Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Jazz and Rock of many kinds.
System Goals/Comments: I want it to sound good to me playing all kinds of source material.
System Strengths: Great combination of musicality and neutrality. Can listen to it for hours and hours.
System Weaknesses: Complex and expensive. Only I can use most of what it does (wife can play CDs and DVDs, that's it).
Video/HT System: Integrated
TV/Projector: Sharp Aquos 65" LCD
Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: Rotel RSP 1066 (used for surround only)Sunfire Cinema Grand amp for Center/Surrounds
Speakers (Center, Surrounds, Sub): B&W Nautilus 805's for rears; B&W Nautilus HTM-1 for center
Sources (DVD/VCR): Oppo BDP-95
Comments on HT System: I have a 'hybrid' system. 2-Channel sources go through Myryad 2-channel preamp and into my Sunfire SigII amp via Balanced interconnect, and the Rotel's main outs go in unbalanced, so I can use the same power amp and main speakers for both applications, while having separate 'purist' 2-channel and multichannel front ends.
