Sound & Vision

Sound

The centre piece of the music system is a Pioneer MEP7000 multi entertainment player coupled to a Pioneer DJM5000 digital mixer. A music crate facility is provided by a 32GB USB pen drive; the full music library is stored on a 320GB portable had drive. A Pioneer CMX3000 dual CD player provides two additional CD drives with full DJ facilities. Sound output is produced through a pair of active Yamaha HS50M studio monitors. For pre fade listening I use either a pair of Pioneer HDJ1000 , Technics RPDH1200 or Sony MDR-V700 DJ headphones. Vocal input is from a Shure SM58 microphone. Sound processing is catered for by a Pioneer EFX1000 processor.

Back up facilities are a Denon DN1800F twin CD deck mated to a Citronic CDM 10:4 mixer.

For vinyl listening, I use a Technics SL1210 record deck.

All the music systems can be fed into a hi-fi system which produces it's sound via a pair of Tannoy 12" dual concentric Little Gold Monitors.

 

Vision

The big Camera is a Canon EOS5D SLR with 3 canon red ring lenses (17-40 f4.0L, 24-105 f4.0L IS, 70-200 f4.0L). Illumination is provided by a Canon 580EX Speedlite

For portability, I use a Canon Powershot G11
 

Sound & Vision Processing

The Music machine is a Toshiba Satellite L655-158 (Intel i5-450M processor, 4GB RAM & 500GB hard disc) running Windows 7. All my MP3 files are stored in a 300GB partition.
A Fujitsu P7010 notebook (Intel 1.1GHz Centrino, 1GB RAM & 80GB hard disc) running Windows XP. With a 10.6 inch screen and weighing just over 1.3Kg, this is a truly portable machine (It goes with me on holiday). This machine is primarily used for digital imaging.
For browsing & casual Internet use I use a Fujitsu Stylistic M532 tablet.
