High End System For Home, SBS Teak Wood Console

I`m currently doing a HIFI system for a home and we designed a classic SBS console in TEAK wood.The entire console and legs is constructed with glue only. My client did not want to see any staple, nail or screw holes filled and sanded, he wanted it in a natural state with no punctures with beefy looking legs. At the bottom of the Reel to Reel section is a 2 RU space for a HHB CD Burner

The console will hold 2 turntables, 2 cdj players, Technics RS 1500 reel to reel, with a Thrive Isolator & 1620 mixer @ his request, In the future he is getting the Thrive Audio Bender program EQ to improve the playback of the system with eq capability per song. We are using Lavry Black dacs, and 3 Mark Levinson No. 331 amps. I will be Modifying Marchand xovers for the control over the system

We are trying different speakers before he decides on what he will use permenantly, at the moment he has Original jbl 4520s with 2225 drivers and TAD TH 4001 wood horns with JBL 2240 drivers. He is has not been happy at all with the speakers in the past with a few different amps & He recently purchased the Thrive Isolator and cant believe the improvements it made on the system but is still unhappy with the limitations this system has.

We will be trying Ausberger tops in Mohagany and Ausbergers subs in black he will most likely decide that these will replace the old JBL set up. The Ausbergers are TAD loaded, 2 TL 1603 for subbass 1 per cabinet, 4 TAD TL1603s for main Bass 2 per cabinet, 1 TAD TD 4001 on a TAD TH 4001 wood Horn. I will be building him mirror image Mohagany cabinets for 2 TAD ET 703 tweeters 1 per side, top end amp is most likely Levinson knowing my clients taste.

I will have better pics when this is installed in his home. Here are some ruff photos
