Current Set-Up Pics - Official Picture Thread

This is the thread to show off your current set-up whether it be desktop, portable or otherwise.

Just throw up a picture and and what let us know the gear featured in the picture. No impressions needed!

This is my bedroom set up.


  • Pro-Ject Debut Carbon with Ortofan 2M Blue
  • Sony PS-LX510
    (both of these go through a Pro-Ject Tube Box DS2)
  • Raspberry Pi 3 B with a HifiBerry Digi+ board that goes into a Schiit Modi Multibit (I have a USB for if I want to connect my laptop to the Modi as well)
  • Teac A-2300SD Reel to Reel

The sources are all connected to a Realistic Tape Control Center which sends the signal to:

  • Schiit Valhalla 2 powering Senn HD600s
  • Antique Sound Lab aq-1003dt powering Hsu Research bookshelf speakers
  • Behringer UCA-202 connected to laptop
  • Teac A-2300SD (which has not really been used for this purpose other than to watch its VU meters).

Took this last night of my modest set up. Please be gentle, I know it’s a stack of Schiit :stuck_out_tongue:


I took this a while ago but setup remains the same. Don’t think I’ll ever get tired of it.


I’ve sent my HD800’s off to a friend to get them painted and I’m getting my custom TH900 made, so this is all I have for now.

The LF is a loaner, but I had to take this picture because it’s such a weird assortment of gear.


Some nice rigs in here already! Definitely appreciating all the tubes … and especially the Bottlehead (local company) and Cavalli amps!

Here’s a couple quick/dirty shots of my “day job” office rig:

The setup comprises:

  • Schiit Yggdrasil Analog 2/USB Gen 5
  • Rega Planar 3 (2016) w/ upgrades
  • Schiit Mani Phono Pre-amp
  • Woo Audio WA5-LE Mk2 w/ parts upgrade package
  • Focal Elear

Yggdrasil is fed from the office workstation running TIDAL, through True-Fi.

The Planar 3 has a Groovetracer Reference Sub-platter and Record Weight, the Rega Reference (White) Belt, and the new NEO TT-PSU.

Various other headphones get dragged in here when I fancy something a bit different.


How things look in the midst of everything going on.

This is my primary headphone rig … well, the bits that are ON the desk anyway. The custom streamer isn’t shown (hides under the desk until I finish the case for it):

Headphones, from left to right, you have Fostex TH900 Mk2 (Emerald), JPS Labs AB-1266 Phi, Audeze LCD-4, Sennheiser HD800S and HD660S, Sony MDR-Z1R and finally the Focal Utopia.

The DAC is a a Chord DAVE in it’s “Choral” series stand. The amps are dual Woo Audio WA234 MONO Mk2 mono-blocks.

You’ll have to excuse the funny little desktop speaker sneaking in on the side (Soundsticks III) … that’s just used for basic sound output/cues from the Mac Pro. And it’s very hard to see/photograph the color on the Fostex, but the Emerald Green is very pretty in person:



Oh my! I’m totally floored by the Woo Blocks . Jack just keeps getting better and better. Must be “awesome”
His quality and museum like art is astounding. Good Looking Desk . :sunglasses:

Got some gear to the office today to play around with. New gear day is always my favourite day!

From Left to Right : AudioQuest NightOwl Carbons, Campfire Audio Cascade, MrSpeakers AEON Closed, Focal Elear, Audeze EL-8 Open

Good way to start the week!


That looks like a lot of fun!

If you have access to either Sonarworks Reference or True-Fi, make sure to give it a try with the Elear (and in particular in comparison to the Clear). Love to see if you find it as effective there as I do.

At some point I need to get my ears around the AEON Closed.


Holy moley! With gear like this, how do you get any work done?


Me thinks when you have gear like that you might not work. :roll_eyes:
