    I've just got a pair of KRK RP5 active monitors that I bought for my "project studio" :)rolleyes:) and use for everything else as well since my "studio" is my bedroom :laugh:. Oh, and I have them elevated on a pair of Auralex MoPads since they're on a top-shelf thingamajig (holy shit, no squiggly red line under that!? :wtf:) on my desk.

    I have Realtek HD Audio onboard...which is pretty nice on my 2.1 Labtec speakers...they aren't too bad...little bassy...but no matter, I only got them for $4 at the thrift store :p

    I'm going to get the same set of speakers my bf has...such power and sooner or later a X-fi Extreme Music ^_^

    You're saying anything less than 5.1 is trash?
    Is that C++?

    Logitech Z-640s that I've had for pretty much forever, still work perfectly. I use the sub as a footrest so often that the plastic ring around the edge of the sub is missing paint and buffed smooth from my feet. :p

    Radiotehnika U-101 amp. I rebuilt it by myself - took out lot of useless crap, replaced all caps and swapped transistor based amp plates with LM3886 chips.

    [​IMG]

    2 of these. They were in worse condition when i got them. Speakers are replaced with brand new ones, but i still got a lot of work to do

    Philips SHP2000 Headphones. Amazing for their price.

    [​IMG]

    And of course Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE card modded to X-Fi Xtreme Audio in my PC. I'm planning to do some hardware mods to it :)
