Music Preferences

Instead of musical preference, how about audio preference: I like a transparent, balanced, extended sound. I am also a big fan of natural detail, resolution, and speed from an all-tube system. Speed usually means good clean power. Soundstage is also very important to me and as a result I listen to speakers a lot more than headphones. I believe that good cables are better than bad cables, but upgrading amp, source, and transducer makes more difference than ANY cable. As a result I will never spend more money to upgrade cables than to upgrade components. I think the source is the most important individual part of the audio chain, followed by the transducer, followed by the amplifier. However, all of these individual components are superseded by system synergy and personal taste. I feel that my current system is the best it has ever been and I am very happy with it.
