Was just wondering what every one has for their home stereo system?

I have a Sansui QRX-5500A quadraphonic receiver (http://www.classicsansui.net/images/Literature/Receivers/QRX-5500/QRX-5500A.JPG)
mated to a Sansui SR-717 Turntable (http://www.classicsansui.net/images/Literature/Turntables/SR717.jpg)
and a Pioneer PL-1150 Turntable (no image available :crybaby:)
piping old school Glam Metal through a pair of Sansui SP-2000 speakers for the front audio bank (http://www.classicsansui.net/images/Literature/Speakers/SP2000.jpg)
and a pair of Sansui SP-100's for the rear audio bank (http://www.classicsansui.net/images/Literature/Speakers/SP200.jpg) same as the 200's.

Analog all the way vato! :rock:

Analog all the way vato! :rock:Some of those old component stereos were great sounding. For my 13th birthday in 1984 my parents bought me the component stereo of my dreams, a high end JVC with the sepeate tuner/cassete/amp/turntable and speakers. Amp blew just last year and I replaced it with a newer Yamaha amp. Still using those old speakers and I still have the tape deck from that old stereo and the speakers still sound great!. Growing up in the 70's and 80's I remember how respected the Sansui brand was. ;)

Well, as simbariner said, my old turn table thread has my system.

That was all at the old house... The new house is a mess and a construction zone while I get painting and stuff done, but I did set the system up in the living room... coudln't resist. Once everything gets it's own place, the front spare bedroom will be my dedicated sound room, so it'll finally be able to be properly setup :)

An Onkyo something or other (it's been a while since I've upgraded my home theater setup or even looked at what's available; it was top of the line at the time; 7 channel surround, a gajillion inputs).

I've got a Sony STR-DE945 that I got for like 45% of cost because it was an open-box item with no remote (but I then got them to throw in another remote for no cost). But now it's started to die on me, the relay that controls the speakers I think is shot, banging on it makes it work, which is sad for a receiver that cost $900 list new. In light of that, and that I'm not using it for A/V or surround right now, I may just got back to my old Marantz. http://www.classic-audio.com/marantz/pics/2220b.jpg

Onkyo was my favorite there for a while. Yours might be something in the TX-DS or TX-SR series. Some of them, like the DS787, 898 and 989 were THX Certified and just phenomenal quality and heft.

The whole "THX" certification stuff is nothing more then something else to brag about :)

Thats a nice Marantz ;)

Modern Onkyo seems to be pretty good, if I was to choose a new home theatre receiver, it would be H/K or Onkyo, sorta mid-range, but to me spending alot of money on a home theature system... I dunno, its sorta like computers now, new formats and more channels all the time, the old stuff gets out dated. Good ol' 2ch stereo however, will not be outdated :)
