VTL MB250 Signature Monoblocks replaced the M500t Mk. II.
Messy cubbyhole and guts.
Guys on the other forum are shaming me into getting rid of the shelves...

Re: SteveFord's Stuff

FesteLV,
I was thinking of you this evening as I had some Zappa on.
If you can manage to swing a set of these, even if it means peanut butter and jelly for a few months, do it. You will not regret it.

Re: SteveFord's Stuff

Those racks look pretty impressive but I'd have to look for used.
Just snagged a power conditioner and have some more of Ben's interconnects on order.
Have to make some more power cords as well.
It never stops.
P.S.
I was expecting that link to lead me to the official site of Tits On Parade magazine or something similar. Oh well.

Re: SteveFord's Stuff

Much needed device for the upstairs system:
APC H15 power conditioner. Voltage sagged from 119 to 113 with everything turned on, it now runs 121V and the sound is greatly improved.

Re: SteveFord's Stuff

Getting a little closer to how I want it.
Need longer interconnects and power cords for the amps so I can move them out behind the speakers but it's getting there.
Really tight working quarters!

Re: SteveFord's Stuff

My cheapie cabinet crapped out after two weeks (big sag in the middle) so here's the new one - much sturdier construction.
The old one is out on the curb if anyone wants it!
