1- Gorgeous.

 

2 - I take it the problem of ion plasma tweeters poisoning users with ozone has been at least somewhat resolved?

 

;)

That's only if it's in the 40 watt range....   😀

Mostly stream Tidal HiFi either via iPhone through Airport Express or MacBook Air to Schiit Bifrost DAC. '70s-vintage Concept 3.5 receiver as preamp > SAE 2300 > Infinity Quantum 2. Probably less than $1,200 invested for some fine sound. Brings a smile to my face everyday!

It's never about the $$$, what matters is the enjoyment. Thanks for sharing!

Unfortunately, because of commercial considerations, much information is rooted in increasing revenue, not in assisting the audiophile. It seems as if the only requirements for becoming an "authority" in the world of audio is a keyboard."

Just bought a tiny Little Pro-Ject Pre Box S2 Digital for serious headphone listening. A little add-on to my Devialet system that has no headphone out. Very nice listening when working at my computer. It‘s amazing what they pack into these tiny boxes!

Update...

 

Made all the parts that rest against cables 100% wood.  Found out that metal in racks can cause problems with unshielded cabling.   The nice bar stool found at Walmart, comes in various heights. Keep all wiring away from close contact with metal shelving, tubing, etc.   When in close proximity the metal can add a distortion to the sound and you might never know where its coming from.
