Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Soul, Jazz/Jazz Fusion, UK Garage, Dance, R&B, Rap, Drum & Bass, some rock, some clasical
System Goals/Comments: Sort out the dirty electrical side of the system. Incorporte some additional isolation. Some Interconect upgrades including a re-wire on the Rega (Now Done. Cool). Tuner and Tape deck and maybe MD upgrades
System Strengths: Nice warm sound no matter what I play even from the CD Player which has a valve output. Having said that, has a nice edge to it when you play the right type of music.
System Weaknesses: No seperate spur as yet. Once I have clean electrics then I can see what else if anything is wrong. Tape and Tuner are very weak compared to the rest of the system but don't use them much. And I have been told that maybe the Pre Amp is not up to the Job!!!

Comments on HT System: Have had this in place now for a while now and the only thing I would bother replacing is the DVD player. The rest of the system works well. Oh... I'd get a bigger house as there is a lot here.
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: Intrests include music (surprise!!), reading, going to the gym, bars/clubs, women, playing Paintball and Playstation. Chilling out!
