Systems Gallery

This page is an image gallery of "Audio Playback Systems" from around the world. They share at least one common feature, they all play vinyl.

System building notes:

The systems featured in this gallery can be regarded as a personal endeavor by the system owner. For many it is an exercise where the owner becomes chief designer of his/her own system.  Some times it can be a simple exercise of choosing among many new and  or used signal chain components to be combined into a harmonious assembly to contribute to a whole which, (if done well, and sometimes with a bit of serendipity),  sounds greater than the sum of its individual parts and pieces.  

Others  take opportunity to incorporate their DIY skills into the process by building some part or parts of the audio system themselves. These projects can range from the construction of equipment stands, turntable plinth building, fabrication of room treatment accessories, assembling own interconnects and speaker cables, designing and building one's own turntable, assembling amplifiers and preamplifiers from a kit, or designing and building ones own, etc. 

The room itself is often times considered to be the primary and most important component within a system.  The acoustic properties of a room will define what is possible in terms of sound quality of a given assembly of components.  For some this may mean the purchase of property with the construction of a cost-no-object ideal listening room in mind.  Meanwhile the rest of us will make do with the rooms we currently live in and attempt to optimize a compromise between the necessities of life versus what can be done to improve the listening venue.  Any of the above can be found within the gallery here.
