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.

I have a 1x 3TB ZFS raidz NAS that serves:
3x Xubuntu + XBMC media centres (thinking of wiping them and running a bare bones install of Arch - not normally a fan of *buntu but at the time I wanted something quick to install and low maintenance)
1x Xbox classic, soft modded to run XBMC

The TV in the living room is 40" LCD with one of the Xbuntu media centres running as well as Sky+ HD.
All of the other TVs (bar one) are essentially old 17" CRT monitors I had laying around.

Speakers:
* Surround sound (some cheap brand) in the living room
* 1x stereo studio monitors and 1x stereo acoustics in the music studio hooked up to a whole array of music equipment from mixing desks to turn tables.
* 1x cheap stereo speakers in the garage

Everything is interconnected via cat5e and 3 switches.
