System Photos!


#1

Would love to see photos of everyone’s system I will start with mine:


Pre - PS Audio GCD
Amp - Pass Labs XA25
Speakers - KEF LS50 (will be adding a larger floor standing when home addition is done and have a larger room)

PS. I searched and could not find a systems photo thread only separate or one off threads. Please move or close if I am wrong.

That looks like a system I’d love to hear!

It has been great. I put it together over the last couple of months. The sound is great in my small basement room (12ftx12ft). I was able to find all the components used so it kept the cost down.

I didn’t realize what I was missing in the music I listen to. Really the imaging was probably the biggest surprise. The clarity and lack of grit has been fantastic as well.


#4

I bet! These are fantastic components.
I also try to go for used gear whenever possible.
What is/are your source(s)?


#5

You deserve kudos for your high value (performance/dollar) choices! I like to think I have similar taste in equipment choices.

Cheers.

Currently using a Mac Mini running my Roon Core. I also have a Sony Bluray player for CD’s but I am in the process of ripping my CD’s. I would like to get a turntable but that will probably be in the future.

This is amazing!!

Great idea. I was looking for a thread like this before on here, and didn’t find one.

Here’s mine…

Love seeing speakers (properly set up) out into the room, like that. Looks like it all sounds good. :slight_smile:


#12

Those speakers and stands look really good together. :grinning: I also like how your the lamp for your turntable looks.


#13

Thanks! It’s been a lot of trial and error and moving all around to get imaging and staging right.


#14

Thank you sir!

The speakers are Sonus faber Venere 1.5’s, and are bolted to the matching stands. The white quartz slabs under them I had custom made. They’re 1.5" thick and weigh close to 20 lbs each.

I love that lamp. I just recently got that and it works like a charm!

Here’s my setup. Gives me a minimum of 1 hour a day of smiles.

Very nice equipment! Now you just need to upgrade your beer preferences :wink:


#18

Hahahaha. @JeffofArabica, I completely agree with you. That sign is just for man-cave style.


#19

I also agree its nice to see other’s kit and how it is displayed.
So here is mine.
The speakers are Von Schwilkert VR-2’s with MasterBuilt by-wire speaker cable.

Yeah, it took me a while to rip my thousand CDs. But somehow I even liked that process. Feeding the machine… Do you use the mini also as Roon endpoint?

Beautiful setup.
