    Ordered an Elekit TU-8600 kit. I've never even heard a 300b amp, so I'm excited to try one out. Won't arrive until June or July though.

    Anyone have experience with this one?

    Yep, not worried so much about building, but wondering if anyone has heard one (I don't think the initial run was very large).

    Thanks brother! It's a mess right now. Glad the weather is getting better. Gotta clean it up, and move the rig over to an adjacent wall.

    Good lawd, Dave, I bet you have to be careful getting those red Craftman tool chests down! Assuming they actually have tools in them :p

    No tools, just some misc. stuff! I have 3 rolling tool chests for the real tools. They are there mostly for display. I learned that lesson at the old house when I dropped a full toolbox on my Harley, putting a nice dent in the fuel tank! :smile:

    Lol Mike! Yep I'm a big Craftsman guy. Dad was too, so that's where that came from. I still have his 1/2" socket set and Toolbox. I actually rebuilt the ratchet wrench, back when you could buy replacement parts. Not so true nowadays. Most of them are just throw away.

    Got the 2nd crossover upgraded for my 7Bs and ready to be popped into the left speaker. The one in the right has had about a month of burn in and is starting to sound really sweet! Can't wait to hear how it sounds when they are both burned in and the system is back to being balanced! Totally worth the money.

    Sounds that are very low in the mixes are now highly discernable, breathing new life into everything I've heard so far. Also the soundstage is total air! Attack times of instruments seems improved. Shimmer of cymbals is pretty out of this world.........words fail lol.

    It’s all good man - I’m just glad they found a home where they would get some use. They were just sitting under a sheet in my basement:-)

    They are one of the nicest looking bookshelf speakers I’ve seen, and they sound pretty damn good too.

    Kind of looks like AV1260 but the picture isn't clear enough to read it for sure.
