Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): Various, including stripped and modded PAS-4 (decent phono section!) DIY 8233-based/xfrmr out pre.
Speakers: REALLY like my Omega 3 XRS. Also have Hawthorne Audio Silver Iris's, Spendor 3/1's, and various others.

Room Comments/Treatments: Heavy carpeting, with thick Persian rug in front of listening area. No specific room treatments.
Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Very Eclectic. Classical, jazz, blues, 70's rock, etc.
System Goals/Comments: Accurate timbre and pitch. Appropriate "scale" and dynamics.
System Strengths: Analog playback is better than it should be, and what I sit down to listen ... Digital is not offensive, and with a good CD, enjoyable, but still background when I'm working or cooking.
System Weaknesses: The frequency extremes. Analog could be more "palpable." Digital ... see above.
Video/HT System: None
