Office/Nerd Cave/2 Channel Finally Done

ZLTFULZLTFUL Posts: 4,806
Well, my office was framed about 2 weeks after we moved in to our new house in Oct 2015.
Fast forward to today and I finally got my office finished up which tripled as my 2 channel room and nerd cave to keep all of my nerd memorabilia in check.

I actually have several rigs set up in this space...2 complete 2 channel and a headphone rig along with a near field setup on my desk.

The pictures show the 2 full 2 channel systems.

    Nice looking setup and nice gear. What kind of audio rack is that?

    A dark snap of the headphones and Little Dot. Source is laptop or my phone usually but I also connect it to a Cambridge SACD player now and then.

    I like it, but I have to say I am a socks off listener. Only the bare essentials. Makes for a cleaner presentation and every so slightly more detailed highs...

    Only questions I have are this:

    1. How many dedicated 20 amp circuits
    2. Whats the equipment list (cables and hardware)
    3. Where is the fully stocked mini-fridge.... you cant seriously have to MOVE for drinks

    I plan on building a panel to fit into the frame around the networking equipment and am covering the electrical box with stickers to annoy Russ.

    It's only 2x24" and a 19".
    Work won't spring for the trio of 37" ultrawides I wanted...

    And having spent the entire night in here working tonight, I could easily take a nap here.
