Just got a new set-up, nothing super special but a huge upgrade from where we were at. 
U-Turn Orbit Custom
Ortofon 2M Red
Marantz PM5005
Wharfedale Diamond 10.2

The TT on the same surface as the loudspeakers... Do you have anything to isolate the vibrations on the TT?

Can anyone suggest a vinyl shelving unit that is 42-44 inches long and holds two shelves of records and I can put my turn table, amp, preamp, and digital streamer on?  I've been using one from walmart for the last 4 years, but with the addition of bigger amp and streamer, they are hanging like an inch off the top.

I had a make shift set up a few years ago and then my turn-table kicked the bucket and I moved, so I got rid of everything except my small vinyl collection. A couple of weeks ago, I found a turntable, receiver, equalizer and a couple speakers for cheap, so I have a set up again! Eventually I'll start upgrading, but it'll do for now.

 

Ion USB turntable
Yamaha receiver

Pyramid Equalizer

Marantz 6300 TT
Yamaha KX-W592 Tape Deck
Yaqin MS23B Tube Preamp
Sansui QRX-5500 Receiver

Sansui SP-3500 and EPI 180 speakers

Sounds great to my ears but I'm not an audiophile.

I also use Roon / Tidal / Schiit DAC to stream my digital library to a Chi-fi tube buffer before going into the Sansui receiver.

Just rearranged my room for better acoustics and upgraded all components in the past few months. 

ProJect Perspective TT w/ ADC XLM MK II Improved Gold cartridge 

AMC 3050a (made by ex-NAD engineers and very similar to NAD) preamp into an Onkyo TX-8270 receiver which has several nice modern features like lossless streaming from any music service or networked drive. 

Q Acoustics 3050i speakers which I am obsessed with.

Finally took a few pictures yesterday of my console that a friend built for me.

(my full setup equipment list is in my profile - also, this is maybe 1/10th of my LPs)

I really like that furniture that your friend built. Who designed it?

Would be really cool if the bin area was able to be lifted out as an actual bin.

Recently made considerable upgrades to my work setup, as I find it's the place where I listen to music most frequently. No vinyl, but a pretty serious headphone setup that I'm very happy with:


ZMF Eikon Cherry headphones, ALO Green Line headphone Cable

Auralic Taurus MK II Headphone Amplifier

Schiit Gungnir Multibit DAC

Very close. You obviously know your arms!

 

12 inch Wand Plus, Dynavector DV505, and SME 3012R

Thanks!  I've been meaning to get a 507 MKII for some time.  I actually ALSO have a 10" Wand Plus and a couple of SME arms....3009R and a 3012 Series II Early Version plus a few others....I love truly love analog, especially tonearms and turntables :)

Great. What tables are they on?

The Wand and a Schroeder Reference is on a Luxman PD 444 turntable.

The SME 3009R is and an Ikeda IT 407-CR1 is on a Woodsong Audio Garrard 301 (Grease Bearing, Hammertone Finish).

The SME 3012 Series II Early Version is on a Micro Seiki BL-91L.

Kuzma 4 Point and Helius Omega Silver Ruby on the EAR Discmaster.

Kuzma Airline Linear Tracker, 2nd Helius Silver Ruby and Schick 12" on a Custom Redpoint Turntable.

Triplanar VII on a Steve Dobbins Garrard 301 (Oil Bearing, Cream Finish).

Townshend Rock 7 with Copper Helius Omega tonearm.

Dual VPI JMW 12" Tonearms on a VPI TNT 6 with HRX Dual Motor, Rim Drive.

 

In the main listening system, 5 turntables are active with 10 tonearms setup :) It's analog heaven for me...

 There are a few more turntables not mentioned....a second Luxman PD 444, Denon DP 59L, Sony PS-X700 Biotracer.

 

EDIT:  I should at least add a FEW pictures, else its boring text!
