I think these are from DCDIY, along with the homemade ESL.

The Sonist 4 speakers sounded great too, first time I've heard the DeHavilland Mercury preamp. I think the pre had a lot to do with the thick palpable penetrating sound. JA says the little tube amp's volume control illumination ring changed color with power output level. At first I thought that too, but after watching it for a few minutes the colors were just random.

Gee, the room must have been doing something right to attract JA's attention.  But I suspect the sound he heard wasn't just due to the QOL.

Thanks
