My temporary 2-channel setup. For now and probably at least a year at this point, it'll be in a bedroom that used to be our daughter's which we use for the occasional family guest now. From the left, the Baltic Birch record stand my son built for me. In the center, a mostly-rebuilt Kenwood KD4100 direct drive TT with an Audio Technica Lab Series LS500 microline M/M cartridge and a Grado M+ mono cartridge. Next to it is my E.A.T. C-Major TT with an Ortofon Quintet Blue m/c cartridge.
Below the Kenwood TT is a Sony BluRay player, which together with the TV is completely separate from the music system. Next to that is my Bluesound Vault 2. Below the E.A.T. TT is an Emotiva USP-1 pre-amp that has an internal phono amp for the Kenwood. On top of the Emotiva is the Schiit Mani phono amp for the E.A.T. TT.
On the low shelf of the Salamander Designs Archetype 3.0 stand is the Carver M-1.5t power amp that drives the KEF Reference 1 speakers. There was a reworked Miller & Kriesel V-90 sub in that corner behind the right speaker, but I took it out because the way the Carver drives those speakers, it wasn't needed.
The acoustic properties of the room are just incredible. Best I've ever had or heard. There will be changes to the electronics as time goes on, but renovations in other parts of the house come before I can do that.
