Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Most types but prefer blues, R&B, 70's-80's rock, progressive, electronica, whatever takes my fancy.
System Goals/Comments: I want a system where the soundstage almost envelopes you - a sort of an 'I'm in there' feeling. I get in there now more often than I used to, but it always could be better.
System Strengths: Vinyl front end getting better and better.
My DIY speakers are awesome (compared to what I had). As the LP12 tweaks continue improving the speakers seem up to it. Soundstage and slam seem to be getting better and better.
System Weaknesses: Happy now but I'm sure this will change. There is always more to spend, more to tweak!
Video/HT System: None
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Road cycling, camping, fishing, fathering.
