Still short on the black panels?

I think he is just showing off some eye candy to keep us interested.  I think he was only short on silver panels, but those came in while he was getting the packing materials.  Was he still needing more black panels as well as silver?

 

Getting closer I think, the random tardy parts are coming together it seems.

All of those colors look amazing but that Seafoam Green would be calling my name.  Nice work Justin.

You and MuppetFace. I believe that colour was a special request.

Nah, I'll hold out for the silver that I ordered. The silver units have the clearest sound, all the others sound colored!

But the black units have the lowest noise floor, complete silence at top volume. So hard to decide between them

The material for the blacks is not pure aluminium, Justin was explaining it is some sort of military surplus (aluminium-based) composite that converts excess noise into electrical energy. Surplus from stealth aircraft? Apparently some sort of radar damping material. Thus the black paneled units need heavier duty grounding to dissipate that energy. One of the side effects is that location services on iPhones become less accurate in the vicinity of the black BHSE. Justin finds that some of the assemblers go missing for hours, reporting "man, I was there all along, you just didn't notice me". Some listeners using black units do comment that "details emerged as if from nowhere" with one French customer finding the 1812 Overture so unsettling that she has only been able to listen to Celine Dion subsequently. The silver is left over from Abrahms tanks & will a direct RPG hit.

Geez, I just cant decide which color sounds best!  

 

Just asked Justin if the seafoams were available... here we go again.  

 

Instead of tube rolling, Im faceplate rolling!

I love my silver face plates, but the blue ones are stunning as well.  My Pico Power is blue so I know how nice the blue finish looks.

The blue faceplates look really good and they're better for Blues, Jazz and Adagios.

Yeah after all : It's the BLUE Hawaii SE

Although, as it's the BHSE, also Black might be admissable.

Of course brown is out of the question, any color associated with poo is a no go :D.
