And 2 turntables. And a nasty looking bare mdf lp storage rack. It's a ruddy tip to be honest.....

There are loads of different patterns you can use while waving your willy around :roll:

Is there a reason apart from willy waving to show your system pictures on a forum. Answers on a post card please. I can think of one that makes sense, to accompany a review of system or new product.
