My setup for audio

July 28, 2012

I like good music. And I don’t like partial solutions. Recently I decided to invest some time and money into my sound system. Due to lack of space I decided it has to integrate nicely with my current home PC running Linux. It turns out, that you can get really nice quality! Read more…
