fun/interesting/useful 1/2 rack units
« on: May 20, 2011, 04:07:47 pm »

Anyone know of any good 1/2 rack units, or any racks that would allow stacking 2x 500 modules top on top?

I have an EQ killer that's about 2U high : 1/2 rack width to use as a side-chain. I'd like to stick something else besides it to rack it all up. I could just make a bridge with some meters, but would rather something more useable.


Are there any 1/2 rack hardware M/S matrixes?

Maybe something like Safesound Stereo Toolbox? Anyone know of a rack for a double wide 500 on one side, and blank on the other? (sounds custom). ..


Doubt there'll be anything off the shelf .. got any leads on good 1/2 rack project boxes I could craft something .. umm, well 'crafty' into ;-)

   Thanks!

Wow, I'm just thinking the same exact thing here. I have a Weiss DAC2 shelved on a 2U shelf, 1/2 width.

I'm about to build a M/S matrix, and I was going to put it in a 1HE box, but you just made me re-think it. Thanks for that! I'm building this one: http://www.ka-electronics.com/KAelectronics/MS_Matrix/MS_Matrix.htm

Paul Gold has one, I think, and I' ve heard several people saying it's pretty much transparent. Simple build, and any tech would be able to build you one if you don't want to..

mmhh interesting topics,
actually i was interested in some guys building some modular housing for german danner modules like neumman or ntp ones ...
here's a link to a page in japanese,
very clever metalwork : http://german-modules.de-blog.jp/extreme_sus_rack_by_wmj_2009.pdf

they can be used as half rack units as you can see

Pretty cool .. this is all exactly the type of info I was looking for. Thanks guys!

$700 + shipping from japan for a 1/2 rack to mount an OEV or NTP . . . I wonder what a custom metalshop or good tech would charge to just rack one up on a bridge plate ..

I recently picked up the Avenson Mid-Side, and I'm very pleased with it.
