Carver & DIY ESL two channel system

Hi all,
Below is my vintage Carver two-channel system with homebuilt ESL speakers and rack.
The signal path is from a Logitech Transporter into a Behringer DEQ2496 and DCX2496 and (4) Carver TFM-25's driving homebuilt wire-stator ESLs and homebuilt Ripol subs.

The ESLs are hybrids with a unique 'beam splitter' transmission line bass cab. And the stat panels use segmented wire stators that electrically curve the wave front; giving wider and smoother trending dispersion than a curved ESL, or even most conventional speakers for that matter. The details and build photos are shown on my webpage (link below).
