|Music Preferences and Comments:|
|Music Used (Genre/Selections):||In this room I listen to small chamber, acoustic jazz and some guitar.|
|System Goals/Comments:||A tolerable alternative to my analog front end, given that so much new music is not available on vinyl.|
I did not wish to spend a lot on the CDP, so frequently does perfect sound forever improve.
|System Strengths:||With the Super Pav's, I am able to take advantage of the rear and side wall bass loading while minimizing the footprint of the loudspeaker. I auditioned quite a few speakers before settling on these.|
|System Weaknesses:||Given the room limitations, the only complaint is the lack of a deep soundstage. Bass output is far from flat, given the room, but far better than I ever hoped for in this little room.|
|Video/HT System: None|
|TV/Projector:||Shopping for a decent one to replace my 1992 raffle prize which has nothing but a 75ohm input!|
|Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation:||My guitars, tennis, working out, indoor cycling (spinning!), travel, friends and non-fiction.|
Classical guitarist/instructor/music coach.
