I like your gamecube but I'm scared you have a bunch of drum things.
Hehe thanks, yeah i do have a lot of music game controllers dotted around my room. Donkey konga is way more fun when you have the bongos to play it on. Also have the "not quite arcade" sized Hori pro taiko no tatsujin controller, that thing is a beast. Sadly i can only use it on Wii, wish i could make it work on the switch.

Holy shit so many of you have such nice looking setups. I'm pretty envious, my own gets a big upgrade the second my Trump bux come in.

I'm always glad when this thread gets bumped. I might finally post my setup after I get my new speakers in ~a month.

Yeah. It's not bad and it drives my AKG 7xxs just fine.

I might upgrade at some point but I think that most of my music being mp3 is a bigger problem than the dac.
Lol nice. Time to upgrade to FLAC :) A friend of mine has this same DAC/HP AMP

After years, I finally feel good enough to actually post here. I want to thank all of you sexy mofos who have inspired me to level up in life. You guys are the real MVPs.

I just moved in about 3 months ago to my own place and redid the entire place. Got an Xbox One X, PS4 PRO which is getting loud as fuck and a new 75 inch Sony 4K HDR, and Soundbar. Did the mounting myself doing the wiring through the walls. It was scary as hell but worth it. I'm looking forward to replace both consoles this fall.

I may be slightly excited for today...

Also a few things were recently added to my setup, all purchased at yard sales! Creative SoundBlaster X7 / Creative E-MU speakers and a Halo Mega Bloks set

I'm still happy, to have seen your first post in this thread. That controller wall is my favourite design piece in my appartment. :D

Thanks again for the inspiration!

I just realised I haven't posted our London setup in this year's thread. Not a huge amount of updates as we have only been a couple of months there this year, but I will have new pictures of our Finnish pandemic escape shortly.

As always, this is not purely gaming related, rather just a look at the flat in general as some people seem to enjoy that and we don't do separate cribs threads.


Lounge and dining area

The heart of the flat, where we spend most of our time. A Genelec 7.0 system provides sound to the space, with a three Genelec 8351s in the front, and four ceiling-mounted Genelec 8341s at the rear. The TV is Sony 85x9505B, chosen for its low input latency and high quality 4K HDR image, but I will get rid of it this year as the performance in daylight is piss poor compared to Samsung. So I will likely get a Q90 series or similar TB.

The Genelec speakers where chosen because they allow us to hear the video games closest to what the likes of Capcom or Bioware intended. The large amount of reflective glass surfaces was a particular challenge, but Genelec used their software to minimise intrusive artefacts resulting from the hard surfaces in the space.

KIT LIST - Sony 85x9505B TV, Genelec 8351 speakers. A bespoke media unit, with Xbox One X, PS4 Pro, Switch and a Titan X Pascal gaming PC, through a Marantz 8802a AV amp. Hatches for Switch and PlayStation VR. Togo sofas from Ligne Roset.












Snug

This is the most indulgent and fun area in the flat. We designed it as a comfy late night escape, a cave where one can retire to late at night when others go to sleep. A Sony 4K TV on the left is hooked up to a Super NES Classic and a NES Classic, making this the classic gaming space. This space also hosts a headphones listening station.

KIT LIST - Sony KD-49X8305C on a Desalto pole, Genelec AIC25 speakers. A bespoke shelving unit with an integrated minibar. Cambridge Audio streamer (Tidal/Spotify), Schiit Yggdrasil DAC, Schiit Ragnarok amp, and Hifiman HE-1000 headphones. NES Mini, Super NES Mini, PlayStation Classic, Analogue NT Mini, Analogue Super NT.














View from Snug to Lounge

Snug terrace is designed to be our 'cigar terrace'. I smoke one cigar every two months with a good friend, always here with a glass of whisky. Reindeer hides remind us of our native Finland.






Kitchen and breakfast bar

I often sit around the breakfast bar with my iPad, reading GAF, or playing Pokemon Go on my phone. TV and front Genelecs in the lounge can be seen on the left side, however in this picture the speakers are in their old position, they were moved on top of the TV later. The coffee machine is integrated on the right hand wall, and it does fantastic cappuccinos.




Breakfast terrace

This is at the front of the lounge. It's very often windy in the City, so getting to have breakfast here is a rare treat. This place was a great escape during the pandemic, we managed to do a couple of candle lit differs here.




Study

This room is mostly for work, and personal management. A bespoke, motorised desk for standing and sitting work. iMac 5K for any desktop games - such as WoW, Starcraft 2 and Dota 2. Framed above the Mac, production drawings of the first Sega Megadrive from June 1989.



KIT LIST - iMac 5K, Genelec AIC25 speakers.


Guest room

I've spent more time of my life in hotels than one should. Our guest room was modelled based on my favourite features of hotels. The bed is large, and has USB and charging slots on the side. A study desk with a comfy chair provides a space for any urgent work. A power jack is hidden under a hatch, so that laptops and iPads can be charged while working. Light blocking curtains darken the room for a good night's sleep.

KIT LIST - bedside Apple docks and USB-C chargers, Genelec AIC25 speakers.




Wine room

This is the latest addition to the flat. We converted one of the bathrooms into a wine room with temperature and humidity control. It turned out to be a bigger job than I thought, with insulation, vapour barrier, level floor, special doors. It houses 370 bottles so it should do approximately a 5 year rotation. We tend to ship stuff back home from the wineries, much cheaper that way.

Bloody hell some of you people are rich. That's some MTV cribs level shit chittagong. I'm envious. What do you do?
Started working delivering letters when I was 9, got a job at Club Nintendo at 13, joined a big corporation at 20, now at the age of 40 I have been working for 31 years, last decade investing in startups. Took my first proper holiday this year.

There are over 100 photos (and a few videos) here but below is a preview, over a decade of effort https://photos.app.goo.gl/hNHcNo7oSpSX7TrK8












Beautiful game room! Well organized and looks super cozy without feeling overdone/bloated. While Chittagong may have my dream house, you have my dream game room. If there is one part of your collection that you love the most, which is it?

Congrats on what appears to be great success! It’s certainly an inspiration to me (even though I’m older that you, lol). The most impressive part of your place, isn’t as much the size or location, but how perfectly organized and furnished your place is. Not an ounce of clutter or extra furniture. Picture like this make me want throw out all my knick knacks and furniture and start fresh, aiming for a clean look like this.

I'm not sure if it counts as a single part but, the main hub with all the consoles is my baby, and the one thing i'd keep if I had to offload everything. Unlike many people who display their systems, these all function and and are modded/wired to produce ideal image quality through various upscalers, etc. It's a wire nightmare, but very cool to have available.
