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.

Al T. bought this vintage Sansui receiver for $10! Nice match with the turntable and iPod dock.

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.

Tom R.'s Peachtree Audio DAC/amp and Dahlquist DQ-10 speakers. Sweet.

Andrew L. has a nice system built around Zu Audio Omens, one of my all-time favorite speakers, and a Dynaco amplifier.

This maximum sound for minimum space system came from Schyler O. His mini setup features a pair of Audioengine 2 speakers, a pair of Sennheiser 598 headphones, and a Schiit Asgard headphone amp.

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!

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.
