Room Comments/Treatments: Needs softening/dampening materials on walls-room a bit hard and reflective.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Totally eclectic, but collection is mostly pop, rock, blues. Taste is changing with age. Really getting partial to well- recorded stuff of all genres.
System Goals/Comments: No high-end aspirations anymore-sold all that stuff 7 years ago. Miss it, can't afford it anymore, and now HT more practical in this house and with my current finances. With less free time, more inclined to watch a movie with my wife. I still enjoy a dark room and good music-it just doesn't happen too much.
System Strengths: Movies is strong point. SACD and DVD-A sound great. Even though a HT first, system still enjoyable for music. System is actually quite neutral for tunes, no sizzle, honest to the source. It sounds surprisingly good, all things considered. Decent soundstage with good width.
System Weaknesses: Not really high resolution but good enough to reveal limitations in sources and software. Limited soundstage depth. Outside street noise sometimes an issue.

TV/Projector: Sony WV600 57" RPT
Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: See above for all.

Comments on HT System: Lots of fun but I feel that the dialogue and fine details could be better.
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Tennis, weights, chiropractor,reading, health, nutrition, gadgets.
