My Continuously Evolving Blob of Electronics\n\nThis thread is subject to swift changes.\n\n\nI am only a college student living in a 2 bedroom apartment. I don't have much money, because I spend it on audio stuff that I know I don't need. So I guess you could say that I am helplessly addicted, thank goodness it isn't drugs or smoking I am addicted to.:D\n\nI am an audio scavanger, so the stuff I find may be outdated or banged up, but I always strive to get the best bargain possible. You may see me nose around in a Hi-Fi store asking them a bunch of questions, and possibly making a fool out of a stupid deceitful salesman.\n\nI have moved my system to my living room as it used to be in my bedroom. \n\nComponents:\nTelevision- JVC I'Art 27" Flat tube with cool 16:9 compression mode for DVDs\nDVD Player- Toshiba SD-9000 non-progressive, but a tank with true black levels.:)\nCD Player- Magnavox CDB-650 Swing arm transport, Coaxial SPDIF out, needs mods to overide oversampling.\nReceiver- Yamaha HTR-5890 7.1 THX Select.\nSpeakers- Four NHT 1.5 bookself speakers for front left and right, center, and rear surround, Infinity IL 10's for left and right surrounds.\nAssorted interconnects from Acoustic Research, Audio Quest, Magnavox, Monster, RadioShack, Labtec (out of business, I believe it was a division of Recoton before it was bought out by Audiovox), Straightwire, and some Mickey Mouse "came in the box" junk cables.\n\n\nPictures of primary system-\n\nFront view, look closely at the TV screen you will see the amazing levitating lamp:eek:-\n\n\n\nCloser to TV and center NHT 1.5-\n\n\n\nThe new Yamaha HTR-5890, Magnavox CDB 650, Toshiba SD-9000, and Fisher Integrated used as temp. power for my M&K-\n\n\n\nClose up of NHT 1.5 used as a center channel, which I had planned to shield, but it works fine were it is-\n\n\n\nM&K being slowly re-employed into the system-\n\n\n\nSurround left Infinity IL 10-\n\n\n\nSurround right Infinity IL 10-\n\n\n\nThis arrangement may last a while.
