What do you use to listen to your music with?

Ive got my yamaha surround receiver hooked up to my 15'' Sharp CP-9860 speakers (in their day they probably cost 300$ which is like a billion of todays dollars) they are junk but they sound way better than most the garbage out there. I also have a nice center channel speaker. But ultimately I'm building new speakers. 3 10'' in each. Upgrade the speakers in the center channel. And ive got some rear surround speakers to add too.

They are RoomLenses. Hollow all the way through the manifold base. They affect the room. In this case I was using them to make the rack disappear sonically. I have since moved both the rack and the speakers farther back. The rack is butted close to the wall and the speakers are now in front of the rack so it's no longer interfering

At work I have a Sony A/V receiver, Sony CD changer, a pair of KLM speakers, as well as single RCA, Panasonic and Optimus speakers. Most of the time I play music off YouTube through my laptop, but I also have DVD and MP3 players hooked into the system.

At home I have a Sony receiver, (I think I took the CD player to the river house, but I have tons of thrift store equipment to replace it). The 5 speakers are a small set of Pioneer. Like at work, I listen to You Tube through my PC, but I also have DVD and cassette player hooked up.

At the river house I have a JBL receiver, can't remember brand of CD player, a pair of small indoor outdoor KLM speakers and a larger pair that I can't remember the brand. The big speakers are bottoming out at high volume, so I need to dig in my stereo shed and see if I can find a better pair. (I also have a surround sound amp coupled with a tuner and dvd player for outside tunes)

On the trail my mp3 players are an 8 gig and a 16 gig AGPTEK. Both with additional 64 gig micosdcard. I use the dollar ear buds. They last just as long in the rain as the high priced ones. Not sure of the brand of the speaker, but it was 20 bucks at Walmart. About 3-4 ounces, so it doesn't go on long hikes.

Do you find the Room Lenses to really dampen well and make a big imaging and soundstage diff to you? I have heard a couple people sing their praises but never really encountered them besides at CES a while back
