/\/\Yes.
Once Alu comes back from anodizing I'll do final wire clean up.

Top plates will be smoked 3mm perspex on the stereo amps.

Monos will be black

Amazing how you just did this in a weekend.  :dop: That's some skill there. I am looking forward to seeing the end product.

all done and playing, via Sony 1000ES pre,

I still need to strip of all the alu for anodizing, will be using Down Engraving in Stikland, as they also going to engrave on the face plates before they do the anodizing.

The sound is so good, big difference, much more power over the two KidNaps, could be the dual mono, transformer per channel and VAS board, not like the single transformer like in the KidNaps

Thanks to Rudi and Gideon

Will post pics soon
