Default AudioPhilio's Office System

Well I have been lurking around for awhile now and decided that I would post my second system first The fact is that 90% of my listening happens here at work. This has been mainly driven by the fact that my primary system is in my family room, and there is practically zero quiet time in my house due to four teenagers and my wife. I know in time that will change.... For now this is my place of work and sanctuary for listening.
I have been building on this system since early 2009 and I must say it is providing me with superb sound. It took until July of 2012 before I could really say that, as there was a real suckout in the 80-100 HZ range that really impacted listening for me. I read how other people on this forum had incredible results getting their speakers setup properly, and that is was transformative for them. I want to thank the members of AA for sharing their knowledge and experiences here; It has made a HUGE difference for me personally.
I just picked up a Luxman L-505u this week and am presently demoing it in place of the Cary. So far I am really impressed with the Luxman. It offers a really nice improvement in bass control. I have also been thinking about adding a turntable, so the phono stage would be nice. They both have their own virtues, and I will be deciding in the next week whether or not the Luxman stays. Pictures of that will follow...
If you look closely in the right corner of the room there is a Audioquest VDM-5 S/PDIF cable running from my computer to the Esoteric player. I am running J River Media as well as MOG streaming. There are worse conditions to work in

Phil.......That is an attractive system that I am positive sounds very good. What a great office system. Beats the heck out of a table top radio sitting on a bookshelf.

Can't see how there would be any complaints if one's desk sat in front of your system.
NICE!

Thanks everyone. It is a test of self control every day not to progressively turn the volume up, that is for sure

The Cary SLI 80 has held a warm place with me for almost 4 years now. I think I am just getting a case of the (no so) dreaded LuFlu. And the Luxman is really nice too. So much equipment to hear, not enough time!
