Thanks guys!

How do I motivate myself to leave? I don't. I make everyone else come here instead!

Kal,

What can I say... Simply stunning in form and function, absolutely beautiful. You have given all of us something to work toward.

I also wanted to thank you for your work on the GREYSCALE & COLOUR CALIBRATION FOR DUMMIES article. I actually ordered the Eye One color meter on Monday, because your guide gave me confidence that I would actually be able to pull the calibration process off. This type of contribution is exactly the type of thing that moves our hobby forward.

Thank you for your help and inspiration!

I get that question all the time. If you look at the rack:



The only items that don't have breathing room are the preamp and 2 amps. The preamp on the bottom is completely sealed (no vents) and the amps all have heat sinks around the outside.

The back of this rack is completely open so all 3 sides of all equipment is completely exposed. The smaller amp on the bottom is actually 1/2 as deep as the upper amp so the top amp is even open on the bottom somewhat. This gives me considerably better cooling than if I had these items in some shelf even if the shelf was open on the top. In most cases the cooling is as good or even better than having the items sitting out on a table-top.

The other items have a lot of breathing room (especially the HDPVR and PS3 which tend to run hot). Both of these devices have variable speed cooling fans and they never spin any faster than the absolute lowest speed.

Very clean and nice rack setup. Everything looks seamless and very neat.
