Here's my lil' old tower.....6 years old as of this past February. Still alive and kicking quite well!! It's the last of the AMD Athlon Barton core cpu's. 3200XP+ with a Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro2 (rev2.0). It has 1.5GB of DDR333 ram, Aeroflow cpu cooler, ATI 9800 Pro modded to 9800XT, Soundblaster Audigy 2 soundcard, 80GB Western Digital boot hdd and a 40GB Maxtor/60GB Seagate for mass storage. LiteON DVD burner and Antec Superlanboy case. It's old I know, but it's been good to me over the past 6 years. I do plan on building me a new machine when funds allow. My speakers are a pair of Yamaha PC speakers that I hard wired a Sony 8" powered subwoofer to. For as cheap as it cost me, ($114) it sounds quite good but I think the Axioms will make a marked improvement indeed!!

Here's my current system: HP with Athlon 64 X2 and LightScribe dual layer burner. My monitor is a 17" LG LCD, and I also have a 250GB external drive for storing music and home movie projects. I also use a USB Dazzle for analog video capture (you can see the Sharp VHS deck in the bottom of the desk in this pic. I'll post the pic when I get home.

I am now into year 5 with my Dell 400SC Poweredge server, upgraded and modified. I'm running XP Pro and a 3.4 ghz Northwood Pentium 4 CPU. These bottom of the line servers were sold dirt cheap and turned out to bear a striking resemblance to the Dimension 8300 desktops. Mine has an M-Audio 2496 Audiophile soundcard, 3 gigs of RAM, and runs cool and quiet. Sure, it looks like those monoliths in "2001: A Space Odyssey", but it still does the job. I am not a gamer, but audio quality is important to me for both movies and music.

Great looking setups.

What would guys use this more on games, music or movies on your PC?

My PC is used for music and the occasional movie. The gamers I've met tend to prefer multichannel set-ups. 2.1 is just fine by me. Posted Image

Here's my setup. I have a 20" Apple iMac that I mainly use for recording music with Logic Studio. As you can see, the cheap Creative speakers don't exactly make it easy when doing some mixing as they are not very accurate. This results in me having to remix tracks multiple times to get things right. The Axiom speakers would definitely make it easier to mix tracks as they would definitely be more accurate than the Creative speakers.

Ron has been on me about getting an Apple iMac with my next computer purchase. I like the 20 inch screen model but the 24 is just too big.

My PC:
http://alexandriahop....0218_a5c77.JPG
It's a Dell Vostro 200 with an Intel E6750 Core 2 Duo, 4GB of RAM, onboard video and an Audigy 2 ZS soundcard. It has a 160GB SATA boot drive, a 500GB SATA programs drive, a 750GB Seagate external for music, and two 1TB WD external drives for movies and TV shows along with a Samsung 16x DVD+/- RW burner.
I am currently using some cheap plastic speakers that have a frequency range somewhere between 500HZ and 12kHz. Posted Image
I use headphones more often than not, but I'd rather have some good speakers!

My wife and I use this computer daily.
Some things involve sound like music, games, movies and HDTV.
We are very much in need of upgraded sound.

Thank you!

Here's my computer! A little emachine with lots of stuff added to it.

MS Vista Home Basic
Pentium 4 Cedar Mill
2 GB DDR2 RAM
160GB/250GB HDD
DVD-/+R/W
DVD-/+/R/W/RAM
Emu 1212m audio (for high quality analog recording and small scale home studio work)
ATI Radeon 300XE PCIe video
19" LCD monitor

I'm using an Altec Lansing sub/sat system that I got at the local Office Depot clearance table for $10. They sound pretty good but I'm sure are nothing compared to the speakers in this contest!!! The best thing about them is that it was easy to velcro them to my monitor. I'll bet my studio quality audio card would sound fantastic through the Axiom system.

If I won, I would use the new monitor on this set up and replace my daughters 14"crt with this one. I am positive that the Axiom speakers will sound better than my current ones.

Edit: WOW! This is my 1,000th post!

Here ia a quick shot of our office computer. It has an old Yamaha sub (about 10 years old) and a pair of cheap Dell speakers (free from work). We use this system a lot for the work we bring home. Usually, the ipod is playing in the background. I also use this pc to sneak in a quick session of FEAR. It really could use an update.

Thanks for the opportunity here at HTF.
