System Goals/Comments: "Accurate" (truthful?) timbre and macrodynamics are the game, don't care about imaging.
System Strengths: Natural presentation, in an understated way. Detailed with brass biting when it's in the recording but with a realistic balance of each instruments relative prominence in the musical mix.
