Make sure to adjust your EQ before you run your system. Nice looking equipment.

Also, NEVER connect/disconnect IC's on these powerful type amps when they are turned on. They'll take that "static" and amplify the shit out of it (the near instantaneous changes in input signal voltage) and it's bye-bye woofer(s)! My daughter did this to my EPI 1000's a couple of years ago....she plugged in (or unplugged) her iPod from my powered up TFM-42 and it literally SHOT the VC right out thru the speaker cone! Plus broke the spyders loose on a couple other of the 8" drivers.....big no-no! I think I posted pics back then....
FR: 400 disk changer with PS Audio Digital Link III DAC; Technics SL-1100A TT. QED Quenx1 IC's from DAC & TT to Adcom GTP-602 preamp/Tuner. AudioQuest King Cobra IC's from preamp to M1.0t mk-II opt2. QED Silver Spirals 4M wires to EPI 1000’s.
LR: AudioEngine wireless link from family room preamp to Barcus-Berry 2002R Sonic Maximizer to GlowPower Zyxt IC's to Sunfire 300x2 to Nordost 6M bi-source wires to AOS 28" MDF spherical speakers using six 6.5" woofers and eight 1" dome tweeters symm. arranged around the surface.
SS system: CX-995V DVD to AV-634x 3-4 channel amp (center/rears) & M1.0t mk-II opt2(fronts).
