Multimedia, AV Let's do some blatant copy/paste from Ars Technica. A few days ago they ran a story called "What's in your home theatre system?". This poll wasn't so much about listing specific speaker types or amplifier models as it was about a number of more recognisable devices you could vote for. Let's copy their idea, but make it more open: what's in your home theatre setup - and list everything, from CD player to DVR to the type of cabling used. Be as anal about is as you want. Read on for my setup.

My setup seems like a weird mixture but it's used everyday and properly maintained. For the parts of it, though, one might wonder what use do I put it to ;-)

Video:
- Television: Sony KV-21FQ10
- Three VHS video recorders: Sony SLV-835/825/815
- DVD recorder: Pioneer DVR-7000
- Funny little picture effects generator: Sony XV-D300

Analog audio input:
- Tuner: Onkyo T-9900
- Cassette deck: Technics RS-B965

Digital audio input:
- CD player: Technics SL-PA10
- MacBook Pro
- An average unbranded PC (64-bit, two cores) with sound card E-MU 0404, running GNU/Linux Fedora
- Two portable sound players/recorders: Sony MZ-RH1 and Nokia N900 :-)

Common point and audio output:
- Preamplifier and A/V remote control: Sony TA-E2000 + RM-P2000
- Amplifier: Technics SU-MA10
- Hand made pair of speakers: Visaton Atlas compact mk3
- Wireless headphones: Sony MDR-RF820
- High-end earphones: Sony MDR-NC300 (keeps reminding me of Akihabara, Tokyo...)

However, my apartment is small enough to force me not to turn amplifier's volume above one quarter of the maximum. So, despite having only 2.0 speakers, my room blows like it's 7.1 :-)

Still have to decide will I add (and how):
- Mac Mini G4
- iPod Shuffle 2G
- Microphone: Shure SM63LB
