Since the original threads were a little dated, I think it's about time to post a new thread. I also think it's a good idea to consolidate the two threads and have a separate discussions thread.

Post Your Speaker and Headphone Rig's
RULES:
1. If you want to comment, YOU MUST POST A PICTURE. QUOTING SOMEONE ELSES PICTURE DOESN'T COUNT

[DISCUSSION THREAD HERE
] <--- quote and talk all you want in the discussion thread. The object is to keep the picture thread flowing and not littered with quoted pics, o/t chit chat, and red x's.

2. It has to be a pic of "YOUR" rig. Follow general [H] rules on posting. (hotlinked images etc will not be tolerated)

3. Large images are a good thing for picture threads, unless they are HUGE like 2560x1600. Let's keep the size reasonable but don't whine about 1280x1024 images. If you do whine, you MUST post a picture.
The only exception to large images is if your host is horribly slow, for those I will kill the image tag if it slows the page from loading. The link will be preserved though.

4. You have to read the rules.

Here's how I usually get better pictures: ymmv

1. USE A TRIPOD.
2. Try not to use a flash if possible and mess with the aperature settings instead (possible with tripod)
3. Have good lighting
4. Try not to use your cell phone or webcam for a camera.

There's not much to show for my setup, since its mainly my headphones to my computer. Unless I'm downstairs at the HT setup, in which case its just plugged into a half decent receiver. Not really worth posting.

I hereby claim the first post to have a pair of Audiotechnica headphones.

Heres my current complete stereo setup now for my computer, just got my Energy RC-10 bookshelves in a couple weeks ago to complete it. It consists of a Harman/Kardon HK 3485 Stereo receiver thats rated for 150 watts per channel into 4 Ohms which the Energys are rated for 150 watts into 4 Ohms so it works out perfect. Its also paired with a 12" 400-watt Infinity subwoofer when I want some intense bass. The speakers are still in their break-in period but they already sound amazing and put out respectable bass for bookshelves. The speakers have 14 gauge wire running to them but bare ends for now, probably going to get some spade connectors soon. Anyway heres the pics:

Even though my system is nothing special, I'll post it. My cheap speaker stands are completely awesome!



Creative Audigy and Mac Mini on-board out to MAUDIO AV-40 monitors (yup, you spotted two computers).

Headphones are Allesandro MS-1.

And yes, I use a CRT. I'll lose the CRT the day it dies (or some company releases affordable OLED screens).

Here is my setup. Specs are in my signature. The speakers are TDK Tremor S80, I use them mainly for watching youtube and for most of my gaming.

Here's my... well, let's say 'extremely low-budget' setup... First, the "digital section", my PC, combined with a vintage Sony TA-515 stereo amp, and Rogers LS2a/II speakers, behind the monitor, there's a Mission 70c1 center, powered by an Onkyo ES 600 pro:


And the analog rig: a pair of Technics SL 1210 MKII turntables, Ortofon Concorde DJ S pick-ups, Numark DXM-01 mixer, and a pair of Gale 4i SE speakers, the control monitor next to the turntable is home made by Yours truly...

Just moved to a new place and I haven't had a chance to put the rear speakers up yet. Anyway, this is the system in my bedroom. AppleTV, XBOX360, and a mini DVI adapter so I can plug my laptop in and watch Hulu.

Pioneer VSX-D814
JBL Control 1's for front and rear
JBL Control Now for center channel
JBL Venue Series 10" sub

I just picked up a pair of CX500s and really like them, bass is deep but not boomy, just how I like it.

Pink noising for the next few weeks to be burned in. They need 168hrs



And as for my other cans and speakers:

HD555:



MS Avant 914i:

Things guaranteed piss of your neighbors.

AnimeMan nice Grados those are some sweet cans.

I had to install bucking magnets on the Chorus 2's to keep the magnets from sucking the T.V. screen to the sides.

Ouch. Pretty tough act to follow. I'm up for it though :cool:

Got my new 5.0 Rocket RS850's in... The subwoofer is still being made by eD.

Here are some pictures taken mid-install. More to come as the week progresses.

Retro...

An old Pioneer SX-424


And of course, the speaker. (Sorry, it's only the macro)
It's an old speaker made by "Sound Research Labs". It's AWESOME. But I have no clue what's "Sound Research Labs." Well, it's my dads.. Tell me if you know what it is :D

Some sweet setups. Here's mine.

This is my bedroom. I wired it for 7.1 surround sound (my family room is wired for 7.2, but I haven't gotten around to installing it yet, and the dedicated home theater room in my house is a LONG ways off).

PSB speakers all around, Pioneer 50" plasma, Denon receiver & DVD player

Martin Logan sub

PSB surrounds

My office.

Altec Lansing ATP3s for the desktop (I also replaced the 22" Samsung monitor, in case you were wondering)

Old school Sony receiver and Insignia speakers for casual listening

I love the built-in graphic EQ and the multi-function backlit buttons on the receiver :D

Here is my humble speaker setup.

The stereo is a 1998 vintage Aiwa CX-NA909 I picked up for 25 bucks a couple of years ago. Best 25 bucks I've ever spent :D





Yes my wiring is messy.

heres my current speaker/htpc setup... its a set of KRK ST6's and a KRK Rokit10S...









moar info: the ST6's are being driven by the McIntosh 2105 which is hooked up to the McIntosh C26 preamp... the DAC is the Behringer DEQ2496 (which I installed a ZAP Filter in - night and day difference from stock) which is hooked up via optical to the Marantz SR7001 and everything (HTPC/BluRay player) is hooked up to the Marantz via HDMI which also goes to the TV via HDMI... the subwoofer is hooked up to the L+R "center" output of the C26

The McIntosh MC4000 on the wall is hooked up to the 5 channel output of the Marantz when I want to do surround i move around some wires and it drives the two ST6's, the Klipsch in the center, and a pair JBL Control 1's in the rear...

but i rarely bother with the whole surround thing since the DACs in the Marantz dont really sound very good

Compared to everyone's setups, my system is quite sad. But for me, I am very happy with my new sub (Hsu STF 1).. :D
