    I would give it an A+, were it not for the fingerprint smudge at the 3 o'clock position that is driving me crazy. But other then that, looks good.

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.
