What do you listen to music on? Headphones? Studio monitors? Bookshelf speakers? Give some specifics on what you use to rock out.
Today I scored a pair of 1970 Dynaco A-25's. Really rich bass and the treble can reach all of the highs without a problem. It's a tweeter/woofer combo, so It's like having 2 10'' subs and 2 3 inch tweeters. It's fantastic!
I've got a home theatre system which works pretty nicely with the whole music while playing games bit.
The brand is paradigm.

Nice. I'm thinking of getting some sort of surround system and also upgrading my soundcard a little bit. These Dynaco's are facking huge... each one weighs like 50 pounds.
I use a pair of Studio Monitor Series DJ Headphones MDR-V700DJ for DJ'ing and chilling out to music. And some Event TR6 Biamped Tuned Reference Studio Monitors for producing and sometimes chillin out. And Logitech® Z-5450 Digital 5.1 Speaker System... For all out listening pleasure.
:P There you go. Sorry about the double post(i'm not really sorry).
I have ADVENT surround speakers from the 70's (used to be my dad's and are hella expensive,) custom made 7:1 speakers, surround 4:1 KINYO speakers, and Technics surround headphones. I mix and match but tend to stick to the headphones more.

Go 70's stuff! Seriously. The sound technology back then ruled more than it does today. I wish they'd resume production of these models... they're so good. They aren't really built for the music today, but nonetheless, they work wonderfully.
30$ studio headphones for writing music (they actually sound pretty good for the price). Mdoel is Phillips SBC HP250 incase anyone cares.
Speaker system is Logitech’s X-230, which is also a nice set of speakers for 50$.
Nothing amazing, but I am in my room when I make my music now. My music studio where I use to write music had 2 gigantic monitors, but it was kindda cold in there so I just left and came up to my bedroom instead. It's cozy, as shown below

That's really sexy. I'm digging the piano wallpaper.
some old harman/kardon's from 96 or 95, i dont really know...
as far as entertainment like car? JL audio. for in home and gaming: pioneer
two 8 inch speakers, I wanna be able to hook my bass amp up to it, but alas i cannot :'(
I use a pair of headphones (more specifically, Sennheiser HD 280s) through a crappy onboard laptop sound card, which I plan to upgrade soon. The next step after that is to get a decent headphone amp to complement the headphones.
At the moment i'm using a pair of sony DJ headphones, they're actually awesome quality, and also very comfortable, unlike some headphones. When I want to use speakers, I have a set of boston 4.1 surrounds.
two 200 watt computer speakers bought back in like 95 or 96 when i bought duke nukem 3d. i think it was one of those years. all i know is that i used to use 'em with my old windows 3.1 computer and they still sound bad-ass.

Er... Then you're getting like a quarter of the musical experience.
behold my noob powers!
I have the following setup to make my music.
soundcard purchased in 1998 (I have an old computer from 1998 to boot!)
and then people ask me why it takes me so long to make something that doesn't represent glorified mother board bleeps.
I'd upgrade, but both my parents are very against me making music, and so I have to do it below the radar.

why are they against you? :(
I have the audio out of the pc and into a switch to choose between a set of 5.1 surround cans and a generic 5.1 home theater system. I also have a second pc that uses just a crappy little set of 2.1 desktop speakers.
Although I tell myself to check my levels on all three and to burn a cd to check it in the car as well, I never actually do.
Some of the worst stuff that I've done has been using the headphones - usually sounds fine on those but the levels are generally way off when playing back over the externals.
I also have these ...uh.. stick on ... umm... soundpads I guess - they're supposed to be put on a door, a poster, a box or pretty much any thin-walled high transmission surface and it'll turn whatever you stick it to into a speaker They're still in the original box though cuz' I got 'em off the sale rack at target for like $1.50 or something and I haven't found a good use for them yet - I also have a paper cup with a string attached via a small knot through a hole in the back but it doesn't work very well...
I've got two speakers made by my self.
One just bass 150 W , and the other is 100 W bass , 30 mid , and 5 hi freq.
Actualy i cant use those goods now coz i need a new amplifier , wich is shiping to me right now.
It suits me just fine right now but my stupid AC97 (soundcard) does not let me have that much fun. :(
Thats why i am getting me E-MU 1820M as soon as i can. I wish i had it now , lol.
Sorry if this does not make any sense. (bad grammar ;))
Philips cordless headphones (not great because they are IR and therefore hiss quite badly), and some kind of strange (Cambridge Soundworks) 'Four Point Surround' PC speaker set with a separate bass cone, that my parents got from a jumble sale or something. I don't use the quad though, just two of the treble speakers (which are great quality for being only about 3" cubed) and the subwoofer under the desk.

So essentially...you mix in mono??
Currently on shitty as headphones. My philips 2.1 system got fucked up somehow.
Oh yeah API i'm not tryin to burst your bubble but what is it about the 70's systems that you like compared to todays systems. Is it perhaps todays systems reveal flaws more clearly in the music of the period? ie pops, n crackles, etc

What I meant was... I wouldn't be able to get a better soundsystem than these speakers i have hooked up right now without busting 600 dollars. The technology back then was solid
