  1. That is a lot of work you have put into showing what is inside the equipment. I used to take apart computers my father would bring home from his work, so these parts look familiar to me. Of course I couldn't tell you how to get them to work together to make audio equipment better, but that's what is nice about this post.

    What an incredible setup! I have done some of your basic mods to my computer with your products and the sound has become noticeably smoother, more musical, fatigue free and with loads of density and slam. Your products are worth their weight in gold in my opinion. Well done!
