classic & current pop/rock, New Age, World and More!
System Goals/Comments: I am seeking disappearing speakers, and an involving and natural presentation of tone and image

Someday I'd like to separate HT and perhaps try tubes (need bigger house)

System Strengths: Certainly my best to date, can be very involving with right recording. Vocals,piano and guitar sound as close to realistic as I've heard.

Great at consuming discretionary income (my fault, I suppose)!

System Weaknesses: The Merlins excel at dredging up detail and presenting a wide and seamless soundstage, although a little "hard" tonally.
Gershmans are truly a full range speaker, lush and involving, but lack the imaging of the Merlins.
