Seems like a lot of what have been traditionally rack-mounted gear has now gradually transitioned on to the pedal board, and amp heads have now become smaller due to class D. Cabinets are getting lighter too. I more than enjoy seeing our equipment get lighter and smaller, but I still enjoy the aesthetics and the modularity of a rack-mounted system. Can there be a compromise? Maybe a 1/2U rack-mounted system? Many things like power conditioners, compressors, tuners, amp heads, pre-amps, power amps, etc...can probably be down-sided to 1/2U with our current state of technology, or perhaps converted into some sort of 500 series module that we could integrate into a 500 series/power amp hybrid system? Maybe this is all a pipe dream, but I love the idea of having a rig with the flexibility of a rack-mounted system, but shrunk to the size and portability of a lunchbox. I hope I am not the only one here that dreams of this sort of thing.
