6. What kind of music do you listen to?
I listen to Lounge music and rock. Family listens to 80's and 90's hindi music.

7. Would you recommend it to others?

Soundstream lost its name before being bought by Epsilon electronics but I found the amp to be a lot more capable as history suggests. They are pretty decent for what I paid. I wanted the clarion 775usb even before clarion has launched it but had to settle with pioneer 7950. Not that I am complaining.

Aesthetics wise too, its second to none. The whole system has a silver/black tone with blue lighting.
