- audio kit, why oh why?
Why is it that some people feel the need to put their audio kit
online? Is it because they have a burning desire to share those
model numbers with the world at large? Or is it because people have
actually e-mailed them and said 'what so-and-so do you use'? Believe
it or not, in my case it's the latter...
So, sound comes in from various sources : two PC soundcards (a
Creative SoundBlaster Live! Value something-or-other, and a £10
CMedia generic thing - the CMedia one is better), a Pioneer
CMX3000 twin DJ deck, a Sony MZ-R50 MiniDisc machine, two Technics
SL1210 MkII turntables, an elderly Pioneer TX-130L tuner and a Beyer
M201 microphone.. That all feeds into a Behringer
DX 1000 mixing desk (which, for the record, is a smashing little
mixer - ignore the people who moan about Behringer!) From there
it travels down to an ancient Pye Hi-Fi Sound Project A 12000 amplifier
and thence to a pair of Wharfedale
CRS 3 speakers upstairs and a pair of Acoustic Research AR15s downstairs.
Or if it's late at night, turn off the speakers and listen through
the Beyer DT100 cans.

Happy now? Good.
