    I recently finished a pair of the m-125s with copper-plated transformer covers, matte-black powder coated chassis, and the octal driver boards.  Also, some of the hardware has been swapped for socket capped screws and cap nuts.  

    I have yet to listen to them on a proper set of speakers. I was just excited to share the fresh build!  This was a super fun kit, the instructions were very thorough and easy to follow.  I only wish I could build more Smile

    Thank you Dave_in_Va! I definitely improved when I wired the second amp. I think that part of the clean wiring appearance comes from the matte black chassis.

    That is a gorgeous build. Top notch workmanship, and great photos. So tell us what it sounds like? If you could share what is your reference in comparison to other setups. Thank you.

    PS - the M125 is my want. I just have to deal with other needs at the moment. In all due time.
