experimenting with various DIY stuff, a.o. 1on1 trafo (230V --> 2x115V)
Room Size (LxWxH): 5.7m x 5.2m x 2.4m
Room Comments/Treatments: Bare walls - hard concrete surfaces - laminate floor - luxaflex - very live sound. Some carpeting and experimenting with wall coverings to difract reflections (a.o. Bamboo mats) - no Tube traps or such for time being - prefer live sound
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Jazz / Latin / Folk / Chamber Music
life and improvised (often jazz and acoustic guitar) - also my own recordings
System Goals/Comments: transparency, clarity and detail, sharpness (like in a great Strat) and lightness/flowing
System Strengths: all the above - with a choice of mostly Quad for 'civilised listening' and horn speakers with SET amp with turntable for more live sound. I switch from one side to the other depending on mood.
System Weaknesses: yes, definitely - but very enjoyable systems
in process of realising PP-2A3
Video/HT System: Separate
