This is my set up, no too much space because it is within my student room so must be space for everything, looks cool though..

8740

8999

9000

My little system installed in my equally little C19th cottage. Unfortunately I can't move everything sideways to create more space for the Ruarks to work - it doesn't seem to compromise them too much though.

EDIT:
That's weird, why don't the photo's show?

For serious listening I set up my Linn Kans or if feeling really healthy I drag out the Klipsch. For day to day listening the Aegis and Eltax Atomic 10 work pretty well with the Sugden P51.

Origin Live Advanced added to Systemdek

Two views of the listening area:

1) From the listening position towards the racks:

9097

2) An oblique view from the left:

9098

The room is not ideal, being roughly 4m x 4m with large glass windows to the right and rear plus a large archway into the main lounge.

For those who want details of the components, etc:

9096

I enjoy it... :D

timspell - The 3340 is one of my eBay success stories, bought it off a guy selling his dads stuff, I bought it for less than the shipping cost, but I missed out on the matching Dolby NR unit, still spewing 3 years on. I use it quite a bit, my mate has a property out in the sticks and me and my mates use it to record our band on to, because tape just sounds so much better. Our band is about half way between Steely Dan and Dream Theater, the only problem is with the price of tape, we erase a good heap of takes.

In 1984, when I was 16, I used a classmate's dad's 3340 to create a quadrophonic soundtrack for a school play. During recording I monitored on two headphones in the 3340 arrayed around my head. During the play we used various JBL speakers and amplifiers surrounding the audience, which itself surrounded a central stage.

Those were the days ...

Wow, you were lucky :shock: -- generally competition for those RTRs is strong.

I stocked up on tape a while back, but understand prices are really high. Best of luck ith your band.

Yeah it was a buy it now at about 2am, I must have just got lucky. I was just starting an mixing course at the time, so the guy was pretty stoked as his old man was a studio engineer. I bought so much old tape in huge job lots, that I pretty much learnt overnight the bad companies for sticky shed. Capitol AAARRGHHH!!

Yeah the band, haha I only play synth/boards (sorta) but i'm a better engineer than a musician :P I used to play the drums so i've got good timing, and I'm trying to self teach guitar. So who knows...
