    Hey everyone I want to start building a Home studio like this one. I really like the way its set out and its something that would be perfect for my room. I have a mic and pop screen.

    I need to know how much it will cost to have a studio set up similar to this.

    EDIT : I would be looking to get the Speakers, Desks, Foam, All the Mixers and I don't even know what else he has on that second desk. Is it mixers? lol.. daamn. That setup is so rich. EVEN THE CHAIR :O

    Just a space or the equipment collection?

    With all that gear included? thousands
    With just the racks and foam and desk and stuff? hundreds

    You'd probably need a better idea of exactly what you want, if possible.
    New or used?

    A used digi 002 like that will probably cost you a few hundred quid now, cos it's getting old. If avid even support it anymore, it wont be long till they don't.
    The more recent digi 003 will sting you closer to a grand, or more if you buy new.

    Do you want an imac? They start at a grand too. A mac mini and a screen might be adequate through for closer to 550.
    A pc could be even cheaper than that.

    So even on two items you could be looking at <800 or >2000 depending what you want.

    Hd280 headphones are about 90 new. Just thought I'd throw that in since I recognised them. :P

    Some of the Equipment would be used. Especially the Speakers.

    I don't need a computer. I already have a 4GB brand new Laptop. I would get the headphones and the speakers and probably a chair like that lol

    Probably the speakers, Mixers would be bought used and the headphones, desks and chair would be bought new.

    Not liking the "In the Corner" Set-Up but it looks really nice.

    Here is photo of mine:
    Built the desk for $50.
    Built the rack for almost nothing as the wood was left over from another project. The Rack Rail cost about $40.
    Covered and mounted the black Owens Corning 703 Compressed Fiberglass Panels behind the Rack myself using a mounting system I designed and built.
    Built the Acoustic Panels on the wall behind the desk too!

    Don't forget, you'll need to buy microphones and cables and microphone stands.

    There are some nice low-cost USB interfaces and mixers these days.....
    The PreSonus 16.0.2 FIREWIRE mixer got a real nice review in the UK based Sound On Sound Magazine.

    Wish it was a higher res photo, but I see what I think is a 737 and that alone is over $2k USD.

    Plus there is all the unknown like plugins, mics, cable etc...

    If I had to round house guess this guy has well over $10k in gear alone.
