    Like your preamp! I use a Marantz Model 3650 Preamp which is slowly fading. :( I need to get on ebay and find a "new" premp...

    Yea, I forgot to put the preamp in my source list. Rane is mostly known for their pro equipment and this preamp is probably most common in radio stations. It has both unbalanced RCA outputs and balanced screw terminal outputs, so it is very adaptable to different situations. I have the TT and preamp hooked up right now into my computer soundcard for transcribing some old records. Having the preamp is very handy for this kind of situation.

    I've got:

    Panasonic 5 DVD changer
    Philips DirecTiVo DSR6000
    Sony 400 Disc CD changer
    Sony Playstation 2
    And my DELL Dimension 8200 PC with Pioneer DVD-Rw and SB Extigy (sometimes, mainly for webcasts and MP3's)
    Philips 27'" Standard def TV

    Receiver: Kenwood VR407 - Dolby Pro logic/Dolby Digital/DTS 5.1, S-Video switching, 6 channel input

    Kenwood center, front, surrounds and 120 watt subwoofer

    Toslink to SPDIF converters (My receiver only has 2 toslink inputs)

    I was going to add a tape deck and turntable but I realized they would be useless as I have nothing remaining to play in them.

    I have no magic wires (monster cable) and the like, just ordinary cables

    Soon to be added:
    Rear Projection HDTV (plasma costs too much, and I don't like it)
    Dedicated Home Theater PC
    DirecTV HDTV receiver

    There are a whole bunch of computers, and audio and video equipment in the house, but much of it belongs to my parents or to my siblings, so since the original question was "what's in YOUR system".
    I'll talk ONLY about what's in my bedroom that's mine.
    I have a Sony KV-20V80 20" standard def tv with over 500 lines of horizontal resolution and an S-video input(which was very rare on a bedroom set when I got it in late summer 1998).

    Sony DVP-NS315B DVD Player

    Magnavox VR9360 4 Head Hi Fi VCR

    Old Toshiba 4 head mono vcr

    Echostar 3900 Satellite Reciever

    Marantz RS 2252 Stereo Reciever

    Jensen CJ-R Bookshelf Speakers

    Sennheiser HD-477 Studio Monitor Headphones

    The computer I have in my bedroom is a HP Pavilion 6535 with Windows 98 2nd edition, an Intel Celeron processor running at 466mhz, upgraded to 192 megs ram, and an HP Pavilion MX70 monitor.
    The computer also has a wireless connection to the cable modem via our wireless broadband home network.

    There's also ofcourse av furniture to house the audio and video equipment as well as furniture to house the computer equipment.
    My bedroom isn't even the master bedroom, so after you add in a bed, a recliner, and a computer chair into the mix there isn't tons of room left over.
    That's why I don't have a printer or a scanner hooked up to the computer in my bedroom, there simply isn't enough room so the 2nd scanner and the 2nd printer are in the basement collecting dust not hooked up to anything.
    I used to have a Sony Webtv Plus and I loved that thing, and I sold it on ebay after my parents got another puter so I got their old one.
    I REALLY REALLY miss the webtv plus :( even though I have a broadband puter now.
    I'll attach a bunch of pics of the audio, video, and computer equipment.
