    I'm just curious, what kind of music do people here listen to most, genre, band, whatever, and what kind of speakers do you use? brand, tower or monitor, model # of your mains?
    Never thought I'd read the "polls" section of the forum, but look! two posts in one night!!

    Interesting topic I must say. Something that I too am rather curious about.
    These days I find myself listening to more and more country. Call me a hick, but there's something rather peaceful about the lyrics and music that I enjoy immensely. I'm still a rock and roller at heart so I'll never stop listening to my favorites- Rush, Dave Matthews, Dream Theater, Soundgarden, Van Halen and the few songs that my current band "Redd Shift" (Redd isn't a typo) has on CD. Yeah I realize that's somewhat self indulgent, but I really love the stuff we write. It kind of grabs you by the booboo. [​IMG]
    Oh, I have JBL home speakers but I really don't listen to music that much on them. They're mostly used for home theater. I do the majority of my music listening on my truck system. Alpine, Clarion, Rockford Fosgate, and JL Audio.

    I listen mainly to film scores and classical, but I'll listen to some rock and pop occasionally. My speakers are the mighty NHT 3.3s.

    I have gone through many phases of music listening. I get into the groove of a new sound and buy up a bunch of discs. Eventually, it wanes and I pick up on something else. The good news is that I still enjoy the music and have come to conclude that I like just about "everything".
    The kick I have been on the last year or so is that of a folk-rock sound. I know exactly where this comes from(it has been over 10 years in the making), the day I purchased REM's "out of time". Its amazing how good that folk rock can sound, that whole accoustic thing can be incredible. I love detail and I hear much of it in Julie Millers "Blue Pony".
    The speakers I use are Mirage OM 10s wired to an overly bright amp. I preferred the softer sound of the sony but am looking forward to the day when I get a good 5.1 reciever.
    But by then, I'll probably be listening to something completly different.

    My musical tastes vary from R&B, latin, hip hop, dancehall, and jazz. My speakers are the PSB century 300i used in conjunction with the subsonic 6 for music.

    I'm into a jazz phase now. I've been collecting various types of jazz music and I play them on my music only system that uses Norh 5.2 speakers.

    Lately with all the crap going on in the world; I have been on a Bonzo Dog Do Dah Band , Harry Nilsson kick...both make me smile and not a lot does that right now
    If you like Monty Python you'll probably like the Bonzos.
    I have mostly KEFs; 5 x Q75s in the main with a 20B sub and the C series in the bedroom..BAs in most of the other rooms

    I enjoy classic rock. But, I have a pretty wide range of music I enjoy.
    The music that sounds best on my Monitor Audio Silver 5i speakers is classical and new age. I did some "critical" listening last night, I still love my Monitor Audio speakers!

    I listen to classic rock, modern rock, blues, jazz and classical through my B&W N805s with SVS 20-39PC.
    I avoid most country, rap, metal and adult contemporary.
    But when it comes to spending the money on a SACD and sitting down for a good listen, I lean toward jazz fusion.
    Grant,

    Little bit of everything except for hardcore (ironically I'll be running sound at a hardcore concert tomorrow), opera, and rap. Depends upon what I'm in the mood for. Also listen to a lot of talk radio (mostly in the car, but enjoy Art Bell [​IMG]).
    For the speakers, nOrh wood 5.1s or ceramic 4.0s (5.1s are currently breaking in so I use them as my mains in both systems - fairly easy to swap them in and out), and SVS 20-39CS w/S700 amp.

    I've been on a DVD-Audio kick lately with American Beauty and Rumors. But I've also been purchasing and enjoying some re-mastered stuff from the early 70's such as:
    George Harrison - All Things Must Pass
    Floyd - Dark Side of The Moon
    Harry Nilsson - Nilsson Schmilsson
    Fronts are Snell, Model J's (early 80's) with a Paradium PS-1000 sub.

    i listen to pretty much the same metal bands as johank (ie...slipknot, mudvayne, coal chamber, nin, manson, ministry...) but i also enjoy older alternative rock like nirvana, pearl jam, toadies, weezer (blue album), and toadies with a smattering of techno from aphex twin and orbital and a pinch of techno/industrial from pig and kmfdm.

    i use mirage frx-7 speakers.

    I mostly listen to metal/alternative/punk type stuff, but also classic rock stuff, 50s and 60s, classical - but almost no rap, no country, and none of the dance/radio hits junk.

    This is with Paradigm Monitor 7s, v.2 and a PDR-10 (by spring a SVS I hope).

    Mostly metal/rock is heard coming from my Paradigm Studio 40's. Of the metal it is mostly Megadeth.
