System Goals/Comments: The system is only a delivery device for the music. The less I need to think about it the better the job it is doing.
System Strengths: Neutral, relatively resolving without being analytical, conveys rhythm and pulse well, and serves the music
System Weaknesses: Lacks the sense of flesh provided by the best tube systems. The 20 - 40Hz octave is mostly MIA but not greatly missed.
Video/HT System: None
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Friends, books, films, travel, good food & drink, photography, bicycling
