No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

Seeing as it's a new section that will probably have plenty of pictures, I thought a thread showing off your hi-fi equipment seemed somewhat appropriate... :D

Not really got much myself, just my Pioneer PL-400 turntable, pre-amp and home-made line attenuator, naff all really but works nicely when connected to my Turtle Beach PX-21 gaming headset... :D

Is that the caspian range? And I also looked at the K2 range.

Nice stack :)
Yes the cd player and amp are early caspian, the power amp is mk2
The turntable is an original Project Debut.
Most of it is not 10 years + but still plays beautifully, cd deck has just come back from Roksan after an overhaul.:D

Rokan was one of my choices. But in the end I went for the quad.

What speakers are you running?

I was very tempted by Quad and Musical Fidelity but have no regrets with the Rokan.
Maybe time I made another visit to the Bristol HIFI show :D

Here's mine - nothing special at all but more than adequate for a non-audiophile, like me.

This is in my shack/office upstairs. An ancient JVC turntable to listen to my old Russian LPs

IMAG0257.jpg

Some Kenwood AV receiver and a JVC power amp at the bottom, which I use purely as a pre-amp for the turntable.

IMAG0262.jpg

TDL speakers (x2)

IMAG0258.jpg

This is in the living room. A Marantz SR4200 AV receiver. Probably older than the Kenwood I have but I prefer it... hence why it's the main amp in the house.

IMAG0263.jpg

Gale Gold Monitor speakers (x2) and Senheiser RS 170 wireless headphones

IMAG0264.jpg

The centre and the rear speakers are also by Gale - no idea of the model but the rear ones are smaller and the centre one has 3 speakers in it.

A recently departed friend left me his Nakamichi 700 cassette machine, which I'm in the process of reconditioning - when I can source parts for it. Needs new drive belts really, but it sounds excellent when I've recorded from disc to tape.
Problem for me is I don't have the space to stack it permanently with my other units; it has to sit on the floor when I want to record from the the record deck. And it's very heavy.

The cassette deck is still considered the gold standard.

I think you can still buy them. Last time I googled it.

I use quad link cables from the pre-amp to mono blocks.

Then I have fisual Havana cables.

And 12awg ofc speaker cable (pure copper)

And a fisual optical cable to my av amp from my streamer.
