    I'm pretty hopeless - the only piece of equipment I can identify is the EMM Labs CDSA. What turntable, preamp, power amp, and speakers are those? And what are the strange transparent speakers at the back with the lips?

    I recognize the tape deck as a Studer C-37 that has been removed from its original cabinet. The turntable looks like an old VPI TNT with gussied up feet.

    Preamp and power amp are from Viola Labs (Solo+ Bravo), while phonostage is from Audia. Speakers are the Avalon Isis, room treatment is from Acustica Applicata (including the Poliphemo resonators, those transparent columns on the back) and racks are from Music Tools.
    All the best,

    Does anyone besides me wonder how a listener actually gets to the t'table to play a record (in the Hanoi system?)

    Oh I have less space and manage to do it too.

    It's not the amount of space but rather the positioning that seems awkward.

    The camera probably foreshortened the depth so there is room behind the amps. Still looks awkward.

    Myles, where do systems in the second picture live?
