    Wink Journeys end...?

    I'm finally happy enough to post my system properly as it's no longer in a state of flux; everything balances and ultimately sound amazing.

    I'm not afraid to admit today my system bought a tear to my eye for the 1st time ever, you might say it's emotional now

    Here it is:



    Can you spot the new additions



    (Above) The beast



    (Above) The beauty



    (Above) Velvet glove



    (Above) Iron fist

    Thanks for looking.

    Martin, I hope you are feeling proud right now because that is one mighty and fine looking system, and if it sounds as good as it looks then it may indeed be 'journey's end'. Now don't forget to throw the ring into the crack of doom Frodo...
