New maggies
Room Size
12' X infinity (at least that's the way it seems.....) actually 30'
System Overview
Well balanced - front end tube smoothness and SS MOSFET output punch on the bottom.
Music Preferences
Be bop, classic jazz, big band, any kind of good rock, punk, alternative, pop, some chamber music. Anything as long as it's well played, has some emotion to it and is well recorded.
Room Description
Enclosed on 3 sides but wide open to the right. Makes for some interesting room EQ treatment
Acoustic Treatment
Nothing really. Have to live with WAF on furniture placement.
Listening Impressions
Smooth and detailed. Solid low end. Great soundstage. Vocals and acoustic instruments as natural as anything I've heard.
Media Storage
Vortexbox based mini w/1Tb built in & 2 1Tb externals for backup. Additional backup on main tower system.
