This is my workstation I use at the shop. This is the third dually I've had here now. The first was a dual P3 with IBM DeathStars (bad choice) and the second is on the page following. This one is a brute! By far the fastest, most powerful machine I've ever owned. I never modify my workstations in any manner. They are mission-critical machines that I cannot afford to have down for any length of time.

This is simply the most incredible sound system I've ever heard, much less owned. Sadly though, it is a little too revealing showing flaws in my 320k MP3s so I am now going back through my CD collection and re-ripping the discs as Apple Lossless files - roughly three times the size!
