Alright. Amp is in, and I'm in love. Right away, it's a clear difference compared to what it was before. Highs are clear, you can tell I actually have a sub. Everything is just crisp. It absolutely sounds like a new system, and it is 100% worth the coin/time/effort. Music doesn't sound depressing, but alive. Here's a cpl pics he sent, as well as a vid that I recorded with my wife's iPhone 6s. And for the record, I didn't know Jesse did this kind of work until Fuzzy mentioned it, nor am I getting anything for a review. This guy did great work transforming a system I thought I was going to have to gut completely. Lemme know if you have any questions.
