    Yep... that's an old picture. They are currently powered by ARC and the TT is an SME 30.

    The system is pretty awesome.

    Not in any detail. These speakers were developed for a friend almost 10 years ago and have played many hours every day since.

    I'm not sure what you're asking... are you concerned about feedback? The turntables are on proper stands and well designed turntables have very well designed suspensions.

    The room has numerous Shun Mook tweaks. No comment on their efficacy.

    I'll do it for you: "A fool and his money...are lucky to get together in the first place." Apparently he's gone full banana, since he has a pic on Shun Mook's site with the ARC Ref's, and what are those, Focal's?

    Those amps and the Magico Minis are long gone. Many speakers have been in that room over the years... the Project Widgets have been among the longest in tenure... not being replaced since they were installed. We've tweaked the networks and he's swapped amps and pres, but the speakers have proven to have staying power.

    I'm sure I'd like the DIY's (they certainly look nice), and have always liked ARC (had Classic 120 monos and three pre-amps myself), but that expensive firewood silliness would have to go.
