The home audio thread: what’s your setup

Curious to know what folks are running for home audio. AVR’s, amps, DAC’s, speakers, soundbars, etc. Photos encouraged, but not necessary.

I’m eyeing a new DAC for later this year, made by a great UK company: Chord Electronics.

I'm using Roon in 3 rooms of my house so far, ranging from boom boxes to hifis. I listen a lot.

Some of my DACs are Chord. One Mojo is surplus to requirements.

Thinking about getting a Sonos Playbar for the TV room to improve the sound from movies, and also plug into Roon (I think).

Roon rocks. I let my subscription lapse but I'll probably get back to it.

These days its just a pair of Beyers plugged into the laptop playing FLAC's via Foobar... I guess Its like the mechanic who drives a beaten up old wreck or the builder who lives in a run down house :laugh:

Here's a few old favourites, some I still have... Though I'm not 100% sure where :o_o:

After seeing all the great stuff here I really need to get mine fixed
All library photos as all packed away in their boxes
Musical Fidelity B200

Musical Fidelity A3

Linx Stratos

Monitor Audio R300MD’s

And finally Marantz CD80


All very ancient, I bought the R300’s when I was 18, the CD80 and B200 at 21
Not up to any of the above setups standards but the 3A and Stratos together are quite amazing

A couple of Bluetooth speakers (Philips BT4000, SuperTooth D5...), but got more into headphones recently. So I have a Beyerdynamic Custom Studio and Custom Street, Soundmagic Vento P55, Fostex T40RP Mk3, Cleer DU, Edifier W830BT, AKG K702 and a few in-ears.
Only paid the full price for the Custom Studios, the rest were at 30-50% off. Still a pretty penny, but, darn it, they're nice.

Mine is an audio/home cinema system, though I mostly care about my audio system.
