    Question audio rack suggestions

    Hello everyone, I'm looking for 12 unit racks for my 2 EQs, transistor amp (would sit on a shelf inside the rack) and patch panel. Any suggestions? Should I get a Samson Srk12 rack? Do you have any recommendations? (must have wheels and be no taller than 70cm or 27.55 inches) Thanks!

    We’re (hopefully) moving next month, and I’m wondering whether to revisit, and how to position, my current living room hi-fi / home cinema speaker setup, since the new room is much bigger. Ideally I’d not buy (any/much!) more kit, but trying to keep an open mind. Suggestions on speaker...
