Here's my crapy setup. But I do have an ASUS G2S-A1. That's the highlight of my setup. xD

setup changed ^^:

new lcd tv, ps3, and wii added using my computer as media player now

tis finally my dream game setup


BTW the ps3 has yet to get lossless playback, but omg it sounds better than my sound blaster audigy 2 or an xfi with music playback

Wow! :eek: I never saw someone with all three "recent-gen" consoles at home... wicked! Do you actually have the time to use all three? :)

yuki 09-03-2007 12:19 PM

sort of, usually the wii is little games that last about 30 minutes or so that i play when friends come over (oh yeah and zelda, man link is a hottie ^^')

the 360 is my hack and slash / rpg box (play that at least once a week)

and the ps3 well i use mainly for ps2 games bec with the new hdtv my ps2 had really bad jagged output and i mean ninja gaiden is pretty cool ^^

more so i am waiting for eternal sonta on the 360 and the other consoles will not be used for a while when it does come out ^^

Though the ps3 is very functional as a linux computer as well as very good audio output

My Setup
5 Attachment(s)
Here's my setup. I run XP because I dislike vista. I just use the HP case. I have TV tuner installed, 2 512 Graphics cards. 1 TB total HD space. The mac isn't the best considering I got it fro free. It has about 200 MB of space. I overclocked a 300Mhz G3 Processor to 450 Mhz and put leopard (10.5) on it. Pain in the arse to do. I run synergy so I only need 1 mouse and keyboard for the lot. The projector is a HD DLP movie projector. 2 VGA in, 1 set of component in, VGA out, DVI in and a bunch of others. I also have an Xbox 360. A 14 speaker home theatre system which is composed of 1 pioneer 1000 watt receiver and a 500 watt off brand receiver piggy backed. All the speakers are pioneer or Bose. The monitors are 2 17" LCD and a 23" wide screen LCD. I'm eventually going to install a 3rd graphics card to run to the projector so it will act as my third monitor. Then i can watch movies on it from ssupload.com. I am not rich by any means. I'm just very lucky with the deals I find and get. I have accumulated all this stuff in the past 6 months. I usually play the 360 on the projector. I'm limited to a 103 inch screen based on the size of my room. The sounds quality whether I'm playing a PC game or 360 game is amazing.

Also, you can imagine everything is integrated like a b!tch. This Bose sub is 400 watts powered. It is incredible.

That is a very eclectic group of electronics you got there.

cowboy86 09-22-2007 03:20 PM

Yea I prefer a variety.lol The monitors are IBM, Sony, and Acer also.lol

Here are some photos of my discreet, low-profile, yet effective bedroom audio setup:

My Altec Lansing BXR1121 speakers, which are really amazing considering the mere $30 I spent on them. Love the subwoofer to death, not only for the quality bass but for how the actual speaker is on the bottom, so there's no ugly grille or anything like that. Pictured along with my plasma lamp (which has an audio setting), as well as (yawn) my alarm clock.

My speakers pictured with my Fireball, a nifty little device that's audio-reactive and produces a cool laser light show. It gets a LOT of feedback on top of the subwoofer, and it's fun to watch. Was a gift, by the way...:rolleyes:

My Creative Zen Vision:M in its docking setup. The cradle came with the speakers, and it fits the player perfectly since it has the same 2D measurements of an iPod. It connects to the speakers and simultaneously charges through the sync adapter, which I use there permanently now that I have a direct USB transfer cable to hook it up to the computer downstairs.

Finally, a bird's eye view of my minimal, yet functional system. As you can see, I've become rather proficient in wire-hiding.:D

Here's mine updated.
1: My TV cabinet is currently a stack of vintage Beano books since I haven't made one yet :D
I'm also gaming in the stone age with a 15" mono sound played through a 2.1 system.
2: My piano, an M-Audio Pro Keys 88. It aint a Yamaha Clavinova but it does the job.
3: My PC running XP with crappy 2.0 speakers and another 15" screen.
4: A Spartan helmet for good measure!

Oh yeah and those headphones on the keyboard are bout 30-40 years old hand me downs from my dad. They're terrible.
