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...

Steve, I'm jealous. They look great even on the shelves. Tesla would be proud too! :D

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!
