    I'm sure this has been done before but it has been a while I think.
    How about everyone posts a picture of how they have their consoles setup?
    I'll start:
    [​IMG]
    Larger Version Here
    Left to right, top to bottom: NES, RCA switch box (w/ optical switcher and GBA on top), Genesis (w/ SMS adapter), N64, Gamecube, SNES, DC, PS2, and Xbox. (and yes they are all hooked into the system at once...
    The shelf thing most of them are in is from Target - it works great. Probably the most interesting thing though is that the NES, Gen, N64 and SNES all arrived in the system in the last week. I was inspired by your replies to the "favorite" games thread and decided to go back and play the ones I've missed. Its amazing how cheap you can pick up the old systems on eBay these days!

    Millercv,

    I love these threads and it's been too long since the last one.

    I myself would love to post my pics but I don't have a way of hosting them. Though I do look forward to what others have going.

    James, and anyone else that needs...I can host your pictures for you, just email to me and I'll give you a link to the directory so you can post them here. Once I get my hands on a digital camera I'll post some of mine [​IMG].

    I'll have to get my setup online. I've finally got my DC hooked back up (but relagated to my computer setup.)

    System overview:
    [​IMG]
    The TV is a Sony Wega XBR 400
    The speakers are Definitive Technology BP-2000 mains, C/L/R-2000 center, and BP-30 towers (not shown) in the back
    Left Audio Rack (close-up)
    Sherwood Newcastle AM-9080 5-channel amp
    Sony Sat-T60 DirecTivo
    Xbox
    Gamecube
    JVC component switchbox
    Sony MD player
    Sony PS2 (standing on floor to left)
    Right Audio Rack (close-up)
    Anthem AVM-20 Processor
    Toshiba SD-4700 Progressive DVD
    Monster Power HTS-2500
    Sony 400 disc jukebox
    A bunch of messy cables!
    Media Rack (close-up)
    All our DVD's & current video games are stored here
    At the top right you can see the Linksys WAP-11 WiFi hub
    At the bottom right you can (almost) see the Linksys 4 port switch that feeds the WAP-11, the PS2 & the Xbox from the wall port. Mp3 audio is also fed via a coax digital feed to this wall port.
    The wall port originates at the "computer room" some 30 feet away.
    More Video Games
    This is controller storage and where I keep my currently active older consoles. In this case a Dreamcast and Atari Jaguar. This area changes as I also rotate my SNES and occasionally my 3DO.

    Dang Camp - sweet! Like the clean lines of the whole setup. That and the Anthem - nice.

    Do you know what the Scootplex is? Yeah, that's mine.

    (Actually, it's not mine. Every once in a while, I'll play games on it, but most of the time I play them upstairs, in the living room theater)

    Mine can be seen here:

    PC
    I don't have a shot of my overall PC set-up and can't get one tonight since I took my camera to work today and left it there.

    Thanks to Dean, here are some pics of my little pride and joy:
    [​IMG]
    This is the main view of the gameroom system. Here you can see the system: Xbox, Gamecube, PS2, SNES w/Super 8 converter, Genesis w/Sega CD and 32x, 3DO, Dreamcast, Saturn, Turbo Grafx 16, N64, and Game Boy Advance NTSC converter (behind the PS2). To organize it all, I'm using a stack of Pelican system s-video switches. My Laserdiscs are on the left as well as the A/V system.
    [​IMG]
    Here's a view of the DVD rack and some of the games. (My collection of vintage figures fills the case (my other vice).
    [​IMG]
    This is the case on the left of the system. Transformers, Voltron, He-Man and the like.
    [​IMG]
    This is the downstairs system. Primary components are Pioneer Elite receiver, Panny RP-91 DVD, Atlantic Technology THX Ultra speaker set, an RCA 61" HDTV and of course, the only system able to take advantage of it, the Microsoft Xbox. The two Boxes are on a network and we flip a coin to see who gets to play their end of Halo on this system. [​IMG]
    Now, I'm just waiting for us to get DSL service out here in the boonies and then it's Xbox Lives-ville.
    Peace.

    James,
    Love those display cases with the various action figures, especially the TFs. Looks great with all the rest of your gear. [​IMG]

    You'll get amazing results if you move your AT main speakers forward in your downstairs setup. Forward and away from the TV and such between them so they have room to breathe. And slightly toed in to the listening position. You'll get far better imaging and soundstage between them. Worst case scenario you move them back.

    James D S are those glass display cases commercially avail? I've been looking for something like those. Love the display - Makes me want to set up my Lion Bot (Voltron).
