Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): All types

I grew up on my dad's oldies and my punk, learned to love jazz, always had a soft spot for classical, listen to some rap and reggae as well as a sprinkling of world music and electronic stuff. I'm developing a more recent appreciation for a lot of noise and experimental music.

Did I leave anything out?
System Goals/Comments: Since I listen to a wide variety of music, I need a balanced system that can do a little bit of everything.

I'm also big on the turntable being user friendly since I am prone to spinning records while I work around the house and all, so I really like the automatic table so it shuts off at the end of normal records or when I want to be wandering around with a stack of 78s or 45s dropping.
System Strengths: Detailed without being too bright and plenty of low extension. Great dynamics.
System Weaknesses: Nothing I'm unhappy with for now.
Video/HT System: None
