Will Knight:
My basement is a bit on the small side so my setup just fits the spacing needed for work, music (Playback/Practice/Recording) & movies. All purchased new over time since 1974. 

        Demon 3803 AVR; Samsung BRDVD Player
        Polk RM7500 Series Frt/Cntr/Surrx4 Speakers (1HF, 5.25LF) 
        Polk RM7500 Series Sub (Dual 12)
        Project Debut & Music Hall 5 TTs
        Akai GX747 & Technics X2000 R2Rs

I actually listen to a pair of my PA speakers - 6.5" 2-way boxes, 18Sound 6ND430 midbass, DAS M3 HF. 1.6kHz crossover, and a well-treated cabinet.

Amp is an old Akai AM-2250 and it has the matching AT-2250 tuner. There's also a GL-75 turntable.

Sounds quite nice, and gets used for mixing stuff occasionally.
Having measured the amp, there's almost valve (tube) amp levels of 2nd order harmonic distortion.

If we're watching movies, I have the driver from a Tannoy TS10 subwoofer and a Behringer iNuke with the DSP settings dialled in for the sub. I run the sub amp from the second speaker output on the Akai amplifier, which works fine - the speakers are efficient so they never see enough voltage to clip the input stage of the iNuke.

I've a few parts on-hand for my next home HiFi speakers, but the design is TBC. I'd like to cut out the subwoofer and have a pair of main speakers that can dig below 30Hz on their own.

My wife made me put away my stereo equipment because it "looks ugly". lol.

We don't have the luxury of a "bonus room" of any kind. When it was set up it was a Sansui AUD-II integrated amp with a variety of inputs including Minidisc!

Speakers are things that I've built over the years. I have some open-baffle 1.5 ways that I really like. They use old EV Wolverine 8 incher's. I've also had some old Large Advents and several other speakers I've built.

Tim McCulloch:
I have a "stereo" for listening to music and a packaged 5.1 JBL rig for the home theater.

Stereo has Soundcraftsmen preamp (recapped, rechipped a couple years ago) and Hafler DH500 amp.  JBL monitors, don't recall the number.
