Default Re: Your sound system

I was expecting most to use headphones/ipods. So I guess I was wrong. I like big stuff the bigger the better.

I posted this on another forum recently but since you asked here and say you like the big stuff, here goes:

My system is older and currently in storage but here are pics I collected from the 'net:

Acoustic Research AR-9 speakers (these weigh 150lbs each)


GAS Son of Ampzilla amp


GAS Thoebe preamp


Technics SL-1500MK2 turntable


Grace F9L cartridge

That is one sweet system. I have an sl-1500 but mine is manual. Those AR-9's are very nice! Do you have a tuner to go along with all that?

I'm using a USB 7.1 Logitec head phone for the secret stuff and a Creative ZXR with 5.1 large speakers for loud gaming and music. With my triple monitor setup it is hard to capture the speakers on camera so it might take some time to do so.

7.1 off the sound system. Rocks the house and so clear for smaller speakers.
10.1 off the computer. Not hooked up. Not yet...

The tone arm on my turntable has a cuing lever and is damped but that's as close to automatic as it gets.

Yamaha T-1 Tuner



I also have this Audio Control C-101 graphic equalizer

Maybe you've never seen/used records? LPs? Vinyl?

Nope, but I know it's usually wood or plastic trimmed (if the description is correct) not in chrome or shiny metal like many electric ovens.

But yeah, seen them only on the media. I'm not that old to have used/seen them directly here

Most Technics turntables look like that. And many young people play vinyl records. Plenty of new artists are releasing on vinyl.

Amazon Best Sellers: Best Vinyl
