Works for Me, a Two-channel Audio System by cheech

036
Room Size
28 x 20 x 10
System Overview
Two channel system situated in living room (turntable is on bottom shelf due to infrequent use - not much smooth jazz on vinyl)
Music Preferences
Predominately smooth jazz, with splashing of old school r&b , classic rock, 80's new wave, blues
Acoustic Treatment
None, could benefit from some to optimize sound but not practical as system is in the living room
Listening Impressions
Enjoyable to listen to, no fatigue factor , system is not partial to one genre or another, very good dynamics, pace, placement/separation; plays big in my room without passing 10 o'clock on the volume dial
