Your Favorite Equipment & Software

post your favorites, what you like to use. if you're not a tekkie just post what player you use etc mainly anything pertaining to audio/video and this hobby. make an endless list of everything from your tv to your preferred walkman if you like, we will read it. In fact, I encourage you to try to bore us

I would've made it a poll, but it would be too hard to get every option in there.

okay, I'll start...this is the stuff I'm using, in some cases I have better stuff that isn't hooked up just now other times I'm plainning an upgrade like we all are... not every last thing I own is listed, just the stuff I've been most using recently.

please add your comments!!
