    12-29-2004:
    I checked through like 5 or 6 pages and didn't see any thread like this, I was just wondering what kind of set ups you guys have, home and/or car.

    Since my driving privs have been well, iffy lately, I got a music set up going:

    Harman Kardon HK3480 Reciever
    Paradigm Studio 20 v.3 Bookshelf Speakers (x2)

    When I get money I think I will be buying a Klipsch rsw-10 subwoofer, if anyone knows anything of the similar price range thats better for music let me know.

    Edit: My how the times have changed:

    Receiver: Yamaha RX-V1600

    Fronts: Paradigm Studio 100 v.4s

    Sub: HSU Research VTf2MK2

    DVD: Denon DVD-3910

    Amps: Twin Outlaw Audio Monoblock 2200s on fronts

    Rears: Paradigm Studio 20 v.3

    TV: Same old toshiba CRT, looks pretty good for a dated TV

    Cable: Canare with bananas for fronts, canare RCAs, bargain cable on rears



    Oh and POST PICTURES OF YOUR SET UPS.

    (ill edit in some pics of my shit later.)

    Yamaha RX-395 receiver
    Yamaha CDC-665 changer
    Audiosource EQ-100
    BIC Venturi V62 bookshelves
    Polk Audio R20 bookshelves
    Yamaha SW-50 subwoofer

    Lots of old stuff, tho. The subwoofer is still going strong since I got it in '95, and the receiver, BIC's and changer are from 1997. Sounds decent enough for right now though. When I do get the willpower/funds to upgrade, I'll probably spring for some B&W DM604's and a NAD or Marantz receiver. Who knows, though. I change my mind when it comes to audio every 17 seconds, it seems.... :)

    Rainbow is really good. The speakers I got are the second to lowest model but they rock. I can pump the volume up with no problems at all. I don't have the biggest of amps powering it either but the sound is awesome.

    H/U: Pioneer DEHP8000R (still works like a champ so why change it)
    X-over: JBL GTX47 w/ imaging enhancer
    Front: These change quite often (in the last 3 months I've used Alpine Type R and Type X, Orion P6.2, Diamond M661, Pioneer REV series, Memphis SYNC and SQ, Phoenix Gold Xenon series, MB Quart QSD and PCE 216, and Boston RC series. All components)
    Rear: Pioneer Rev Series coaxials
    Amps: Right now I am using two vintage Clarion amps APX 400.4 and 200.2
    Sub: Elemental Designs 12k.14
    Wiring: Tsunami, Monster Cable, Stinger
    Optima Red Top

    I'm thinking it's about time for another overhaul though. I get bored far two easily.
