Here is my current setup... Geared more toward audio sound quality, but is a complete home theater system running JRiver MC thru a nVidia 960 HDMI output to a 4k Samsung display. All media is streamed from my LAN NAS media server.

Highlights....
Custom built externally on a Hammond chassis, SSD main drive.

Highly modified Asus Xonar STX with Burson Opamps, discrete 5v regulator, discrete crystal clock and custom built, external 15V+15V- DC/DC power supply.

Amps are vintage modified and restored Dynaco MkIII's in triode configuration.

Speakers are Kliptch KG4's with Bob Crites Ti dome horn tweeters and rebuilt crossovers.

Preamp is an Aspen Granite tube pre/headphone amp. Also testing a Carver power amp (bottom rack) to save mileage on the Dynaco's.

That is a very impressive setup. I am sure it sounds as great as it looks.

As an afterthought , is that a window behind your setup and if so do you plan on curtains.

If you love your Dynaco mono blocks use them. Live your life to the fullest :wink: Just stock up the tubes you like.

Thanks for sharing!

It is a window, yes... And curtains are there. I wanted the light behind to TV so as to not have reflection and glare.
