Other Accessories/Room/Misc.:

Tweaks: Way too much to describe, everything is modded to the max, using only the highest quality parts, and all poly film filter supplies..
Room Comments/Treatments: Relatively small listening room
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Folk, blues, progressive rock, classic rock, a little jazz, techno, old shit, new shit, you name it!
System Goals/Comments: Goal is a nice vintage system with powerful bottom end, and detailed highs, warm and rounded midrange. Think we got it :)
System Strengths: This system will pound a kick drum right in your gut, and that punch has a lot of descriptive detail unlike a solid state system. The two seperate mono pre amps along with the level III Citation mod, produces wonderful separation..
System Weaknesses: This system will not treat average recordings or poorly produced recordings with any forgiveness. Certain recordings that sound good on mid-fi systems are ruthlessly played back on this system. It only reproduces what's there. If the recording has crappy engineering or compression, the system won't warm it over..
Video/HT System: None
