no need to change the cardridge, the have all games on 1 cardridge ( everdrives )
thats how i like it

The LCD is in the same room , for my Ps3-PC and old XBOX
( that i saved from trash .. now its a great Media and Arcade-Emu Box

And to "round" things up, i have also a pinball machine ( was local )
Blimey! That's some serious kit! I wanted to get a MAME cabinet except transportation and space are the issues faced. Considering you have an original xbox, the collection could be reduced to the one console with emulators lol... not the same but hey, you did it with C64

My Amiga retro room

This is what happened a few months ago. I was turning 38 and suddenly found my old Amigas in the basement and then just started to upgrade them, ordering all kinds of stuff and more Amigas. I even got a CDTV for free from someone I know. Also, is an old CRT monitor like this, when connected to the Indivison ECS Scandoubler worthy of comparison to an original Commodore 1084S with regards to picture quality?

Amiga 500 with Gotek Floppy Emulator, ECS Scandoubler and ACA 500 + ACA 1233

This TV is connected via RGB scart cable and has very sharp and vivid colors. Amiga 600 + ACA 620 ver.2 (Oh, and there is another Amiga 600 down there below the TV

2 Amiga 500s and one complete CDTV in wardrobe pluss alot of other Amiga stuff

I know, bad picture quality taken with my old fashion phone. I hate touch phones and have no interest of them

Well I moved like three times already since the last time I posted, so here's my work in progress arrangement in my new home.

First the game consoles, they are all in my living room:

Starting from the top-left corner:
- Amstrad GX4000 with C4CPC flash cartridge
- Nintendo Wii, custom firmware and with a hard drive full of stuff
- Xbox 360
- My Sony amplifier
- Sega Megadrive, japanese early model, with european Mega-CD model 1 and a Mega Everdrive cartridge.
- Sega Dreamcast
- Amiga CD32

Plenty of room for new things, I really want to get a SNES, never had one!
I expanded the Ikea table to an extra module, I used to have just the 2 module setup in my previous home. Handy little thing.

Now we wander into the cave, which is very work in progress right now:

Really happy about the dual 1084S-D setup, I got the second one yesterday! It's the one on the left.
- A600 with ACA620, 1B CF HD and 2GB on PCMCIA SD card. The thing on top is a Pyramid MIDI interface. Slik Stik joystick.
- A1200 with MX1230 030@50Mhz w/50Mhz 68881, 64MB Fast RAM, 1GB CF HD and 1GB on PCMCIA SD card. AMAS2 sampler/MIDI interface conencted to it.
- C64C with 1541 Ultimate II interface, and a Kerberos MIDI interface sometimes. Slik Stik joystick.

I gotta bring my 1571 disk drive in, and also try to get again an external Amiga floppy of some kinda, really want an A1011.

Not shown, on the left of this photo: all my music setup.

my girlfriend made all of this for me, also the framed painting with outrun and other favorite games of me done on them (strijkkraaltjes, don't know english word ). she's very handy. all systems you see are hooked up at once and can be played at any time. my ps4 and other ps3 are in living room downstairs.

the painting of ico was made by my dad several years ago.

@gjb1985 (best year ever ): I think that you don't have a man's cave but a museum; marvellous in any case.

Well... You somehow "closed" this thread in 2016 with such an amazing setup, but you know that we all like to see whatever kind of man's cave starting from the must humble we can think of.

I just want to bump this thread as I want to see more posts

Thinking now, a video would be much better than some photos at least with such kind of showrooms like yours

Edit: I'm actually improving my man's cave setup after watching a couple of videos from a female Amiga enthusiast here:

I've actually changed and get rid of a lot of cables and so, improved the quality of them/some are shorter now, and it's all also much tidier now

One is the man cave in the summer house, and one is the small room in the loft - I refused to put my pride and joy a1200 in the summer house.
