    Haha Okay maybe i went a *tad* OTT last time :D

    Also- MGS45(or something) Don't you find having the centre speaker off-centre affects the sound stage?

    My Hifi is basically my HTPC and my HTPC is basically my main machine, which is my laptop :).

    Dell d series docking stations handily have a PCI slot so when i dock my laptop beside my TV the sound switches to use the m-audio 24/96 in the pci slot and switches to using the DVI on the back of the docking station. The m-audio card is hooked up to my yamaha amp.

    For speakers i have two sony bookshelfs and sennheiser hd595s for headphones.

    It's not in the same league as many of the other ones that will be posted but i think it's a pretty impressive all in one type setup.

    Shall post pics of my measly setup one day. It's nothing compared to tad's kit though (for a CD-amp combo).

    looks like it's time for a new TV maximumshow :) I think you've won gargantuan speakers of the eternity award.

    I doubt my z-5500's count as hi-fi, and we all probably know what they look like.

    M3G4..;)

    Yeah, and so does having the left speaker partially hidden, but I guess its making the best of the space you have. Move along the sofa in front of it and soundstage is fine :)

    3 of the olive boxes are power supplies, two are hicaps and one is an armageddon.
    The hicaps power cd and preamp i think and the napsc powers the digital circuitry in the pre amp too (the small black box). The armageddon powers the turntable above.
    Only the one set of speakers (sbl's) are driven by the system.
