DLS Ms6a components
Mono sub amp from parts express
DLS 12" sub
using car audio speakers as they will be able to handle harsher environments than the home audio stuff as the room is like a porch area as well
havent decided on the amp as yet
presently i have 2 channel sony integrated amp
total cost for the entire system should be under 10k
will post pics of this build up when we start

My current hi fi DIY project (small room):
Seas W15Ly001 Midranges
Peerless HDS Tweeters
Custom Passive Xover
Currently redoing those bookshelf enclosures
Marantz CD player
I have a Pioneer integrated amp, but looking into a little better integrated...hard to find the ones I'm interested in trinidad tho.
OAudio Bash 500W sub amp
Image Dynamics 12" sub SEALED...looking to upgrade to something else later on.
Just finishing up the aesthetics on that enclosure as well.
Also doing a DIY 5.1 project (for larger rooms) next month with some other stuff.
On the cheaper side of things, there are headphones..a great reference for personal listening except for visceral bass and lifelike sound stages.
I use the Grado SR60 daily at home...the best value I have ever come across in audio of any form.
A very cheap but good headphone is the Koss KSC75. Lots of bass from a compact headphone.
Also have a Sennheiser HD650 run off an Antique sound lab OTL tube headphone amp...The best midrange and highs I could ever hope for...but I don't use it.
Later on in the year, gonna start experimenting with high efficiency setups for larger rooms.
