Default Your Audio Equipment

What are people using to listen to their music on?

My headphones are YuinG1A. They are still burning in. They sound nice enough I suppose.


My speakers right now are BIC Ventura Formula 6 (I only took a pic of one).

Come on people. I know you've got cool audio equipment--I've seen some posted before.

Here's what I've got:

From my Macbook Pro's optical out to a LiTe DAC-AH and then output through some homemade silver cables to a Heed Canamp


Then depending on my mood I'll either plug in my Sennheiser HD650s


Or my Grado RS2s


When I'm portable I just have my Iphone and Shure E2Cs

I got some cheapo Sennheiser headphones and earbuds, but would be interested on what you guys have, I could use an upgrade.

My computer has a cheap Audigy soundcard in it. Hooked up to it is either a pair of Sony MDR-7506s or a pair of Sennheiser HD-212s.
My portable audio player of choice these days is my Android-based LG Ally phone. If I don't feel like carrying around my proper headphones (which is often the case), I'll hook up a pair of Koss KSC75s or PortaPros to it.
There are no amplifiers or any other pieces of fancy equipment anywhere in the chain.

The audiophiles just might burn me.

The top unit is an Onkyo Compact Disc Player DX-7555 and the bottom is a Yamaha Receiver RX-V663. The Onkyo has Digital Optical Out so I run that to the receiver. As far as speakers...





I have a Klipsch Cinema 8 Speaker System 5.1 system.....(Front Speakers)



Side Speakers look like so.


Another side Speaker.


10'' Sub

I have to note that Klipsch Speakers own all. Best you can buy....IMO =) This is what I listen to CDs to and well everything else including my Laserdiscs!!! =)

Mostly a portable setup for me. I have both a Cowon D2+ with a 32GB card inserted (used for rating newer albums of mine) and a Cowon X7 (used for albums I know I like...usually, I just set it to random-all and it does all the work). So I have access to about 200GB of lossless music at work, which is really where I do most of my music listening anyway. Computer is pretty standard (Soundblaster Audigy 2 ZS, 5.1 speakers hooked up), but gets the job done.

I have a pair of Denon AHD2000's, but still working on a capable home system to really use them. For the portable usage, Future Sonics Atrio in-ear phones get the job done beautifully.

All albums are ripped, Wavgained (an mp3gain for Wav's basically) and then encoded to FLAC Level 8.
