I appreciate your efforts dude!

That was really an effort. Now that you have the audio guru from Delhi to help you out, that will be sorted out easy.

Keep us posted with your pics!

They offer a complete packaged solution, something i didnt want to do. I am following a DIY approach as much as possible. Besides their software is not what i want, i found Centrafuse to be the best out there (my opinion).

cheers.

Hahaha, nothing that exciting. Updates are a little on hold, i am waiting for the last pieces of the setup to reach me, that will be in a few days. Then i am going on a little vacation to Dubai, so the actual build will take place in january, as soon as i am back.

cheers.

YooHoo no more waiting for my posts to show up , i am a BHPian.

WOW!!! Looks stunning. But it's still a teaser of more to come, I think.

Great finishing job you have got done.
You have to give more details of audio stuff gone in too.
