System Goals/Comments: Trying to get an effortless sound that moves your feet!

Got rid of preamp and started piping the Squeezebox straight into the amp. What a difference!

After that, tweaks to power and Teac amp got this system sounding pretty musical. Biggest difference was a dry-ice cryo of the tripath board (surprise!).
System Strengths: Can rock out and play loud volumes without compression. Laid back and sweet.
System Weaknesses: Not a detailed or refined system. Three drivers don't transition that well. Not much in the extremes frequencies, and overall rather dark sounding, but these crimes of omission work well for the some of other compromises I make with the source materials.
Video/HT System: None
