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.

Naim Nait 5i amplifier
Gale Symphony 400 cable (cheapest 16 gauge cable I could get, I'm not a believer)
Mordaunt Short 906i floorstanders
Roksan Radius V turntable
- Denon DL-304 moving coil cartridge
- Cambridge Audio Azur 640p phono stage
Technics SL-PS7 CD player which I never use
Marantz ST-48 tuner which is a glorified alarm clock
M-Audio Audiophile 2496 (in Debian machine below)

Edit: Forgot my headphone rig.

Little Dot Mk III tube amp
Sennheiser HD-650 headphones


LG 42LH3000 (42" LCD TV which I also use as a monitor)
Debian Lenny on HP ML-110 G4 with MythTV
- Hauppauge WinTV-NOVA-T PCI card
- Matrox G550i PCIe, am going to rearrange things so I can use my nVidia GeForce 8600 GTS at some point
OpenSolaris ZFS machine with six SATA drives for storage
Sumvision MKV 1080p hard drive enclosure/media thingy
Recently retired Sony BDP-S360 blu-ray player (getting BD-ROM)

Edit: Oh and a Logitech Harmony One, which along with heyu and X10, also controls my lights. E.g. when I hit pause on MythTV/Sumvision/Blu-ray, my lights come on. Sweeet.
