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.

We have two sound system setups .. the TV in the living room, and the stereo system in the sitting room.

Stereo: Philips 765 CD Burner, Sony 5-disc CD changer, Sony dual tape deck, and JVC stereo receiver. I hope to get my old Onkyo TX27 repaired, though, since I think it's better for headphone use. I have a pair of 10 year old JBLs for speakers. Yup, just stereo. :-)

TV setup: Vizio VX37 LCD 37" TV, ReplayTV 5040, Comcast DVR (Motorola DCH 3416, I think), XBox 360 for games and NetFLix, pair of el cheapo DVD players (both Magnavox, and both under US$40 at Walmart). We just use the TV speakers here for now, but once the above Onkyo receiver is fixed, I plan on moving the JVC to the TV area and getting some real speakers.

Most of the time I use my Rockboxed Gigabeat F40 to listen to music, though, or I'll stream music from the LAN via TVersity and the XBox360, but the sound isn't that good through the TV speakers.
