This is essentially a more in-depth sharing of our “System” compared to the “System Photos” thread.
My very good hombre @cardri has inspired me to get off my A$$ and diagram my system in some capacity. While my feeble attempt at this is in no way comparable to the engineering level of work @cardri is capable of, I figured it is a good conversation starter. @Cardri, your next! I know you have posted your block diagrams elsewhere, but let’s get this thread going.
I have to say, the other motivating factor to start this thread was the post from audio enthusiast/reviewer @austinpop. He posted his system topology which prompted an active, and fruitful discussion. Much of the equipment discussion that takes place here in the forum centers around individual components. But we all know how the “System” is defined by a seemingly overwhelming number of variables that collectively create our individual sound signatures. It is both entertaining and thought provoking to look at how each of us makes decisions with regard to equipment selection and layout.
Here it goes… (P.S. Click on the diagram so it presents larger and can be expanded)
