Turntable/Phono Stage: The TT and LPs are stacked away bacause of lack or space. It makes me cry every time I look att the boxes of some 1k LPs.

Room Size (LxWxH): 4.7m x 4.1m x 2.7m
Room Comments/Treatments: Almost square! What can I Someday I'm gonna build some of Risch's tube traps. I suffer from the lazy man's syndrome so who knows when that will happen :) Due to the small size of the apartment, the listening room is just packed with books and stuff, which works out pretty well, he he.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Hmmm...everything except hip-hop, techno, rap, whining country, and opera. Primarily blues and jazz though.
System Goals/Comments: The best compromise I can get between detail, soundstage and tonality
System Strengths: Great detail and soundstage width. Low mids and upwards are excellent.
System Weaknesses: Boomy bass, soundstage depth. Not enough space for proper distance between speakers and rear wall. Also, a 32" widescreen TV sits slightly behind and between the speakers. I know, not very good but its all a compromise.
