Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Listening to MJQ right now. I haven't been able to get into hip hop much but I like most everything else. I mostly like Jazz, namely latin Jazz. The bulk of what I listen to falls into the 'found it at a thrift store' category.
System Goals/Comments: Have fun without destroying marriage. Thanks largely to the VA I achieved everything I dared dream for. I have a few goals such as a power supply for the Technics and a way to digitally record my LPs, but other than that I'm here.
System Strengths: pretty well balanced - very neutral and dynamic.

System Weaknesses: pretty well balanced. I definitely need room treatments

Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: none
Speakers (Center, Surrounds, Sub): none
Other HT Gear: none
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Occupation: Who says I have a job?
