My Home Office Setup


#1

Hi All, this is my first post on the new forum. I have been a keen listener of Mac Power Users for about 2 years now and have been a Mac user for about 10 years.
I love everything Apple so thought I would share my Home Office Setup.

My main machine is an iMac Pro 10 core with 128 Ram 4TB SSD
2 x LG 5k Thunderbolt 3 Monitors
2 x WD Passport 4TB External HD - One for Time Machine and the other for a daily clone of the internal SSD
1 x G Tech 12TB Thunderbolt 3 External HD - Used as a data dump and general storage
2 x Samsung T3 USB 3.1 External SSD - Used as data dump and also to take out on the road with me.
Magic Trackpad, Magic Mouse and Keyboard
Wacom Intuos 5 Medium Tablet
Synology Diskstation 416play 14TB

Printing wise I have Canon PRO 1000 A1 printer, a Colour HP Laser and the Scansnap ix500.

I also have a Homepod, Apple TV 3rd Gen and the first generation iPad Pro 12.9 with Pencil.

I love this setup and really enjoy working on it !

Wow what an amazing setup!! I love it. Very tastefully color coordinated.


#4

2 questions: is that really a snes console under your tv and what do you do with all that disk space? :sweat_smile:


#5

Welcome and great setup!

What do you use for the backlight behind your iMac Pro and monitors?


#6

I’m curious why you don’t angle-in your left and right monitors?


#7

The night view is amazing!!


#8

That chair looks amazing — what is it? I assume you’d recommend it.
A 5-point harness wouldn’t look out of place, for some serious gaming :wink:


#9

I use a similar chair. I don‘t know his exact model, but i got mine from needforseat.


#10

The chair is from Noble Chairs. It is the Epic series


#11

I have the Phillips Hue system in my house and I use the Hue Lightstrip that is stuck to the back of the desk.


#12

It SNES Mini for some classic gaming in my down time.
You can never have to much storage !


#13

The space / desk does not really allow it. I am looking for a corner desk so can angle the 2 external monitors


#14

This looks really cool Jason but I wonder how ergonomic are the screens when they are lined up so that all three are in a straight line. I have used a multi screen setup but always feel the need to turn the outer ones inwards for more comfortable viewing.

I am concerned about the neatness of your desk. Where are the coasters, coffee mugs, spare cables, little dish of miscellaneous screws, a foil bag or two from your last hard drive purchase, nail clippers, and pocket detritus that belongs on every home desk?

Neither or my areas are nearly that impressive. I have a corner desk upstairs (where I am now) in the guest room) which is where I do most my email and stuff in the morning. It’s a MBP 2015 with a broken keyboard (eldest spilled hot cocoa on it) that other wise works perfectly, so it sits in clamshell mode behind a 27" display and I have it connected to a sounder that is also behind the screen.

Downstairs I have a 2012 iMac (getting upgraded as soon as Apple does a 2018 refresh) with a second 27" display. Behind those are a lot of disks (20TB or so). I have an off-site Synology with 36TB of space, so everything gets backed-up at least thrice.

This is the second time I’m seeing these wallpapers in a setup somewhere. Do you have a link to them? This is such a cool idea.


#17

What is the gear on left side in the last daytime picture? looks like DJ gear, but you seem to be home-based whereas most DJ’s are portable.


#18

It is my DJ setup - Pioneer DJM 900Nexus, 2 x Pioneer DJM 2000Nexus and a RMX - 1000
This is the industry standing in nightclub across the world. I use Pioneer Reckordbox Music Management software on my mac to manage my DJ tracks and set playlist. These then get exported to SD Cards for playing out.


#19

The iMac is my many screen and use the right for email and my task manager which is 2DO.

I then use the left screen for Twitter and Windows 10 running using Parallels Desktop.

Is that your office or heaven? :wink: Wow! Very nice!
