My Squeezebox setup
The receiver is a 1978 vintage Pioneer SX-1980 rated at 270 watts per channel RMS.
The speakers (not shown) are Vandersteen 2Cs along with a Vandersteen 2W powered subwoofer.
The Squeezebox is connected using the analog outputs (I plan to add an external DAC later) using Kimber PBJ interconnects.

In my defence, this is the only place in the house where there are any cuddly toys! It's the top of a wardrobe - that's where these things get shoved. I will admit to having a mini Max from Where The Wild Things Are though (of course!). Now you mention it, I've no idea where that's got to.

The receiver can get a bit warm, but it's several inches deeper than the TiVos on top of it so it ventilates OK. Also, it has a fan which comes on if it gets too unhappy.

Ok well here is mine.
Note the cunning use of a Rega Planar 3 as a nice stable support - I never use it anymore...Oh the shame!!
The Sub is only for surround sound before I get any comments on that...

Wow, there's vintage equipment and then there's museum equipment!
Fascinating - I assume it still works?
Looks like a mechanical-only device with no possibility of connecting it to your preamp.
I bet yours is the only setup in the world where such a piece of equipment is sitting right next to an SB2.
Just think - grooves on a piece of plastic played back through a mechanical horn amplification process to digital bits flung through thin air.
