What Makes your System Special?


Could be anything but interested in what makes it special for you.   Is there something you would want to change?

Mine is its musicality... how seductive it is. After, about forty years of ribbon and electrostatic speakers, and massive amplifiers that gave me incredibly detailed and realistic paintings of the venue and each instrument... and of the musician that moved his foot. I have a system that changed the highlights from the details to the sound of the music, the emotional gestalt. All the details are still there, it is just that they are not in the spotlight. I am drawn into listening for long periods of time, finding it difficult not to tap my foot. I don't listen to my system any more, I listen to music. I happily have moved to a much more rewarding system than I have ever had before. 
@ghdprentice very nice! I’ve found Audio Research gear in particular to be very good at what you describe. Sonus Faber as well. My favorite local dealer featured both a few years back....everything he sold excelled in "musicality". My setup took a swing in that direction as well when I added a sp16 pre-amp acquired there a number of years back. I have it in my mind that I would like to compare it with some of the latest and greatest alternatives known for pure technical execution, specifically Benchmark, just for the fun of it, but every time I listen I think "why should I change this"?
One of a kind. 
No. 
My low ceilings. I've done a lot of work to deal with them and the response curves and listening tests make things sound very good. But, bottom line, 6.5 ft ceilings are major impediments and are the main reason I'll get into a new space when I can.
