Re: house on C5 - what hifi kit

Speakers sound like these, but the turntable could be anything - I know Nottingham Analogue make one out of a 70,000 year old log - the Anna Log indeed........(and they say you can't polish a EDITED).

Re: house on C5 - what hifi kit

I cant rememer if its series 1-3 or just one of them, but house uses a Sota turntable, they're listed in teh credits.

I found a site giving his whole set up but cant find it now!

"Bella Luna speakers built by Dueval in Germany, and US-made Thor Audio valve amplifiers" apparently

Re: house on C5 - what hifi kit

Can we at least agree on the fact that Dr. House has a kick ass Hi-Fi?

I thnk JD and i are talking about House's home set up, which may be the same T/t as in the office, but i couldn't tell.

House does seem to have the perfect home/office.
