More to follow. I promise.
Awfully clever designs nowadays; speakers posing as paint-pots (Do hope you're putting in a dedicated feed while you're about it).

That's really very nice BenS, can I ask what the coloured shelves are from and if they hold CDs?

As the owner of matching stereo cats, I feel that your mark twos have the edge; also the youthfulness !

Thanks, they are cd units. They came from Aram store on Drury Lane. I'm afraid I can't remember the manufacturer. I love the look of them - like a mini Don Judd!

Mdac bottom left and a pair of Tag 125ms under the laptop. Out of sight are an Avondale TPX and MSX and a modded nAim Prefix.

Must say my noise floor is wonderfully quiet now, but it obviously needs a carpet. And yes, there are three independent circuits. One dirty for transports, lamps, appliances, and two for the analogue electronics of each system in there.

Ahhh. My sister has a Bengal, and indeed they are a handful! He constantly meows too and it is not a soft soothing sound either!

Cute cats; we have two Bengals as well. Lovely and loving, albeit overly energetic cats. Give them plenty of scratching alternatives, and force them to accept getting their nails cut on a regular basis. Our male will now gladly sit in my lap, present his nails and politely meow for them to be cut. The female is a much more difficult case.

in my room the speakers are Castle Conway 3's. (slightly modified)

the room kind of has to be this way around at the moment. I agree that there are holes in bass response, and imaging is a problem as well. But theres no possibility of it being the other way around.

I'm likely not going to be living here for more than a few more months anyway, so its just a temporary solution

Second modest system

Built up over the past year. The amp is an Audio Space AS-2i at about 12w per channel I think. The DAC is an Abrahamsen with balanced and unbalance outputs, USB input A-Sync. Now the speakers I bought from Ebay, but the guy who made these crackers lives near in Huddersfield so I popped over listened to them with some of my music and took a chance that the sound would open right up after burn in, and it did in spades. They are a DIY design front ported with a very high quality crossover. I am not sure but I think he said that they are inspired by ProAc but hey imho they sound great for the dosh.
If I get the opertunity to meet at a local bakeoff I will take the gear to see what the guys think. Anyway all this lot was obtained for approx 450.
All the music is from my PC using foobar2000 and installed plugin WASAPI for output to DAC.

What's the unit between the DAC and the Power amp. Looks like a modern version of a Lecson preamp ? Whatever it is it looks fantastic.

Edit - just found it http://www.pinkfishmedia.net/forum/s...d.php?t=106295
