Other (Power Conditioner, Racks etc.): None Tweaks: None Room Size (LxWxH): 10m or 33 feet x 3.8m or 12 feet x 2.3m or 7.5 feet Room Comments/Treatments: The walls (and the bass horn surfaces) are damped at strategic places, that's all. Music Preferences and Comments: Music Used (Genre/Selections): Mostly rock music (especially proggressive/symphonic rock) and a bit classical System Goals/Comments: My preferences are details, clarity, dynamics (at drum kit should sound as large as a real drum kit), 'they-are-here' sense, presence, natural human voices - and the ability to play loud without compression (on the other hand perspective means less to me). System Strengths: To a large extent the system does satisfy the above mentioned preferences. The system is very clear, detailed, and powerful although still very natural sounding. (The horns are time aligned.) System Weaknesses: Yes, I forgot, the system takes up a lot of space.....!
