I have a headless mac mini in the study which runs iTunes (and used to run the UPnP server for the NDX) and shares my library to various Macs and iDevices in the house. It also runs the Devialet AIR application which intercepts any audio feed on the mini and squirts it out over my wired network to the Devialet.

Looks great Adam. The Sonneteer gear seems to have a well deserved following on here.

Always love your setup. My CD racks are similar except white in color. People talk about seeing their music at a glance with computer audio...after you page through. With music in racks in your room you can truly see it all at a glance. Well done.

A few of my system, including the now-obligatory ATC soft-dome shot. The system's not in any way "tweaky", just a simple setup that gets the job done. No fancy PSUs, just the standard wall-warts. The anti-mode is acting as DAC for the SBT via optical.

You can see the rats nest of signal/power/ethernet cables behind it in some of the shots, and Horrors! a Powerline switch, which makes no difference at all to sound quality

The CD player is there, but I've probably used it twice in the last 12 months.

Looking good, Adam! That's quite a CD colletion you have build.

Although I'm used to streaming, for the last 4 years or so now, there's something cool about a large CD-collection stored in a dedicated piece of furniture imho.
(and I'm probably a dying breed of people who even prefer the good old IR remote over swiping, ticking, choosing my music on an Ipad/pod/phone/tablet)

James,
You have plenty of room on those empty shelves for Alfie's toys now that you don't need those superfluous boxes.

Thanks.
For a while I was considering streaming, but decided to stick with a CD player and CDs. They look good and for me - they require less hassle (e.g. ripping, tagging, backups). I have also found that when listening to Spotify or iTunes - I tend to skip from song to song, rarely I listen to whole albums, it's good for exploring new music, but physical media are better for experiencing music.

Someone please start a fresh thread for the equilateral triangle speaker positioning thing, it is a valid topic (and for that matter one I always adhere to - I've set every system I've ever owned up in that manner!). I just want to keep aggression, egos etc well off this thread. Apologies to those whose perfectly polite, correct and well meaning advice got caught in the crossfire.
