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 humble system

Screen: 42" Philips plasma, no cable, no satellite, just for playing movies from my media server.
AV source: FreeBSD on a VIA mini-ITX with a Terratec Aureon Sky 5.1 card. Still using plain XMMS for audio as it's still the best player around, Xine for video.
This is connected to a Behringer DEQ2496, which feeds 2 DCX2496 crossovers. Each DCX divides the frequency band in 5 parts into 1 Europower 4000 and 2 2000's.
All that power (well, mostly for the subwoofer towers) is used to drive my open baffle design; a 4 tower 3.5 + 2 loudspeaker system.
