*Finally* got around to staining the beast. Some pictures of before, and the first coat. I’ll apply another coat tomorrow as it’s nowhere dark enough for my tastes.
Here’s a before shot

I also finally got a video amp. Hooked it up with a test rig, and it displays perfectly. Even better, frequencies above 15KHz don’t seem to affect the monitor, it doesn’t even display anything until it reaches that level.
