Default Ok we all love Miatas, but anyone into audio?

We spend a lot of time and engery on our cars, but anyone doing as much with their home 2-channel rig or their home theater? Tunes Baby!

Here is a picture taken recently during an audio meet at my house. The speakers on the stools and the chip amp on the floor were part of the demo and not my regular system.

Man I wish I lived in a nice place where I could justify a nice setup (and the money to make it happen.)

I went to three garage sales and spent a combined $50 to make my 36" TV, DVD + VHS, tuner/amp, and twin tower speaker setup.

It is ghetto.

It still rocks.



Seriously, we are working on a nice setup in the bedroom, it has started with a Sharp 32" HDTV and JBL speakers.

I think we have the same TV.

My audio is a cheap 5.1 computer speaker system. All my TV/movie watching comes from my computer via HDMI.

The tv is a Samsung LN52A750. It even recognizes my wife's iPod.

My wife and I just bought a cheapy Costco Panasonic surround set up for the TV with "wireless" rear speakers. Of course wireless simply means you have to run wires to the speakers from the wireless receiver unit. Hard to hide that crap.

Does make a huge difference in sound vs the TV's speakers.

My 2 channel rig in the living room uses DIY speakers. Again picture taken during the same audio meet. Yellow tube amp on the black isolaiton table on the floor I built and is not part of the system.

42" 1080p Panasonic plasma with a Yamaha 5.1 surround system with active sub. DirecTV HD DVR and PS3 both hooked up via HDMI for video and with sound sent to my receiver with optical.

Probably not the best setup for true audiophiles, but works fantastically to me.

Holy hell Wardsweb that looks like a really nice turntable. The platter looks huge. I am guessing that is for RPM stability. Reminds me of that turntable they showed in one of the Tomb Raider movies during the foyer sexy bungee cord workout. I only noticed it because Jolie's ***** were not in frame at that moment.

There are many roads to nirvana. While the ultimate goal may be the destination, don't forget to enjoy the ride.

The ONLY person who has to like your system is YOU.
