Cool System Pictures & Description

I invite everyone to post a picture and description of their systems. Comments are welcome!
(Mods: It may be useful to make this thread sticky or move its location)

My system was put together on a grad student's budget - i.e. next to nothing. I built the speakers using vintage Alnico drivers from Dave aka planet10. I built the stands very cheaply from plumbing parts. Currently, I'm using two Sansui amps; one for the speakers and a second for the stereo subs seen under the desk. I'm currently gathering parts for a Mini-Aleph that will replace the Sansui driving the main speakers.

The sources are a Panasonic CD player, a belt-driven JVC turntable, and 10 GB of MP3s from my computer. I also have a Rega Planar2, but it's currently being used in the HT system. The preamp uses a single +24V power supply to run the 12AE6 space-charge triodes and heaters as well as the TI BUF634 buffers.

Cheers,
Eric

It's cool to see the speakers transformed into a good system -- and shows that you can indeed build something enjoyable for less than a couple lattes cost in London*

Weel, I'm also on a students budget (2nd year vehicle engineer at the Royal institute of technology in Stockholm, Sweden) and this is what I've managed to get/make this far:

Computer based source/DAC/preamp

Gainclone amplifiers

Open baffle speakers with Seas excel tweeters and CB17RCY/P woofers, on top of H-baffle subs with cheap 8"s.

The rear speakers are my first DIY speakers with the rear removed and crossover tossed out.

InFocus projector (my moms that I've borrowed until later...)

The speakers are crossed over/equalised using the DSP on the soundcard (kX drivers). I'm currently rebuilding the amp to make active crossover/eq/amp boxes next to the speakers.

Have fun

Anders

Anders, your system looks very nice. I really like OB speakers, and I think the next set I build will be of this type.

Come on guys, there must be more people out there with pictures of their systems!

Eric

Hi everyone,
Here comes the setup of another uni student. I'm a PhD student at Queensland University of technology with a background in physics, and since I also work at the uni this give’s me access to all sorts of cool equipment.

My mains were my first project and consist of Vifa tweeter (XT25TG-30-04) Peerless 5” (850488) and Peerless 8” (850490).

The sub I have just completed and is a Peerless 12” XLS with a 350W amp.

At the moment their connected to a crapy Sony amp which will be replaced for something else as soon as funds permit. My brother has a Rotel and when they were hooked up to it the bass increased phenomenally.

Cheers
Jye
