System goals: dynamic speed without being hard or thin, detail without being cold or etched, musical (sounds like real instruments/voices nothing added or taken away, revealing but not at the expense of musicality, a believable soundstage.  Overall, a full, rounded, balanced sound.

Music preferences: female vocals, classic pop/rock, jazz, opera
