For a brief time around 2000 or so, I had a mult-preamp, multi-power amp rack. As the idiot I was, I thought that having all that gear meant I should take it all out to a gig, so I had this huge SKB 12 space shock mount refrigerator on a skateboard out there with me to gigs. Felt ridiculous, which it was. I eventually downsized.
I wish the 1/2 rack would've caught on. I love rack gear still to this day, just wish it was smaller. All of these awesome 20 watt amps coming out show they can build the technology into tighter spaces, heck look at what Synergy is doing right now. I'd like to see that trend continue for sure!
Which reminds me, Emperoff, have you looked into Synergy?
