Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): refer to main system
System Goals/Comments: This is my additional bedroom system. Because of my furniture arrangement, I needed speakers that could reside close to the front wall. I started out with other amplification, but I ended up with the Jota again as it remains the best amplifier I've ever heard.
System Strengths: Very smooth and non-fatiguing, with LOTS of big, tight bass (the most of any of my systems). Impressive soundstaging despite the fact that the speakers are up against the wall.
System Weaknesses: Midrange is not as palpably real (a bit diffuse) and the treble isn't as liquid as my main system (which I find perfect, so it's hard to top perfection).
Video/HT System: None
