Turning blue

When I put out the call to "Show us yours--your hi-fi that is" in December. I didn't know what to expect, but the Audiophiliac readers' response was broad and deep. JPEGs of heavyweight hi-fis, from home theaters to tiny desktop audio systems, flooded my in-box. They're all good, so let's get started looking at the gear.

Some high-end turntables are gorgeous, and Lee S.'s VPI is pretty snazzy.

Screamin' screen

Daniel Q.'s home theater setup took about 10 years to put together, starting in high school, when he bought his first pair of M&K S-150 speakers. Over the years, he bought additional speakers, upgraded components, built subwoofers, and then "gave up" and bought subs. He continued to fiddle and finally added a 128-inch projection system a couple of years ago.

DIY electrostats

Some readers build their own speakers, and that's impressive. But David F. built his own electrostatic panel speakers and subwoofers! He also restores reel-to-reel tape machines!

Wall-to-wall sound

Jeff D. sent this panoramic shot of his extreme high-end audio system. Wow!

Thanks to all who sent in photos. I'm just sorry there isn't room to show more systems.
