Not why you might have thought

I admit to a mild troll.

The design point of my system is chamber music. Its strengths are dynamics and microdynamics, instrumental timbre, transient response, acoustics of the recording venue and other subtle parameters that are present only on recordings of serious music by small groups or individuals, using minimalist miking and mixing techniques.

This is not what most people expect in a "hi fi" demo. No thundering bass or shimmering highs -- just the music, accurately and unobtrusively presented.

I just play the music and let them conclude that there is nothing special about my system -- it does not command their attention -- but that the music is beautiful. To me, that is what it is all about.
