If I were to do it all over, I'd make it with 1" less height, but very proud of the design, build, and sound of this kit:

Agreed! Worth the effort but I know how tedious the work is.

I appreciate this build on more than one level. Yes, the wood is beautiful, and the wood work is done at a level well above most people's ability. But it doesn't stop there. That same care and attention to detail is carried throughout this build. It takes more time and patience to produce a unit that not only sounds good but looks good as well. The metal working all the way down to the choice of fasteners stands out to me. It is a build that demands your attention to the use of space in every direction. Hopefully, you can 'leave it be', unlike myself, and enjoy it as is for the duration of it's life. Great job sir.

I added extra capacitance because the amps hummed very loudly. In this forum, that seems to be a common problem and a common fix. Mine aren't silent, and they do still hum, but it's only audible when no music is playing.
