System Strengths: Kithara's are *very* good at soundstage, imaging and resolution, EAD electronics are very good.
System Weaknesses: Due to being in basement, furnace makes a racket when it runs. Direct view TV makes high freq. noise if it's on (flyback noise) so must turn the set off for serious audio use. EAD went bankrupt so the AMP, Processor and DVD components have no manufacturer support. I do think there's a few customization places that will work on it if anything goes wrong.
