Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.

Re: ChopsMkII's System...

Thank you guys! It's been a long fun road to get here. This is by far the best system I have pieced together. I imagine it can only get better as time goes on.

Verrrrry nice! I can see some audio enjoyment in front of that system, for sure.

Thanks for sharing the pics and the system!

Re: ChopsMkII's System...

Again, thanks! And you're welcome.

There's only two things I need to complete the system that I can think of at the moment. One is getting the modded 4000t into the system. That should happen towards the end of the month. And the other is getting a second pair of rack handles for the M-500t amps. I have one pair already that are still sitting in the shipping package, but no point on putting them on one amp when the other is still incomplete. Luckily, they're great looking amps with and without the handles.

The only other thing that I've been pondering, and not sure if this would be going in the opposite direction or not as far as sound quality is concerned... Is swapping out the JL Audio e110 subwoofer for a Sunfire True Subwoofer EQ 10 Signature or EQ 12 Signature. It would be nice to have even more Carver gear in my system, and getting one of these subs would definitely be a way of doing that. But, since I'm only running the sub from 46 Hz on down, I sort of doubt there would be much in the way of sound quality differences between them.

And this little JL e110 is certainly no slouch by any means...
