    As this forum doesn't allow members to add a signature to the bottom of posts to show what kit they're using I thought that it would be interesting to have a thread to see what equipment you guys/gals are using.

    Im glad we aren't all showing what we've got. Thats because mine is nothing special nor do I seek anything wonderful.

    Raspberry Pi 2 and IQ Audio DAC as for the rest no burglars adverts here.

    Went without a system for a couple of months but have made a few acquisitions of late...

    Arcam Alpha 5 / Sony CDP-991


    Arcam Delta 290


    Castle Severn MK.I / Rega ELA MK.I

    Unbelievably the total cost for all components has been less than £200... We've never had it so good when it comes to s/h hifi.

    linnfomaniac83 I bet you can’t wheelie a unicycle!

    The A 5, Delta 290 and Castle Severns should work beautifully together, the ELAs will work well too but really shine on the end of naim and surprise, surprise... Rega kit.

    It's ok you don't have to post your address if you don't want to. ;)

    I find it interesting to see what people are using and Googling the stuff that I don't recognise.

    I must admit to being rather impressed with both Arcam & Castles... Very underrated (by me anyway!) The Delta is up there with any integrated I've ever owned & the Castles really suit my matured musical taste, last time I owned Castles (Conway II's) it was all rock/metal and they didn't like it :D

    The forum does allow seeing signatures.

    You have to enable this feature though using User CP.

    Yes, they went a few months back, I prefer the Rega's so they will be back in long term when they back off loan.
