    Here are couple of update shots since last time I posted images of the equipments I have.

    My gear rack.
    [​IMG]

    Front 3 channels are powered by tube amps (SET for highs, P-P for woofers)
    My processor has been changed from Outlaw 950 to Onkyo PR-SC885.
    Disc player has been changed from Sony multi-disc DVD player to Oppo BDP-80
    Above the disc player is a home made passive stereo preamp which was posted on DIY section.
    Above passive pre are Rane active x-over and parametric equalizers for mains.
    Above processor are Rane active x-overs and graphic equalizers for center and surrounds, above them are amps for surrounds.
    On top of the rack is a power conditioner which I bought on impulse 6 years ago (still in use).

    View with most lights off.

    Updates on main speakers to come later.

    And "fringe" is hip, urban Californian chic for....???

    Please pardon my ignorance. I've spent the last 20 years in the unhip, redneck capital of North America.

    Not as sweet as Yesfan's avatar. ;)

    Every thing is connected with either home made IC cable (per soundhound's instruction) or 12 ga. speaker cable I bought in bulk from Bluejeans.

    Pauly, I'll be posting a close up of "Christmas Tree" shot soon.

    Thanks guys.

    With all those tubes, does it do marshmallows?

    Not from Oct to March when the ambient temp is on the low side. Instead, they double as room heater. :angry-extinguishflame: Between April and Sep, I use most of my free time with outdoor stuff so they hardly get used. You may notice a thin layer of foil faced insulation under the shelves of the bottom half of the rack where all the tube amps are. They do good job blocking the heat to components above.
