Well I had a $400 JVC boombox for several years but I don't think that counts as "HT"

Well, if we're doing HT, I've pretty much got my original system, except with M80s instead of M50s.

13" jc pennys tv on a rolling cart at the foot of the bed.
pioneer ld 1000 laserdisc player (still have it, but use a more modern panasonic unit) Well okay, I don't use the panasonic either)
JVC portable with 6.5" 2-ways and 2.5 wpc. Had a decent tape deck and full compliment of ext jacks. By this time I was using it for the tape deck.
Panasonic all-in-one stereo with marginal tape deck, passable tt, and unknown power- maybe 10-15 wpc? Blew a tweeter with it once. This was a hand me down from my sister, she still has it.
4.0 speaker setup, the 6.5? 2-ways from the panasonic set and a pair of 10" ported 2-ways that I used till the drivers rotted away in the late 90's. Front left was on the left sidewall firing directly to the center or the room, the other 3 were in their respective corners. Hey- it was loud.
The gear was perched in some fashion atop a "peaches" crate containing my lp's and the (very) few ld titles I had.
This would have been 1984. Just yesterday ;\)

I was genuinly proud of my system- especially the laserdisc, I had wanted that for several years before I got it.

27" Sony Trinitron CRT

TC Audio bookshelves and a cheapo Sony powered sub with no discernible output

I don't remember what receiver I had, but it was a Sony

Players changed so often, and I have no idea what I started with. I started watching DVDs on a computer, not too long after they came out. I think The Long Kiss Goodnight was the first DVD I got. Many iterations of my system had my computer desk right next to my television, which made it easy to play media from the computer on the television.

I wish I had pictures of the system. It would be pretty funny to look at now.
