Not that I'm picking on anyone in particular as many photos are just criminal, but take as an example the guy with two Mackie SRM450's in his living room. Unless he lives in a detached house in the middle of a field, he will never be able to get those speakers up to the volume they were intended to be used at and they will just sound noisy. They are PA speakers, and are really not a good choice for a home DJ set up.
I take it this is aimed at me since I'm the one with those speakers (not the only one I'm sure), but who are you to judge what I buy and how I use it?, for your imformation I DO live in a detached house, and I DO have them cranked close to full pretty much everytime I have them on, the reason I got these as my last set of speakers which were 12" floorstanders, still didn't go loud enough and still give detail in the music, so for me I had no choice, I haven't had these long but they have been used in a way afew times that the money was worth it, and this summer there gonna pay for themselves over and over.
As for the cost of things, I see that there IS A LOT of expensive gear in this thread that is only used for bedroom stuff, but soo what, its there money, they can spend it how they please, also it depends on the value of money to that individual, who gives a shit about spending 2 grand on speakers when you make that money in 2 weeks, same as someone buying a 100 grand car when they earn a million a year, when they could of got a great brand new car for 25.
And as for little things people can do too improve sounds and setup, yes there are, I know for me the speakers are too close and sometimes not pointing the right direction, but I sure as hell am not going to empty the room and cover the walls in egg boxes and shit.
Anyway end of rant, just getting sick of people moaning about what other people decide to do with there money, gear etc etc.
