JBL 4311B
Crown D150A (previously DC300A)
Technics SL1200 MK II
HHB "Burnit" CDR 830
Denon DN-720R

all racked (well, the 1200 sits on top and the speakers are where speakers go)


A lot of high-end home products (like the Technics ST-9030 tuner) were rackmount or had optional rack ears available, Of course, these could always sit freely on the shelves of an ordinary home audio cabinet if you had no rails to screw them to. When buying home gear I would always get the ears whenever possible, and it's no great shakes to create an equipment cabinet with rails, even wooden ones, instead of (or in addition to) shelves, and a nice wood-finished exterior for improved WAF.

..."Toy Factor" from well placed flashing lights and huge back lite VU meters has been known to sell PA and recording gear.

Huge backlit VU meters have sold me many tape decks.

In mixdowns I hop to and fro the NS10s, but I wouldn't really mix on them as the primary monitors - I just don't really think they're a very faithful reproduction.

My home setup is based around a Samson Servo 260 and a pair of JBL Control 1Gs - I prefer the fuller bottom end of the 1Gs. There are balanced inputs on the Servo, but of the equipment ever attached to it only my PC has balanced outputs.
