    Not much quality gear here, saving up for something a little better,






    That's a 120MM fan.



    heh. Yes thats a 250W Car amp being powered by a 200W FSP PSU, you can see the two speakers in the background.

    freeagent the placement of your speakers makes me cry I'm guessing you are in tight quarters and it can't be helped, but seriously 1/2 the quality is gone before the speaker even 'speaks'.

    How are you running that anyways? I see 2 sets of front mains and a sub? 2.2.1?

    yessir, shes pretty tight in this area they do good about 11 inches from the wall, and 7 feet apart. the smaller missions i only turn on for movies heheh if i kick my chair back about 5 feet or so they sound decent, but not like before. i used em on my old adcom system that i had setup downstairs. the only reason i have this the way it is, is because my dog will not go down to the basement, i am a celler dweller when she was a pup, she slid off of the top of the stairs and took the express route down, and pretty hard too.. since then she avoids those stairs like the plague. she is a great dane, so i guess now that shes taller, it seems higher, or something.. thats something only caeser can answer

    and yes, it is a 2.1 setup i found this hk3400 at a pawn shop for 100 bux! i have its older brother in the basement, its an h/k 550vxi, both are the high current, high voltage model, but the 3400 has a sub output

    Here's the current total package. Speakers aren't connected to anything atm. I used to have a harman kardon AVR controlling and powering my 2.1 HK/Velodyne setup, but when I got this new headphone gear it totally destroyed the HK stuff in quality so I don't even use it anymore and moved it out.

    I'll be moving from my apt to a house in a month or so, so my place will change quite a bit

    Wow, thats pretty intense everyone... I was just about to start looking for some smaller headphone amps. I'm thinking about grabbing some HD 650s. Or Berdynamic 770s.

    Might have to go troll some on head-fi.

    At least he has more separation than I do. My setup is incredibly cramped right now.

    FINLAND. EVERYTHING IS EXPENSIVE HERE.
    I don't really have any super system, but I have a quite nice amplifier, A Luxman A120 MK2, which I use to drive a 150W Pioneer sub:





    Those are some heatpipes:



    Specs:
    2x120W or 1x300W bridged
    >110dB SNR
    15Hz-100kHz (Yes, 100 000Hz. Pointless, but a great penis extender )

    Unfortunately, I managed to bust a cap in it a little while ago, so I'm awaiting a bunch of new ones. I run my sub off of a totally awesome 2x30W AKAI reciever with one broken channel until it's fixed.

    For my mid/treb speakers (stereo) I run an old half-mediocre Pioneer SA-330. It's decent enough, but not exactly super.

    I'll post pics of my speakers tomorrow.

    I fold in honor of those who fight the same deadly battles as my uncle Peter Flinck once did. May he rest in peace.

    I should really try once I get it back up and running. I'm not sure my speakers will do that high tones, though

    EDIT: Speaker pics:

    My 30W Tandberg mids, 6". They do have tweeters, but I don't use them, as the high-pass filters are broken In a way it's good, as they aren't optimally placed for high tones.



    These are my tweeters. The boxes come from an old TV, and are actually really good. The whole side is covered by a filter board. The ~2.5" speakers are ripped from some bigger floor-standing ones with busted boxes and woofers. About 20W nom.



    This is my sub. It was in a car accident. Aside from two cracks in the cone (thus the duct tape), it has no issues. Not a bad speaker for being free. 150W RMS.

    And these are my current amplifiers. The temporary """""bass""""" amp on top. It's got ok-ish sound, but, well, with 30W it isn't gonna drive a 150W speaker very good. SNR on the Pioneer isn't exactly great, though.



    As you can see, this system isn't exactly state-of-the-art, but I haven't paid even one cent for it, and with the right EQ settings, it can achieve some pretty impressive sound.

    And the busted cap in my Luxman :

    This is my bedroom setup. It's a bit cramped and a small room, but I managed to make everything fit and sound amazing. The speakers are Ellis 1801 sealed speakers finished in Pau Ferro wood by Jim Salk (of salksound.com.) The sub in the corner (barely seen) is a Rhythmik F15, a 15" servo sub. I am using a Crown XLS 402 (400w at 4ohms) pro amp to power the speakers and my old Yamaha rx-v2400 receiver as a pre/pro. I am using the optical out from my chaintech av-710 to my receiver. And late at night I use my trusty Grado SR-225's hooked up to my receiver's headphone out.
