|This is a picture of my current setup at home. It includes my Computer (far left), my 2 monitors, only one of which is hooked up. My stereo system, composed of a Kyocera DA-710cx single-disk CD player, a Hitachi preamp, tuner and tape deck, and a BRB systems 500w solid state power amp (that monster in the lower right corner with the ominous red light. My speakers are old Fisher A/V speakers, which produce nice base, the most important thing, if you ask me! I also use a set of Stax SR-5 electrostatic ear speakers, and a set of Grado SR-60 headphones, both of which have remarkable sound quality. This is where I do all of my gaming, word processing, work on this website and other fun computer-related stuff, such as hacking into the NSA and routing PGP-encrypted TOP SECRET documents to all the columbian drug lords in the Santa Ynez Valley.|
