System Goals/Comments: I wanna get a Squeezebox....but I want to know more first...most of my CD collection is already ripped to my HD.
System Strengths: Listening seems to evoke an emotional resoponse!

TV/Projector: Low-Def old-school big-screen rear projection...not too bad but the convergence is starting to go...
Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: Anthem AVM-20
