System Goals/Comments: My System Sounds fairly good and is getting much stronger on the Analog side of things. Digital Music to me is only for back ground noise when I do other things and don't really listen. Vinyl Sounds so good on my system.
System Strengths: The NAD Preamp is very nice IMO I am very pleased with the sound that I get out of the B&K Amp and The NAD Preamp.They just really work well together.The ProJect RPM 1 Carbon Turntable is the best sounding Turntable I have ever owned.It has Blacker Background than many a CD Player.I have owned Denon DL60,Technics 1200, BIC 980, and others I cannot remember but the Project sounds much better than any of those turntables ever did.
System Weaknesses: Speakers! I want to find another pair of Polk LSi7 as they have the best imaging I have ever heard.Maybe the Polk LSi9 would do the trick but I never heard those.
Video/HT System: None
