0.3" or 8mm difference.

Unfortunately, you've provided numbers for "Desk" mounted height.  IE; laying on a table.  Not rack mounted height, with how 'high' it sits above the rack rails.

I thought about that, I saw the line drawings at one point, but I believe A&H took them down. I still think I provided useful info because I provided a worse case scenario. The primary chassis of the SQ board is still the QU series, they just filled in the bottom 'L' shape with XCVI core...

Granted, that doesn't account for the new led strip at the top. (probably the .3")

Here's the image, right from A&H, showing how high it sits above the rack-rail height.

Hi Rob,   That was my first thought as well.   The moving rails are rivetted in, so we'd drill them out and plug them.
I just found this, which might fit the bill -- http://www.odysseygear.com/odyssey-products/arstc.html

Although certainly curious if there's other suggestions / solutions.

I use the same Audiopile rack and a quick test would be to tilt the flat board all the way up and see if the cover goes on, then measure the height to check for fit . You can also drop the tilt rails down a few U. This will require some work, but that will be your choice.

Hi Bob, thanks for the suggestion.  Indeed, drilling out the rivets on the tilt rails and moving them down does appear like an option... although I'd like to avoid hacking up the case.  Seems as though I may be able to get away with putting a 4-post rack tray in the top mounting slot of the vertical rack; then having the SQ-5 simply free-stand on that.  (Perhaps secure it with velcro on the underside)

Do we think this chassis will be large enough that it will want to be in a rolling case with a doghouse and slot underneath for TalkBack mic and snacks or is this going to fit more in a pull over lid case? Doesn't look quite as tall as a QL1 which is what I'm hoping this can kinda compete with.

Looks like the QL1 is 272mm high, the SQ-5 198mm

Would it be possible to obtain or build a deeper top lid? That way you wouldn't need to modify the rails at all and the mixer would still be secure.

Iím starting to think about the successor to my trusty Roland M480. I was looking at D-Live but it was a big stretch financially. This could be the answer.
Only thing Iím not particularly keen on is the chromatic metering. Appears to be one LED that changes colour as the level changes. I understand itís built to a price point, but as someone mixing theatre decent metering is a big deal when hunting for a faulty radio mic. Iíd really prefer at least a 5 step led meter. At this price point though I guess I canít complain too much.

Iíll be really interested to see the capabilities of the scene recalls. Particularly the ability to set the recall scope and also to see if DCA assignment, layer layout and DCA labelling can change on a cue by cue basis. Thatíd make for a fantastic console for regional theatre work.
