**CURRENT PICTURES** as of 12/13/2015 - the rack pictures dont show all the new items just yet, because these pictures were taken about a month or two ago. Hard to get time to take good pics with 2 kido's running around




























**pics updated 12/10/12 to fix broken links**
**pics outdated as of 2/28/2014**

My old room I truly miss configuration wise!







Here are some pics of the cable management in the rack. I managed to keep ALL the power, HDMI, IC's and Speaker wire totally separate. Took a bunch of doing, but its done for a LONG LONG LONG TIME.

**Update 05-13-2016**

The desk is gone, the Salamander rack is being delivered to the new owner on 05-21 so the room is a bit more empty. Don't have pics of that yet. I hardwired the entire setup by running a 100 foot Cat 5e ethernet cable from the master around baseboards, up the inside of the master closet, across the entire house via the attic, down the inside of the loft closet and then around baseboards to terminate in a Netgear 5 port switch.

Added some new gear in so put up some new rack pics. I still plan to find some decent speakers and on 5-22-16 I will be acquiring a new sub that I will convert to a downfiring endtable sub similar to the one in the HT. Parts are all ordered for that and I will add a separate build thread for it with final pics here.

I am also looking at bookshelf speakers in the under 600 dollar range. Specifically some Energy RC-10's (used), DIY Speedsters (would require a full build), DIYSoundGroup options (Volt-6, Fusion 6), as well as potentially the Wharfedale Denton 80th Anniversary or Wharfedale Diamond 10.2 speakers.





This shows you how its cornered but the equipment is laid out like above.



Again, remove the desk and equipment rack as both are sold and gone. The rest of the stuff is in the same location.







**Update 03-20-2016**

So I decided to go all in on my HT and move away from 2 channel. I downsized my rig, adjusted my room layout to be more conducive to a kids living room which is what it will be.

We bought some furniture off a Facebook garage sale group and eventually are going to get a small TV and entertainment center and my Salamander rack will go away...

I'm sad to lose my space, but it was my decision and as @dskip put it "You have the system for the way you live right now"....

I will get back into a serious 2 channel setup at some point, but honestly if this cheap setup works better for my family and can keep my kids still enjoying music like they do.... I'm ok with it...

Some picture of where it was, how it morphed, and where it is now...

When we first moved in



After settling in for a bit..





Flirting with greatness, but alas it was not a match made in heaven:





After some small changes to the equipment





After some additional equipment changes:





After selling stuff off in anticipation of the changes:



And after the delivery of the chair and couch and installation, and the rest of the gear we are left with the first set of pics in this post.

**Pictures outdated as of 08/23/2015**

I've been lazy getting pictures posted because the setup isnt fully "done" yet and with kido #2 coming its been hard to find any time to do stuff OTHER than in the Nursery. I have 4 2x4 soundproof panels I need to finish and hang and lots of furniture needed for this setup. But here it is..

Just wait till I get the vintage game console section bulit. Plan on a roll away 4 tall 2 wide rack to fill with the older gen consoles like Xbox, sega genesis, super nintendo, Nintendo, etc. They will be connected to a switch my harmony one remote can control and when in use get rolled into the middle of the room and connected to the front inputs of the Integra. When not in use it will double as a endtable on the far side if the chair and a half

Yup, its my wifes
. In order to get her to let me play Halo more I bought her an account and then got her a Pink Xbox 360 controller and pink wireless headset. It worked for a bit till I started to get my rank to what it should be in Halo (ended up as a Mythic when Halo 4 came out) and she couldnt compete with the other players when playing mutliplayer.


I actually need to buy myself a new controller as all the ones I normally use are no longer responsive enough cause I use them too much. Thinking one of the Halo 4 models.

Yup. It also helped that my entire family (brother, sister, brother in law, uncle, father) all play. My sister, brother-in-law, wife and myself played through Halo Reach on co-op together and that way quite fun.


My dad is getting his own Xbox 360 4 gig system with wireless controller for christmas from my mom along with Halo 4 from my sister and I. I also found my mom a good enough deal on the console that my mom was able to buy him a standard headset along with a 32 gig USB drive to store everything on (since the 4 gig system just isnt enough to really play Xbox on).

I should also note for folks that stumble across this thread that if you are looking at buying Kimber Kable products make sure you either buy from an authorized local dealer or one of the two online dealers (NeedleDoctor and AudioAdvisor). Due to the way Kimber Kable products look (specifically their speaker cables and interconnects) there are apparently a lot of fakes out there so be wary. I purchase the Kimber Kable Hero interconnects from a person on another forum and he thankfully was willing to send me a copy of his invoice from AudioAdvisor to show they were indeed legit. That and I got a really really good deal on them (60% of their retail cost) that was too good to pass up, otherwise I was going to get their PB&J interconnects.


After talking to a bunch of people around I was told the Hero's are better but that the PB&J's are still a very good value and you could go from Hero's to PB&J and retain 80% of the quality.


Another tip from someone who has spent waayyyy to much time re-orgainizing their rack, put your best components as close to your reciever as possible so that when you upgrade your cables you can get really high quality cables that are short, rather than mediocre ones that are longer. I find anything over 1m and it starts to get really cost prohibitive to get high quality HDMI and RCA interconnect cables.


I specifically put the laserdisc player as far away as possible as I dont use it as often so lower quality cables are fine with me, and put the Xbox 360, Uverse, and blu-ray player as close as I could. Its also why I moved the Carver amp to directly below the Integra.

So like most of us, I am a member on multiple audio websites. One of those sites was running a RIDICULUOUS Karma, a FREE TUBE AMP. The amp was originally housed in a 1962 Custom Electra V Console. It is a Fisher 460A EL84/7247 amp. It was totally re-wired and better tubes were added to it. The amp was donated by one member and rebuilt by another.


