    Great looking system, and nice unboxing and setup photos. I’m a little curious about how Mike let you get away without a way to play LP’s?

    He tried. Before he left he said those 2 empty shelves would be perfect for a turntable and phono preamp. Over the years I’ve evolved into a hard core digital guy. Too late now to go back and spin LPs.

    The Core Audio racks do tie the whole system together. The craftsmanship is exceptional as well as the vibration damping.
