The Audiophile’s Workspace

The Audiophile’s Workspace

We’ve seen a lot of workspaces with great audio gear in them, but redditor huy- has an interesting collection of good, solid, consumer gear meant to give him the best possible listening experience without being crazy or over the top. Here’s a look at his workspace.

The shot above is the whole setup, including the audio gear to the left of the desk and workstation. Here’s a shot specifically of the computer and associated equipment:

Huy- explains what you see:

Asus ProArt PA248q 24” monitor

Dell U3011 30” monitor

Wyse keyboard — shopping around for a good mechanical fullsized keyboard.

Logitech G500 mouse

Fostex 6301b powered monitors

Teac LS-MC90 speakers

15” MacBook Pro i7 – 2.3GHz, 16GB RAM, 240GB SSD

Now, the Macbook Pro isn’t hooked up to anything, but he does share a photo and the rundown of his computer at the bottom. Here are the specs:

Hidden on the other side of my entertainment stand, my PC. I need to upgrade my gaming graphics card for this PC.

Fractal R4 case

i7 3770k w/ Corsair H110i cooler

16GB RAM Corsair Dominator RAM

EVGA GTX 570 w/ NZXT bracket, Corsair H90 cooler

AMD FirePro W7000

a silly amount of HDDs

Seems legit. I specifically appreciate the lighting and the wood desk with plenty of space to spread out, although the chair doesn’t look too comfortable for long periods! Next, let’s look over at the audio gear:

Sony XDR-F1HD tuner

Denon DA-300USB DAC

Denon DN-500AV preamp

Mach 1 Acoustics DAC

Sony X303ES CD Player

Harman Kardon PM640 integrated amplifier

And that’s not even including the gorgeous DarkVoice 336i he has just above that shot, and the vintage 2-channel Carver C-500 power amp he’s managed to hold on to (and/or have passed down to him!) Hit the link below to see the full Imgur gallery, we don’t want to spoil everything here.
