sometime last year.. i made a monitor stand for extra space. it worked perfectly but when i realized i wanted upgrade my sound system and enter into the hi-fi audio.. well.. the old monitor stand took up too much space and actually looked pretty crappy.. <br />
<br />
so i took some square aluminum tubing that was supposed to be for a project that i eventually scrapped.<br />
<br />
i get everything to size.. then i took it to the powdercoaters.<br />
<br />
here is the stuff back with my m-itx build next to it.<br />
<img src="http://s305.photobucket.com/albums/nn203/nafljhy/monitor//m1.jpg" border="0" alt="" onload="NcodeImageResizer.createOn(this);" /><br />
here is the stand top. the supports and feet.<br />
<img src="http://s305.photobucket.com/albums/nn203/nafljhy/monitor//m2.jpg" border="0" alt="" onload="NcodeImageResizer.createOn(this);" /><br />
started riveting the top into the base.<br />
<img src="http://s305.photobucket.com/albums/nn203/nafljhy/monitor//m3.jpg" border="0" alt="" onload="NcodeImageResizer.createOn(this);" /><br />
and an attempted artistic shot<br />
<img src="http://s305.photobucket.com/albums/nn203/nafljhy/monitor//m4.jpg" border="0" alt="" onload="NcodeImageResizer.createOn(this);" /><br />
support and feet assembled and top is rivited<br />
<img src="http://s305.photobucket.com/albums/nn203/nafljhy/monitor//m5.jpg" border="0" alt="" onload="NcodeImageResizer.createOn(this);" /><br />
and all done<br />
<img src="http://s305.photobucket.com/albums/nn203/nafljhy/monitor//m6.jpg" border="0" alt="" onload="NcodeImageResizer.createOn(this);" /><br />
<br />
<img src="http://s305.photobucket.com/albums/nn203/nafljhy/monitor//m7.jpg" border="0" alt="" onload="NcodeImageResizer.createOn(this);" /><br />
<br />
<img src="http://s305.photobucket.com/albums/nn203/nafljhy/monitor//m8.jpg" border="0" alt="" onload="NcodeImageResizer.createOn(this);" /><br />
i didn't include a picture of the old setup as it was just ugly.. and made me sad. <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
Old Setup: ASUS Xonar DX + Klipsch ProMedia 2.1<br />
New Setup: HT Claro+ + B&W CM1s + Cambridge Audio 340A<br />
<br />
but here are pictures of the new setup.<br />
<img src="http://s305.photobucket.com/albums/nn203/nafljhy/monitor//m9.jpg" border="0" alt="" onload="NcodeImageResizer.createOn(this);" /><br />
<br />
<img src="http://s305.photobucket.com/albums/nn203/nafljhy/monitor//m10.jpg" border="0" alt="" onload="NcodeImageResizer.createOn(this);" /><br />
<br />
<img src="http://s305.photobucket.com/albums/nn203/nafljhy/monitor//m11.jpg" border="0" alt="" onload="NcodeImageResizer.createOn(this);" /><br />
<br />
<img src="http://s305.photobucket.com/albums/nn203/nafljhy/monitor//m12.jpg" border="0" alt="" onload="NcodeImageResizer.createOn(this);" /><br />
<br />
and all i can say is that this new setup is flat out amazing. i'm stunned by what i hear from these new bookshelf monitors. <img src="/images/smilies/eek.gif" border="0" alt="" title="EEK!" class="inlineimg" /> <img src="/images/smilies/wheee.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wheee" class="inlineimg" /><br />
