Been a while, room hasn’t changed, but system has evolved a bit over the past year or so:
Looks damn cozy.
Quad ZU's! Do you run them all at the same time?
I am going to ask for a tour. He seems like a real likeable guy.
Here's a good one from a few years ago.
I realize the temps in the Bay Area are rather moderate but am curious if temperature extremes ever impact your equipment. Thanks
Hey AK gang, here's my first photo post. I'm 33 and love gear from circa 1990, when the black face stuff was still metal. This is where I jam out, play PS1, PS2 and DC. There's a second TV set-up to the right for SNES, N64 & Wii.
Gear: Adcom GFA-545II, Sony GX80ES as a tuner & preamp, Marantz DV-6001 for cds, Denon DN 780R dual cassette deck running through an ADC Sound Sharper Thirty. Power comes through Furman M-8Dx. Cables are Blue Jean brand running to Klipsch RP-280F speakers. All other cables are KableDirect. No turntable back here yet, although we are using on up front in the main stereo/HT. TV is a 27" Panasonic I purchased new in 2001.
The Nintendo rig: Sony STR-AV1020(black plastic I know, but it does feature a spectrum analyzer not to mention has sweet 80/90s aesthetics.) , Pioneer HPM500 speakers, Pioneer Elite DV-47A, 1994 Sony Trinitron 20".
All furniture is hand-me-down except my chair which I picked up from lowes for cheap back when I had a bachelor pad. Overall, I couldn't be happier. This is a place I can relax and simply disconnect from reality for a bit.
Looks great to me. I'll bet those Klipsch sound great.
I thought I wanted all silver face gear, but I ended up getting a great deal on Parasound pre & amp, then I got the Denon table, and then the Sansui tuner. Next thing you know I have a rack full of black gear!
Not to be too sarcastic, but all of my systems are inside our house where we have heating in the winter and air conditioning in the summer. So no, my equipment never even comes close to being affected by the temperature extremes we experience in Iowa in the winter or in the summer.
Even on hot summer days when we choose not to run our AC and it gets up to the 90s inside, this is still well within the range of safe operating temperatures of modern electronics. Under these "extreme" conditions I still operate my hi-fi systems, and indeed all of our electronics and appliances, without worry.
About the only thing I've ever noticed is that tonearm cueing functions slower when it is a little cooler inside.
What specifically were you curious about?
Welcome to the AK community!
Here are my two main systems. I have all the miscellaneous stuff like everyone else tape decks, EQ's, turn tables, The usual suspects but this is my main gear.
Is that a Sega Deamcast I see in your system too? I like.
No. Haha. I actually sold the other pair. Zu's are strictly for two channel and the Klipsch's are for home theater. Just got the Klipsch's.
Been listening to my Baltic 50s lately. I had to fix sagging woofers spiders and now they sound phenomenal.
A couple amps just joined the party!
Putting a system in a room above a garage in North Texas. Window air and space heater only and only on when I am up there. Perfect room but not climate controlled 24 hours. I have an inexpensive system in there now but would love to put the better system up there. I’ve noticed the same thing re queing. Didn’t detect any sarcasm and appreciate your response.
It's apparent our new little "Bucky" enjoy's watching Paul's videos as well!
