    Two Genz-Benz FCS-410T.. very impressed with sound.. reasonably light to boot!

    Just need to try and fill the 6U rack.. going to ditch the line6 floor pod and replace it with a 1u preamp along with a 1u power conditoner and maybe a little tray for cables? :)

    My thoughts if I may:

    Tray/drawers are just a burden in a rack. I have two 2U drawers that cam out of the rack faster than they went in!

    If you allow for a 2U pre you'll have many more choices.

    Power "conditioners" are a waste of space unless you need one for mains distribution. They offer no more "protection" than a simple filtering power bar.

    I have found that anything over a 4U case as awkward to carry with one hand. I standardized on 4U cases.
  3. 6U case was free so I can't complain... The main reason I'm going for the power distributor is to light up whatever is underneath it.. and it also means I only need one mains plug for everything inside!

    I haven't really seen any 2U preamps that I can afford though! I don't mind having blank spaces in the rack.. might even get a rack tuner if I can find a nice one

    If I had the dough I'd make an offer on the Pod, I have one already and finally figured out how to find the magic in them. I bet that stack sounds as sweet as it looks!

    this is the reason I do use them. :) I can't imagine how big one would have to be to handle multi 13A plugs! :D

    Sell the 6U then buy a 3 or a 4. :)

    Very nice JamesXP!
    I love the GB Focus cabs. Sound great, lightweight, good build quality, excellent value, IMO.
