Thanks! I've been into tubes most of my life. To me tubes sound better than solid state. Those are Ikea carpets on the walls. They were needed to deaden the wall resonances. They made a big improvement in the sound :)

But with an English menu and no fluffy bits on the earphones.
Also some floorstanding speakers but they're surrounded by mess at the moment.

This is an older pic of my home studio. I'm running a custom-built AMD64 dual-core PC with Windows 7. My mixer/interface is a Mackie Onyx 1620, and my monitors are KRK RP5s. I just recently finished recording and mixing a CD for my brother's band, The Leafs (http://www.theleafsband.com). It's called Keep It Simple (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0036KYAWK/ref=dm_sp_alb?ie=UTF8&qid=1265077870&sr=8-2-catcorr), and is available on Amazon.com now!

Does stuff like this count ?

Pictures are a couple of years old, but except for the location everything is still pretty much the same.

If you can afford it, go up to the RP8s. I have a set of them, and when for nearfield, the honestly go almost as deep as that giant subwoofer I posted above.

MBP -> Apogee Duet -> WooAudio 6 -> Sennheiser HD600

No pics to put up, but its a simple clean setup

The WA6 in silver looks killer along with the Duet next to the MBP :D

Older pic. Same stuff pretty much, but rearranged (different headphones, sold the effector). Loft looks completely different now, though.

My God. :eek:

He'd beter be using Apple Lossless (or AIFF, though it takes up an inordinate amount of space for the same quality of audio), otherwise he's wasting about $1100 in equipment!
