(as a suggestion, it'd be handy if you'd quote previous emails in your reply so we know what emails that you've seen or haven't seen - you've got multiple people feeding you information and we don't want to start duplicating effort) That said... Like I mentioned, you may want to look at options that don't lock you into Doepfer module spacing and power supplies. Laurie just mentioned his (Elby Designs), I'd brought up Blacet, looks like Bugbrand has something coming out... My physical racks themselves are custom pieces done by Nice-Racks. For the $530 you're looking at spending, there are a LOT of options. Each of my 21-space rack cost WELL less than 1/2 of that Doepfer box. Add to that a couple of Elby's or Blacet's chassis's, and then use PowerOne power supplies (easily found at online surplus shops) and you'll be WELL ahead of the Doepfer price point. So yes, there are other options. ref: http://www.bugbrand.co.uk/pages/modular.htm http://nice-racks.com/ Mark ----- Danjel van Tijn (12:21 PM 1/5/2009) wrote: >I think the ideal size and form factor (taking into account the modest >number of modules I will be able to afford over the coming year) is >something like the >Doepfer a-100g6 with psu2 >http://www.analoguehaven.com/doepfer/a100g6/ > >Since it is rackmountable I can get a larger rack unit to stack these in.
