I have a little corner at school to do my sound design work in the sound studio. this is my personal stuff.
I have a small Peavy 8 channel sound board
Crown d75 amplifiers
two no-name preamps
M-audio mobile Pre
two soon to be replaced studio monitors
and a G5 imac for playback and design.

In the show that I'm putting together at the moment:
Mackie tt 24 sound board
4 Crown XTi 1000 amplifiers
2 Crown XTi 2000 amplifiers
DBX 166XL compressor limiter gate
DBX crossover
My G5 imac will show up for playback
4 JBL speakers that are permanent in the space
8 speakers hidden through out the set.
edit: personus firepod for output from the computer.

I've managed to build up a budget rack for our (mostly musical) theater:

* 18 wireless
--- 12x AKG WMS80, will eventually have to be replaced per FCC
--- 6x Samson Airline 77 w/ AL1 mini clip-on Tx, will be exchanged by mfg per FCC
* 18 channels of compression
--- 4x Behringer MDX4600, vocals
--- DBX 266XL, vocals or instrument
* DOD RTA (just for fun, doesn't really do much)
* Reverb: Lexicon MX200
* CD: Stanton C.500 dual CD player
* EQ: 3x DBX 231 (for six main output channels, 5.1 arrangement)
* Playback: M-Audio Delta 1010 and Delta 66

I'm kind in a bind for how to reply. In the past 8 months I have worked on three different rigs and am in the process of upgrading the most recent rig. None of the equipment is mine which stinks. I guess I'll give you guys the list of equipment I'm upgrading to.

In the rack:
Crown XLS-602D [email protected] - 2RU
DBX 231 - dual 31 band graphic eq - 2RU
Furman PL-8-II - 1RU
Gator GRC 10x12PU
Yamaha MG166C Sound Board
Alto HPA-6 - Headphone Amp - 1RU
