Any audiophile in the room?

I'm sure you all have a neat setup with foobar installed and remotely controlled with your smartphone or tablet, but who of you is a real audiophile??

What's your speaker setup? What's amplifying your nice music? Or what cable wires the whole thing?

Do you have a great dedicated room for your listening delights?

Do you have a $50K setup and play mp3s with it?

I don't have a really expensive system, but here it is:

  • Amp: 
    • Yamaha RX-V671
  • Speakers:
    • FR, FL: Tannoy Mercury V1
    • C: KEF iQ2c
    • SL, SR: Canton Movie 60 CX (I've left them from my previous setup)
    • SW: None
  • Cables: 
    • QED Silver Anniversay XT for FR, FL and C.
    • A normal one for SL and SR.
  • Music Source: 
    • HTPC with HDMI output (192kHz / 24-bit) + foobar2000 (of course)
  • Remote controllers:
    • Nexus 7
    • Samsung Galaxy SIII

It's not a great setup but it doesn't sound bad at all..
The music I try to have is always FLAC with a good sample rate and bit depth.
I have both stereo and 5.1 songs. 

I don't have a dedicated room for this, so I use the system for music, movies and TV.

Feel free to share your thoughts, ideas, pics or whatever here. 
Let's see who's got the best setup!
