Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Blues and classic rock. Also, some jazz, some classical, some rap, some classic country, some electronic. Really, I listen to everthing depending on my mood.
System Goals/Comments: I have more projects that I would like to build then I have money or time to complete. I do have a great listening room with hardwood floors.
System Strengths: Very efficient speakers that allow me to hear each change/mod. I built and or/moded just about everything in my system. I haven't spent that much money, but my system sounds very good to me.
System Weaknesses: I need a good set amp. Working on that right now. I would love to have a good turntable someday, too.

Comments on HT System: I don't spend a lot of time wathing TV. It's a cheap system but sounds pretty good when watching DVDs and cable in either DTS or DD.
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Thoroughbred racing, good whiskey
