Room Comments/Treatments: LOTS of absorptive diffusion (2" Sonex melamine) on the walls. (I'm listening in near field.)
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Classical (lots of choral and Gregorian chants) and religious music.
System Goals/Comments: All I was after was a good sounding set of desktop speakers and I got a little carried away.
System Strengths: Smooth and revealing! Music that I once thought was poorly recorded now sounds great!
System Weaknesses: Perhaps too revealing in that I get sibilace on many vocals. I use foobar with an equalizer and low pass filter to make these recording listenable.
Video/HT System: None
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Mysticism!
