    Great Chasis

    Posted by scott neilson on Sep 29th 2014

    You know there are a lot of 500 series Chassis Options out there but I find more and more as I speak with owners of other units that they run into power issues and are not able to run certain modules. That being said I have never had that issue nor do I know of any other 6b owner who has had that issue. I say stick to the original as they set the standard.

    Great solution for a modular approach

    Posted by Serge on Dec 17th 2013

    The 500 series lunch box lends itself to so many options for a customized studio. Its built tough for transporatabilty and has a super quiet power supply. I will have a great time filling this bad boy up and constantly rearrangeing the channels for tailored sessions.
