Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Listen to and enjoy about anything, save your hardcore gansta or hiphop, or post Garth Brooks-era country.
System Goals/Comments: less sh*t, more sh*nola
System Strengths: Beautiful jazz system, and surprisingly good with rock/classical, after mmg mods improved bass and dynamics. Actually, just love listening to music (90% LPs) on my rig. No doubt there's better out there, but I'm enjoying the hell out of this. Plus, all the diy stuff (speakers, amps, preamps, etc) is a big factor in my enjoyment of audio.

And BTW, the Heartland cables are just great.
They not only sound wonderful, but at the price, there's no sense in diy. Couldn't be happier
