Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Eclectic: 60's art-rockers to 70's punk to Flaming Lips to opera, classical, Celtic, "chill" music, Angelo Badalamenti movie soundtracks...
System Goals/Comments: Reliable non-fussy system with fidelity that far exceeds the $$ spent on it through careful selection of "bang-for-the-buck" components.
System Strengths: See above.
System Weaknesses: Components are very difficult to access in my rack, and my TT is susceptible to footfalls.

I may upgrade speaker cables and remaining ICs soon.

Upgrade preamp and tuner eventually. Nothing super-necessary but a quieter preamp (esp. phono stage) would be nice.
