Empty 2U rack chassis
« on: Time Format »

I'm currently brainstorming a few ideas, one of which requires an empty, blank, ready-to-populate 2U rack chassis.  I've seen a few here and there but they are CRAZY expensive.  :o 

Anyone know of a place that has them and not so darn expensive?

Hey Kim, unfortunately not in your neck of the woods LoL.  MikeB has found a good rack site here, not sure if they are available in the US ? The SKB roto racks look really good (Dante has a couple IIRC), Dante says the shallow (which I didn't think were deep enough for ADA preamps) work (you may have to use right angled jacks ?)  Anyway, not sure what they cost in the US.

Kim,

I have a couple of them, one of which I really don't need. You want it? I'll send it to you if you do

I just re-read that and see that I misunderstood. I have a spare 2u rack case. My bad

Not sure what a rack "chassis" is...

Shallow 12" works fine.

Those links are for rack cases.  A "chassis" would be for example if you had an MP-1 with nothing in it: no knobs, no holes, no buttons, nothing.  Just a blank face, sides, back panel, and top/bottom lids.  Ready to be turned into whatever it is you wanna build out of it and then mount into a rack case.   :)

No, not a fan of Ebay.   :dunno:

But.....another search turned this up:

Now that's more like it.  A reasonable price.   :thumb-up:
