    I dont have much room, so I only have my PC.

    I just use a Sherwood A/V receiver with a Pair of Yamaha NSC90 speakers.

    Although when I'm sorted I've 2 FS & 2 bookshelf Eltax speakers that will form part of my A/V system ;)

    Well, I suppose it's a hi-fi :p

    My PC with an M-Audio FW410 external soundcard
    Spirit Folio 16:2 Mixer
    Samson 85WPC amp
    2 x JBL Monitor 4208 speakers

    Also got quite a good Sony mini system knocking around, but I don't have the space for it at the moment. If I ever re-acquire some I might set it up for surround sound with my main system :)

    Downstairs is an Arcam Alpha 6 feeding an Audiolab 8000A / Mission 753 (the big floorstanders from the early 90's)

    In here is the PC, Sony TA-FE570, Mission 771e

    (specs below)


    From top to bottom:

    Denon TU-260L Tuner
    Sony JE-520 MD deck
    Pioneer DV-646A DVD player

    Arcam Alpha 8 Amplifier
    Arcam Alpha 7SE CD player

    Denon DRM-650S Tape deck

    Overall, I'm happy with the system. I have the DVD deck plugged into an Acer AL732 17" TFT sceen, which looks pretty good.

    My only problem is that the amp is much too loud for my small room. The lowest possible volume level is too high for background music.

    The speakers I have are a pair of Mission 731i. These are not really appropriate for the rest of the system, especially DVD-Audio. A dealer has suggested a pair of Dynaudio Audience 42Ws. They sound great in small rooms, are mounted close to the wall, and are very insenstive and so will need a powerful amp to drive them, hopefully solving my volume problem! Only thing is, they cost about £450..... I havent heard them yet either, but plan to soon.

    Oh yeah, and a pair of Sennheiser HD-600 headphones which I really hate. Good thing I didnt pay full price for them.

    Very nice :cool:

    The audiolab 8000A is no-where near powerful enough for those speakers... but no other amp (at the time) came close to the detail and quality at low/medium volumes for the price. The only thing you can play really loud on the system is dance music where the 'harshness' doesn't matter too much.

    I've not got a stereo here (have an AIWA Z-L70 or ZL-70 in my room at home which is never used though).

    Here I just have my PC for playing music. I connect this upto my Marantz PM4200 which is connected to my Mission 773e's.

    Does me :D

    You'll get a much better sound if you seperate them about 12 foot :)

    I haven't got a hifi now, I mainly use my Archos Multimedia Jukebox and then sometimes bang it through a 5000 watt PA system.

    Arcam Alpha 7SE
    NAD 314 amp
    Mission M72 speakers
    Rega Planar 3 with £300 cartridge
    Technics RT474 twin tape deck

    I have a Denon DRA-455 (after my cheapy Cambridge A5 died) with some KEF Cresta 2s at the moment, I also have a cheapo Technics SLPG-4 CD player which is elsewhere and not in use. QED Silver anniversary bi-wire cable as my trusty mains cable didn't really fit Denon's horrible speaker terminal connections.

    Musical Fidelity A1 (heavily A-class biased amplifer :))
    Plugged into my PC
    Eltax Liberty 5+

    Very happy with the Musical Fidelity amp, and the speakers were also excellent for £99. I would like to get a decent CD player to go with the system soon, however. Also, in films, sub-bass is severely lacking from the Eltax, so a subwoofer + amp will be in order soon enough (i'm looking at building my own active sub). :)
