What inspired you?
In setting up our A/V equipment we focused on sound quality, and minimizing clutter. Searching for a CD from our large collection was becoming difficult so we used the Olive Musica music server to encode and store all our CDs to a lossless codec (flac). We also use the Olive to stream internet radio stations via its Ethernet connection.
Everything goes through an ARCAM receiver, including the Mac, which we access via Bluetooth mouse and keyboard, audio is output via Thiel CS 2.4 speakers. Lastly, a Logitech Harmony universal remote allows us to use all our equipment via one remote.
Allow equipment to breathe, that's why the receiver is on top of the sideboard, and also why we removed the back off the sideboard.
