6 years on this message board and I just discovered that this section exists?? Wow.

Anyways, thought I'd share a few pics of my setup and listening area here.

The setup includes:
-Custom 845 tube amp split into 3 chassis':
---Chassis 1 - 845 power stage
---Chassis 2 - DC power supply for 845 filaments
---Chassis 3 - Driver stage for 845, utilizing #56 triode & 843 triode

-Zu Omen MkII Dirty Weekend speakers in American walnut finish

-Schiit Loki 4-band EQ
-Schiit Modi 3 DAC
-Schiit Mani Phono stage

-Clearaudio Concept turntable with Nagaoka MP-200
-Sansui FR-D3 turntable with Audio Technica AT95E
-Raspberry Pi 3B with a Digione SPDIF transport hat
---Running Volumio for playback of local media, and also streaming Tidal.

I have a switcher below the turntables that allows me to switch between either turntable, and I have an Arduino controlled stepper motor using an IR receiver to adjust the volume on the driver with pulleys and a belt.
At some point I plan to play around with a bit of room treatment to see if I can improve things at all, but quite frankly I am very happy with how it all sounds currently.

Also a couple pics of the turntables from above, and my record storage / cleaning area.

I recently picked up a Squeaky clean record cleaning kit, and it works amazingly well. I can't really recommend it highly enough.
