Something else to consider... With this Danibos Bluetooth receiver, and Tidal's music app on my Samsung S5 phone, I have near CD quality from my armchair and I can control the volume and track selection with my phone. You can use whatever music app you want (like Pandora, Slacker, etc) for free but the sound quality isn't as good. Tidal's hifi version costs $20/month.

Hey Matt, I am starting another set of Blues bookshelves (this time a gift for my younger brother)

Thanks for all of your help last summer! They still sound great!

I will let you know if I have any questions. I am planning on doing everything the same except I am doing 45 degree joints instead of butt joints. (Dont worry internal volume is maintained) and I am going to do veneers instead of paint.

Hey Matt, I finished the second round of Blues! They sound really good. And I definitely improved my craftsmanship this time around. I used veneers to finish them (it was my first time using veneers but overall I am happy with how they turned out.)

Now I am finally gonna build that subwoofer to go with them!

That TM looks great ! What does the sound compare to in a store bought speaker ? Is the MTM much different in sound quality ?
