    I posted a couple videos in various threads, and thought it would be fun to hear our fellow AKer's setups. Consolidate it in one official video thread.
    Small or big, SS or Tubes, whatever. Let's get to experience, get an idea, each other's gear, a little hang time in each other's listening spaces!

    Some of these you all have seen, but I'll officially kick it off!

    Sounded good and your room is beautiful! Bass sounded pretty good on my headphones. You're setup is very nice! Thanks for posting your video!

    So here's a question for this fine Monday morning. If I am listening to your Proacs through my AR3's, what am I hearing?:smoke:

    Someone want to provide some recommendations on how best to make a video and post it? Smart phone? GoPro?
    I would also suggest you identify the song/track being played.

    Camera used for your video is up to you, though I'm surprised at how well my iPhone 6 records the sound. Obviously these are not high quality HD videos were making here, just for fun hobby videos to give an idea of your systems.
    I like the track listing idea.

    Hey David,

    I think the best way to listen to these is with headphones. This way, the speakers in each persons setup won't color the sound as much.

    Thanks for the videos, guys! I'm really enjoying them. Glad this thread was started.

    Glen, those L910s just knock me out. At first I thought they were going to be a bit too bassy, but when the rest of the band kicked in I was simply floored at the mid/treble presence of those speakers. Man, those are nice, nice, nice.

    Cool. Floor was rumbling when I took it. The Dynaco's with the 5's(and my Cornwall's too) really are a great match.

    Thanks, I wish I could actually hear your system and others in person. I'd love to hear those ADS speakers.

    Cool thread! These are the only videos I have of my system at the moment, taken for other reasons. I look forward to taking a full system vid in the near future and updating my post.

    Fun thread! :thumbsup: For a fun twist, here is my system playing a video of your system through my StudioLABs that I just restored in my "Curbside Find, Refoam or Scrap" thread.
    The audio has been through two stereos, two rooms, two phones and it's been uploaded twice! So be kind when judging my stereo. :) Headphones recommended.
