    Default AI-1 My Humble Attempt

    After reading DarqueKnight's posts on his Dreadnought Project I decided to try my hand at it rather than buy one.
    I have not had a chance to do any critical listening, but I wanted to post a few pics. Next on the agenda is to make the cables. So here they are the pics of the first stage.


    Having trouble with pics........ :(
    Coming soon
