Anything modular synth related that is not format specific.
Old school here. Custom output module to a Carver PM-600 to JBL L100S speakers. I have two other synth setups in the room, both with Carver PM-600s. One driving JBL 4311 Control Monitors and the other driving JBL L80S. I like Carvers and JBL.

A pair of 1980-vintage Klipsch Cornwall speakers (3-way: 15" woofer/mid horn/HF horn) driven by an Electron Kinetics Eagle 2A amplifier. (Portable it ain't.) FYI: Wendy Carlos uses four Cornwalls as her studio monitors.

I have a vision of making a rolling workstation for my synth / studio equipment to make it portable from my office to the rest of the house. I plan for most of it to be of eurorack in form factor (as discussed in another thread) and so the sound reproduction would be attached to this workstation. Therefore, if it works I'd like it to not be too bulky.
So far this is what i ended with :
Every equipment is on a rack jaspers (not rolling yet).
Eurorack, drum machines, synths -> Patchbay -> ZOOM Livetrak L12 -> Palmer MONICON -> Genelec 8010.
The palmer monicon is crucial because of the volume of the genelec (very loud and no control on monitor) otherwise is to loud going out from LIvetrak and nobody wants to keep every fader to minimum.
Really good monitors, perfect IMO for a "nomad" rig. You can easily fix them to the rig.
I use the patchbay, were everything is wired (Misc Synth + Effect pedals), so i can use the front panel to deviate signals to pedals or synth outs to IN of Digitakt for example.
All these equipements are powered by 19" rack power strips.

Threads like this always make me look at my mismatched pair of PA speakers and question my sanity. I use an Alto Professional TS110A for the left and a Behringer MPA40BT-Pro for the right. It was what I had resources for at the time. Now... With many passions, I never quite get around to upgrading them.
