Finished my build
« on: March 13, 2021, 01:40:25 PM »
So I just finished my SEX amp and I am very impressed with it. I really enjoyed the build and learning how my audio equipment works. Everything tested out perfectly on the first try, took me about a month to build the 3.0 and the moreplay. Together they sound incredible. I personally was not a fan of the Alder wood that came with the kit as it did not match the rest of my system, guess I will put them up on the bay. So I build myself custom bases out of a local Black Walnut and I am very happy with the results. Some pictures of the 3.0 right after the build and both the 3.0 and the moreplay in my set-up.

The bases on your BH gear, along with the equipment rack/LP storage and speakers (Lii drivers?) are really beautiful. great work, enjoy.

They are open baffle speakers that I build myself. Based on a very long thread on Audiokarma. I have not found a better sounding speaker and I have been through a lot.

Yup, Lii fast-8's and they are great sounding. They replaced Wild Burro Betsy's that sounded amazing but these are a little tighter.

I love the matching walnut theme on the S.E.X. amp and Moreplay. Beautiful! (I admit I am somewhat biased towards walnut.. So much character and so nice to work with.) The speakers also look fantastic. Nicely done!
