    I try...

    My current setup (dorm room)

    2 Fostex FE 103E drivers in Back Loaded Horn enclosures
    1 DD 1008 woofer (use to run a ED e8a)
    1 Behringer CX2310 crossover
    1 Behringer T1953 Tube Preamp
    1 Behringer EP2500 sub amp
    1 ART SLA-1 main amp

    Next setup is gonna be two towers w/ three AA 6.5" mids per tower and an Usher 9950 tweet or a Vifa XT25 tweet crossed over at about 2.5khz. The tower will be 2.5cubes ported to 45hz.

    I'm a poor college student, so I don't have the best speaker setup. I have a 2.1 channel Sony system with subwoofer. I love my headphones though. Some audiophiles would say they're not too great, but they're compact, comfortable, and still have a rich sound. They're Sennheiser PX200s.

    My nicest equipment is a pair of DLK speakers. They were a local outfit that went out of business several years ago.

    Solid teakwood cabinets, they sound awesome the further down you turn the volume :coold:

    definantly an audiophile, unfortuantly also a brokeass college student, right now all I have going for my are my hd280's, a audigy sound card, and a decent cd player (which is still better then shady ipod mp3 rips)...

    just found out headroom.com is located in bozeman where I live so I have to go check them out and lust after some equipment...

    Nakamichi TA-4A Stasis Reciver/Ampliphier
    Mission 775SM Turntable w/ a Shure M97xE cartridge and a Mission Mechanics tonearm (old-school, but it rocks)
    KEF Studio Moniters and speakers
    Audio control EQ

    In my room I have a Logitech 5.1 system, sounds great, but unfortunatly I had to take out my sound card to make room for some airflow in my computer after I added my video card, and so now I have to use the crappy integrated sound :ugh:

    Being a poor college student makes audiophilia difficult, but I try. I've got a pair of Grado SR60s which I listen to as much as possible. They're amazing phones for the price.
