System Goals/Comments: All DHT. Cheap, available parts, modular build so easy to modify. Goal is TIMBRE - get the exact tone of the acoustic instruments right and I'm happy. DHTs get me there.
System Strengths: Very realistic timbre to instruments - delicate and detailed sound which is perfect for orchestral music and small group jazz.
System Weaknesses: Low volume, but I don't listen loud. Won't produce large dynamic contrasts, but I don't require this.