To make a long story short, after a very unique Karma picking method on New Years day, I was the EXTREMELY LUCKY WINNER!


So I have started getting my learn on about tubes and am STOKED that this baby will be mine. It wont run low ohm loads so no LSis. I will probably stick to running it on 8 ohm loads but am looking forward to playing around with tubes.


So I thought I would share some pics with you guys. The only sucky thing is that I am out of town all this week for work so I won?t get to play with it till this weekend at the earliest?.


These pics are from the awesome guy who did all the work on it.






This last one is a nude pic so keep the kiddies eyes away :wink:

Finally got the Polk RTA 11TL's and got em hooked up this evening. Had to leave suddenly but the few mins I got with em was HEAVENLY.


Looking forward to as much time as I can get with em.


My setup right now is all digital. I am using XBMC as my Media Player to send out the FLAC files via ASIO to the Audio GD NFB-5 via USB. The Audio GD has a variable output that I am using to connect to the tube amp. The interconnects are Audioquest G-Snakes. Nothing special with the speaker wires, just Monoprice 14 gauge for right now.


All the IC's and SC's will be upgraded later when I have extra cash.

I love older console setups. I typically use MAME to recreate the experience, I know, it's not the same, but I just need wireless control.....

Hey my friend, let me be the first to say congrats. Kids are the best DIY project ever! Only drawback is you have to wait a long time to see how it all turns out. LOL As a father to two boys 14 and 17 take it from me they grow up so fast. Glad to hear that baby and momma are doing well. Get lots of sleep now, as you won't be getting much the next few days, weeks, months, years.

So what do you do on your 30th birthday... You re-organize your setup for the last time.


This setup is the most compromised setup in regards to speaker cable runs so I will be making some of my own DIY cables using Audioquest FLX 14/4 wire paired down to 11 gauge for each binding post. Still unsure what IC's I will be going with, Douglas Connection or Kimber Kable PB&J's. Either way the longest IC run is actually from the Harman Kardon Citation 11 pre-amp to my Sunfire TGP-II and I will be going with Blue Jeans Cable LC-1's or the Audioquest Sidewinders on sale (14 footers).


Here is the gear actually connected:


Sources:

Denon 3910 via RCA

Computer via Meridian Explorer (3.5mm to dual RCA)

TT via Harman Kardon Citation 11


Pre-amp: Sunfire TGP-II


Amp: NAD 2600 (on loan from IndyHawg)

Fisher 460t tube amp (in need of repair)

Carver M1.0t (in need of repair and going in the main HT when working)


Speakers: Polk RTA 11TL's (stock) with Meniscus Audio spikes


Speaker Wires: Partially Oxidized Monoprice

Speaker IC's: Radio Shack till replaced


I will get better pics when I get some time, these were just shot quick so I can get to bed..

So my wife was out with her friends on Friday leaving me home with Skye. I had just gotten in some cables from DouglasConnection to demo, specifically his 9 gauge cables and 2 sets of jumpers. I also have 2 sets of interconnects coming in from him so I can have a full setup of his cables. I will be reviewing these for him over the course of a couple weeks and putting them against my Kimber Kable Hero IC's and Kimber 8VS internally bi-wired speaker cables in my downstairs setup.


To start with though I decided this was the best time to just sit and really re-organize my setup in the office as I was using just cheap Monoprice speaker wire. I had a entertainment center with 2 shelves I wasnt really utilizing right and a equipment rack that I just couldnt seem to find a way to incorporate right with the rest of my gear. So I went to work and from the hours of 10:30 - 1 got everything moved around. I managed to bring all my gear out and have it in the room, even if its not plugged in.


I also managed to re-work things so that I can actually get a decent set of speaker cables in there and not need a 15 foot cable for one speaker and a 6 foot for another one. This means for this setup once Dougs cables move along to the next guy to demo I can hopefully re-use some of the Audioquest FLX 14/4 speaker wire I have already instead of the horrible Monoprice stuff I had been using.


So here is my setup now as it stands. I think this will be where I leave things for at least 6 months :biggrin:. Its the most optimized setup for me. All units are as close together as possible allowing for the shortest runs of IC's and SC's which means less cost and easier to keep cables run properly. I still want a powerconditioner like a Panamax unit to go underneath my Parasound, but for now everythings through a powerstrip. I also hope to upgrade all the powercables as well. I am looking at Cullen Cable, Douglas Connection, Pepster cables (if he is still making them), Audioquest or Kimber. I will wait till I get my conditioner though.

Now you may ask.... what happened to that pretty equipment rack you had Dan..... Well here is your answer, it became my SHOW PIECE/VINTAGE GEAR RACK!!!. This is where I keep my vintage looking pieces, both in use (Turntable, HK) and those units not in rotation right now for whatever reason. It lets me keep them out to show off even when not in use. It needs some more gear in it though, hopefully a nice Marantz integrated, and some good Kenwood and Onkyo pieces too....

Here is what is currently in each shelf from Top to Bottom:


Units
  • Technics SL-B3
  • Harman Kardon Citation Eleven Pre-amp - this unit is actually being utilized for my turntable above it. I can use the EQ switches on the face of the unit (which I like) and its pre-outs to go to the Sunfire
  • Fisher 460t tube amp - needs to be looked at, once fully functional it will sit on top my Parasound to switch between the two for those long demo days
  • Carver M1.0t
  • Yamaha R-300 - my dads original unit that I hope to get refurbed and working to give back to him as a gift. I also hope to replace the cheap case (vinly on pressboard) with a nice custom wood made case
  • Pioneer Laserdisc CLD-D504
