System Goals/Comments: I'm aiming to have the whole thing DIY, figure I'm about 90% there by component count and value.
System Strengths: Immediacy, realism in the mids, excellent feeling of scale and staging
System Weaknesses: I made it, so it doesn't have any! (OK, its a bit flabby in the bass, and the room needs more treatment)

Need more LPs!
