Not interested in HT setups .. only stereo for music. Those
are way too cluttered.

Kit rack is set back from the speakers, rather than 'along 1 wall' so difficult to get it all in one regular photo......

I especially like my bookshelf diffuser.


My stereo cost me 0$, speakers and all.

All sound is handed down or leftovers when others bought other stuff, the stuff was dusting about until I took use of it.

This is my HTPC, PC & Stereo corner.

I use 4 speakers for my 2channel stereo.
Why? The small top one is for middle and highs. The towers are for middle and lower frequencies. One tweeter was busted so I disconnected it on both and used the bookshelf for the highs instead. They are actually wall mountable.
Works OK. Actually sound is horrible each on their own, when combined they beat the single pairs by lengths.
I have 2 other pairs of working 3-ways but this 4speaker 2channel getup sounds better than those. I tried many combos. This was best whit what I had available.

Decent sound on a super cheap budget.

A close up on the towers. The wall-mountable bookshelf is labelled "Picture 13"

Here's mine until I get the dedicated room finished in the basement.

Speakers are the BPT Cirrus which I build and designed. Amp is a D-Sonic 1000 that has all sorts of internal modifications done by Chris at BPT. The USB/Digital convertor is a Emperical Audio Off-Ramp 3, incredible piece! DAC is a Xindak DAC-5, and a BPT CPC for power distribution. All the room treatments are from GIK ... the stand mount ones I put some red LED lights on the back for a nice effect. The wall outlet is a dedicated 20A circuit using 10ga Romex with a Furutech wall plate.

All audio is streamed from a laptop using Foobar.

I wanted the red glow to show so I took this picture handheld with my 12-24mm lens, and a 1/2 sec exposure ... no flash. It's a bit dark and soft, but best I could do for a quickie without setting up the tripod.

And yes, I know the rug needs to go

I dunno, Dave. I think I see a tiny piece of carpet lint on the right speaker.

Jeez, they look terrific, Luther. Really.

yes, old pic for sure .... the center is now a HTM1 to match the 802s, and the DIY preamp is gone for a pass labs X2.5...a Benchmark DAC1 added, and connections all redone as per the schematic I posted above.

Thought so. You should update your thread with some pics. Maybe post yoursetup on Bluray.com. Most if not all that were active in the WYSC thread are there in force now.
