Very nice and I'll bet it sounds as good as it looks.  By the way, it starts one piece at a time and then just spreads like weeds in the yard

Nick,










































































































Nick. 

I expect it will sound even better than it looks.   Do you plan to use it as the main system?

I know I can google this but apart from draining your wallet even more, what does a tube crossover do?

Everything looks nice, of course.  Will this be our new main system?

While that looks like a sweet piece and I'd love to hear it, I can't help but think that may be a tad high.

I have no idea,  never even knew that piece existed.  There is also no other reference to go to for price either.  I will agree though, 2k+ to me would definitely be high.

Already got one, wasn't quite that expensive. I would compare it to the audio research 3 way tube crossover, so fair market should be around $1000, maybe a little more for that one since it's nice and complete.  If anyone else finds one, i am getting Phil Marchand (marchand crossovers) to make my cut off boards.
