System Photos!

Would love to see photos of everyone’s system I will start with mine:
IMG_1209
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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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.
