    The Shelter's fantastic. What are you using yours on?

    Very nice looking system. And as I have to play "Guess the Avatar" whenever anyone uses a car... Studebaker Silver Hawk? '57/'58?

    Cool car, David! Like Alex, I'm a big fan of classic American cars.

    Since you've got the camera out, you could always take the hood off of your (equally gorgeous) Cary, so I can have a peek-a-boo at its 'bits'

    Lovely motor! (I can see it's a Golden Hawk now from the full picture, I wasn't sure if it was or not from the avatar and figured better to guess a "lower" version than the full monty you've got! )

    Ayre P5xe phono pre



    Cary 306 SACD player





    Mac Mini with Stello U3 USB converter (Airport Express not pictured)



    Focus Audio FP80se speakers





    Zeus sub-woofer



    Obviously I spend a lot of time in this room. Have a few more tweaks, but generally speaking I'm content with what I have.

    Thanks for looking!

    Dave

    Well done Dave! Can you tell us about your little gooseneck TT lamp? Thanks.
    No matter how far you push the envelope it's still stationery..

    Thanks Gavin. It's a Janso Clamp light from IKEA. You can usually find them on ebay or elsewhere for around $20.00. They also make one with a regular base.
