Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): 80% Rock (Ranging from Yes/King Crimson prog style to Springteen/Neil Young/Eagles classic to Tool/Alice in Chains hard rock). 10% Blues. 10% Jazz.
System Goals/Comments: Look for high degree of tranparency, but not "hyper" detailed. I'll take tight bass over lower bloated base anytime. Try to get the mids and voices as accurate as possible.
System Strengths: I am fairly happy with my digital setup for now (Arcam CD23T, Kimber Silver Streak, Arcam A85, DH Labs T-14, PSB Stratus-i. I am able to get a good amount of detail out of this set-up.
System Weaknesses: Analog (TT) side of the system is not quite to the level of the digital side yet. Looking to find a good interconnect to replace the entry level Tara Labs that I'm currently using.

Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers: Arcam A85 (2-channel only). No plans to go any further at this point.

Motorola DVR (Cable Box)
Other HT Gear: None.
Comments on HT System: Originally started with an integrated HT/Music system, but abandoned that attempt to focus on 2-channel only (with no regrets).
