Despite all the vinyl stuff, this is a wholly digital system. The analog signal from the phono preamp is digitized at 24/96 in the Metric Halo. After DSP, including digital crossover and room correction, the signal is sent into the Conrad Johnson amps which biamp the speakers. The Overkill Encore speakers are crossoverless, and designed for biamping. More arms and PUs than space on the Verdier. Something is always in the drawer.

Yes, those are Mangers. They are placed in rubber cradles on top of the woofer cabinets. The cradles can be freely placed on top of the cabinets to optimise the total impulse response.
Beside them, on the inner end of the cabinets, you see a pair of Tannoy supertweeters.


Great looking system tkr thanks for sharing! Is that a Manger driver I see in your Overkill Audio speakers?
