My poor student set up.


Standard Member
Hi all, this it my first post here, so hello. :hiya:

Im now 17, I got into AV, mostly audio at a very young age. I got into AV from my dad really, hes a big AV fan with his flat screens and huge DVD/VHS collection. He works for JVC as well, and is currently a sales manager for them, which helps. :thumbsup:

Below is where I spend a fair few hours of my time each day. The room was painted when I was 10, im now 17, so its due for a change, however we might be moving soon so I have left it.

Remember my camera skills are rubbish and im a poor student that doesn't get ema (although im currently job hunting for something part-time.) :suicide: .

Here goes:

My TV area contains:

Sony Trinitron 28'' CRT. (Would be a LCD there if flipping driving lessons didn't cost so much!)
JVC TH-A10R (I love this system, the sub is huge.)
Xbox 360 (Maybe set to be the best console ever?)
The stand cost £15 from a catalog. (So thats not to bad then.)

All in all, I have not spent anymore than £350 on this part of myset up.




My PC area:

It contains:

JVC LCD TV (I use this just as a PC moniter)
BiOrb 30litre fish tank (Special, as you never have to clean it out)
Dreamcast games that cost about £2 each. :thumbsup:
And a Fujitsu Siemans PC.


My music area: (god I hate the wallpaper now)

It contains:

JVC Boomblaster (Limtied Etd blue one :D )
JVC G-Max system (150watts rms subs each side, banging. :devil: )


Last of all I would like you show you this:

My 1 of 100 limited official black PGR100 Xbox360 console. (Joeboyz is my online tag) :clap:
Currently being stored.


Thanks for looking!

Hi Rhino, nice and tidy set up, when I was 17 I had a Dansette auto changer with 2 watts of mono output and I thought it was the bees knees, your system will grow with you so "Yours is no Disgrace".:) As another poster has said you have a special X-Box there try to keep the original packageing and manual etc as in years to come it might be worth more than you paid for it.
