Last year:

The hd580s are on the headboard above the top of the picture, the Sony mdr7509 are in the leather bag on the desk, a 61key keyboard and a guitar are opposite the desk

New set up in a month, with a much better room and better gear (hd650, 88key controller, maybe more). Door is always locked, and only my roomates have keys

Glad to see that I am not the only person who uses the natural keyboard

Some nice gear for college students. I would be afraid my roommate came home drunk with a few buddies and trashed my gear.

That's why YOU go out with your room mate and the buddies and come back drunk, and then it's your fault when you break something (but I never had this problem and I came back drunk at least several times )

I had a single freshman year, and will have a single for my remaining four years--it's ideal given the value of my gear.

I'm generally rather reserved whilst in an altered state of mind. So such complications were generally not an issue!

Plus, I had no roommate for most of the year. Brilliant.

I went to a Christian school where I never locked a door and lived with 3 other guys...there is something about morals and values that can build comfort

Ha ha, I know what you mean. I went to a Christian middle school, and I asked where the lock was for the lockers and they said no one locked them. I was like :
A different world. One for the better obviously.

i don't think i could do a single... i would get so damn bored! even though i do have quite a lot of money in the form of all types of equipment/goods in my room... i'm not too worried. i keep the majority of it all locked down and am cautious about it.

to take the extra step though, i think i'm going to get my stuff insured, just in case.

I'm moving into a dorm in about three weeks...

Over the past few years, I consolidated the huge setup (we're talking some 25 feet of table, several PCs and monitors, lots of equipment) I had at my peak of nerdiness into the current 4' wide table I have now. Right now, I have a microatx computer, a big LCD, keyboard and mouse, very small reciever (designed for a CD shelf system, it's a reciever with DVDP that's about 8" wide) and a pair of little Mission m70 bookshelves. Very compact. I'm replacing the desktop with a laptop and docking stand, so I won't have a permanent desktop PC any more. No need for one.

Then I talked to my roommate, and he's brining some ridiculously complex PC setup (I guess that's what I get for going to a tech school) that's obviously going to be really loud and huge. At which point, I decided, to put it elegantly, "**** it, I'm not going to make do with some wimpy little Onkyo just to save room, I'm bringing Jahn's Darth Opto and my BIC speakers"

So, I'm now trying to sell the Onkyo and the little speakers it came with to a friend of mine who is more concerned about space than I am. I figure that when I go, I'll bring the mission speakers and my little Kenwood receiver (which is small enough that I can leave it on my desk under my LCD), and the big BIC speakers, and the Opto. I'll try to fit the big setup in my room, but if I can't, I'll fit the small one in.

Where the heck do you guys put your TV's? Is there a way to set it up so you can watch from your bed or do you pretty much have to get a TV/monitor combo and put it on your desk?

In other words, do you think it's possible to bring my 30in dell and use it as a pc monitor and a 42in westinghouse flatscreen and use that as a tv?
