VideoLogic ZXR-550 5.1 for the PC and a pair of Missions and a pair of JPW's for the Hifi.
Got a pair of B&W 600S3s hooked up to a Rotel RA-01 amp (and a Rotel RCD-02 cd player). Sounds stunning to say the least, regardless of what you play through it.
Pair of Eltax monitor 3's hooked up botch-mod stylee to a centre speaker through to an amp, wiv my Cd player, DVD and lappy connecting 2 it sounds sweet
I've got a pair of standard JVC that came with my last stereo 80w RMS a piece, A pair of old JVC S-55's that I am changing all of the drivers for. Both pairs sound really good together.
Cheap ass Koss 4.1
Hooked up to my computer:
A pair of active Yamaha MSP5s and an activeAcoustic Energy Aegis AE Sub (towards the bottom)
A pair of Tannoy 605 IIs
arcam alpha 7r -->eltax lr 6.5
Creative Inspire 5300. Not too bad... my headphones (Senheisser HD212Pro) are much better.
Creative Megaworks 5.1, very nice
PC: ada885mg - brilliant
Hi-Fi: Monitor Audio B2 - excellent
Some B&W 603 S2's at the mo, new speakers arriving in 3 weeks. See sig.
When i have audio from the computer, i mostly use my Marantz PM7000 with Dali 8008 speakers. If there is no need for quality though, i just use a set of old Apple Speakers.
noCode, change from team 32 to 62.
I need people on my team.
Entering offtopic area, use extreme caution
Futuremark.com? Sorry, doesn't seem like a team for me.
Come join Team32 instead, help overtake the [H] people!
I'm running Voxcin Sat 3D's through a Voxcin 8i (passive) sub. These are hooked up to a Pioneer SA-6300 amp (old but gets the job done).
They arn't bad little speakers, I picked them up cheap and they go really hard. Much better than any multimedia speakers I've heard but nothing on my HIFI.
Me got some 4.1 Creative speakers, they arehere. Bit less than £50
PC -> GameTheater XP 7.1:
3.5mm stereo -> Logitech Z340's
Stereo RCA jacks -> Denon PMA255UK amp + Pair of Tannoy MX2-M speakers
Headphone output -> Philips HP890 cans.
Now before you bag out the Philips cans (which are bloody amazing for £50) you should read this: http://www.hifichoice.co.uk/review_read.asp?ID=1572
Just got me an Audigy 2zs with Creative T7700 7.1 speakers.
They are the bomb. Never heard anything like it.
My PC speakers are Creative iTrigue 3300s. Pretty decent sound, especially when you crank the sub a bit for games
My "proper" music listening system is:
Arcam Alpha 7 SE
TDL RTL 3s
I've yet to find any music which didn't sound great played through this system
Mine is almost all DIY, my PC system consists of 5 sattelites based on Audax Aerogel midwoofers and silk dome tweeters, the sub uses a 10" Scanspeak woofer. The amp is a generic IC circuit, paired up with a decent PSU setup, plonks out about 100w total.
The main rig is a Meridian 506.24 CD player, DIY pre/power amps using Passlabs class A designs. The speakers are 2 ways, Audax 165mm Aerogel mid-bass with a Scanspeak 9500 silk dome (awesome, best tweeters I've ever heard). They are backed up with a couple of Scanspeak 10" subs.
