Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): This system is my 'play what I find' place, so lots of used vinyl and some CD's/SCAD's smuggled from home.
System Goals/Comments: Make tunes while I am staying there.
System Strengths: The La Scalas surprised me with how they portray ambient information - good at going deep into the background sound of a recording. Surprisingly delicate treble. Over-all, quite fast, with good bass articulation to about 50Hz. Mui fantastico on sax and trumpet. Acoustic bass is nice, too. Effortless dynamics.
System Weaknesses: No really deep bass, sounds bright on some recordings.
Video/HT System: None
