Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Rock, Jazz, Blues
System Goals/Comments: I run my preamp in passive mode, which is why I use the Nordost interconnects (they have the right capacitance and inductance for passive). I'm going for the most neutral sound possible, although I have to admit my system is very laid back right now.
System Strengths: Great soundstaging and imaging (once I got the speakers set up correctly!).
System Weaknesses: Low WAF due to the Maggies. Difficult speaker placement. I worry about the kids knocking the Maggies over.

Comments on HT System: I desparately need to upgrade my TV. I'm thinking about a 32" SDTV from Panasonic or a Sony XBR400 when they come out.
