post #15691 of 18464

My desk setup... Still waiting on the nice stuff to arrive. However, I wanted to put together a budget system in an effort to establish a baseline to which I could compare high-end products. In my reviews I will then be able to compare the sound of summit products to the modest equipment I have here. At least the is the plan for now... I have only been listening to the Schiit stack for a few minutes and it is already impressive.

Where can one buy the plastic/glass head? I have that same Ikea lamp myself lol. I love a deep desk, so much more useful space.

No offense Capslow but Brunk: Do you really want to have a glass head in your living room? Why don't you check out first the crystal vodka from Canada. There are two sizes, 700cc and 1700cc if I recall. A lot nicer and stylish.

Someone may not consider a skull as "nicer and more stylish" either. ;) Thanks for the link though!

Forgot to mention: Not willing to pay the full price? Go to ebay and look for an empty one

Speaking of glass heads, my setup has one as well.

 

A lot of new and exciting things have happened to my bedroom rig since I last posted, and there's more on the shelves next to my desk (not seen in these photos).

 

I'll give a hundred dollars to anybody who can correctly identify my new speakers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And as usual, my apologies for the world-class photography.

My guess: DIY Fostex Speakers, custom paint.

Im not sure about Fostex drivers, but it's defInitely DIY.

 

edit actually they may be Fostex, there's quite a few similarities to other models.

You're right about the enclosure being DIY, but you're headed down the wrong path with the drivers. They're in-ceiling Klipsch units, a couple years old. They're a bit too diffused for any critical listening, but I have the speakers pointed straight outward for casual radio and CD play. My old Mission 771s have suffered some pretty catastrophic rubber tears, so these are a stand-in until the Missions are back in running order. After that, I'll probably put them in my living room.

Well, I do have some Sony NC in-ears lying around that I never use, but I doubt that's what you were thinking of.

I'm ok with that, I never tried an IEM with noise cancelling :-) In any case, thanks!

You have a really impressive Cd collection there! How long did it take you to obtain that? :D
