Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Acoustic Jazz and Classical, with interest in 1950-1998 R&B
System Goals/Comments: That I can enjoy the music. A system that will sound great on all recordings; and also 'settle' my thirst for further improvments. I now have a McIntosh system; and it does just that.
System Strengths: No background noise on sources. The sound is very musical and has some warmth, yet vocals stand out and the person's presence appears in the room on mostly any vinyl with singing.
System Weaknesses: Not the ultimate in detail. I might be able to resolve some of this by using more silver/silver-based interconnect.
Video/HT System: None
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Occupation: Cloud Migration Engineer (specializing in Microsoft Azure)

Hobbies: Investing, Composing
