I've been extremely happy this this 10 space chasis. It replaced a Lindell 506 (which I'll be keeping for future modules) and so far has worked flawlessly. The build quality is great. I have it filled with 6 Classic API modules and 1 AML 1073 and all modules work perfectly. I've never seen another chassis that offers this much power, with this much I/O at this price. My only complaint is that I don't care for the gold/copper-ish color, but really, that's not important in the end. Do yourself a favor and seriously consider this over other 500 series racks.
So far, I love this 10 space rack. It fits great in my main rack, and really helps to keep things clean looking. They included screws for the 500 modules, which is very convenient and helps keep installations clean and consistent looking. One thing I would change if possible is that the power switch is on the back, which is a bit of a pain, since I have to reach around my main rack enclosure to turn it on, but whatever, this is still the best deal out there. The link switches work great too, saves me on patch cables. Not many racks in this price range feature this. So far I have only filled up three of the slots, but so far so good. Makes me want to fill this baby up with more modules! If you plan on growing your studio, this 10 space rack is a very cost effective way to power your 500 series modules. Even though it is cost effective, it is well built.
