    My Play house,

    Nice 24" thick walls and no complaints....I can blast away down there all hours of the day. Comps nothing special just AMD dual cores networked and isolated from outside interferance. Using CakeWalk Sonar and Delta1010
    M-audio(s). A new to me Mackie board...it all just works. Big Fun.

    I just built a new PC worthy of playing BF3 to replace my aging old Athlon.

    New Rig:
    Cooler Master HAF 922 case
    Asus Maximum Gene-Z motherboard
    Intel I5-2400K OC'd to 4.8GHz
    Corsair H100 Liquid Cooler
    G.Skill 8GB DDR3-1600 Ram
    MSI GTX560Ti 2GB OC'd video card
    Samsung 1TB HDD


    And it plays BF3 at ultra settings without breaking a swet. :dude:

    Are those Mackie Monitors you have? My friend just bought a set how do you like them?

    Argosys are classy as hell. Nice space you have there too! Are building a dedicated studio?

    I also had a focusrite pre I had the 428. What a warm sounding pre!

    Love seeing all of the iMacs in here! :D I've decided at Christmas I'm probably going to get an iMac 27inch and then upgrade it (RAM wise) as money allows and try to start a little home studio.

    I had to get a new rig three and a half weeks ago when a bug fried my old rig and external hard drive completely . . . but man did I get lucky with this one . . .

    [​IMG]

    L to R:

    * HP Deskjet 2050 printer.
    * eMachines EL1358-53 desktop---a third the size of my old desktop, half the cost, 1TB hard drive and 3GB memory.
    * Iomega external hard drive--1TB, too. (Perfect for storing sound media without bogging down the main desktop.)
    * Bose Companion 5 left speaker.
    * LG Flatron monitor.
    * Memorex surge protection panel, with ceramic replicas of the Polo Grounds and Fenway Park on either side of the monitor base.
    * Saitek backlit keyboard.
    * Logitech Webcam.
    * Bose Companion 5 right speaker.
    * Logitech microphone.
