The best 500 series rack for 2 modules, period.

I bought this rack from Sweetwater last year and finally put some modules in it, and wow! This is such a step up from my previous 500 series racks, I won't name names but I demand low noise and magnetic and radio frequency shielding in a small footprint for my limited rack space and this is the perfect choice on all accounts! I can't believe you get such a difference for such a minor increase in price over my last 500 chassis. Also the DI input on the front is so cool, I have it set up to eq first on my instrument tracks and then be amplified so I am able to cut the junk before it becomes a hassle, why didn't I do this sooner, I could have saved myself a lot of precious time. This is a five star offering from ELI!!!!!*****

The one for two

I tried another 500-series horizontal rack but had trouble fitting modules into it (apparently the VPR Alliance is more like the Wild West than I had known). No problems with the EL500. The onboard linking is a nice feature, as is the ability to mount the modules flush with the face of the unit because of insets for the module faceplates. I took off half a star because Empirical aesthetics don't appeal to me, though even that is not much of an issue with this unit.

This box does not allow every 500 series module. Specifically my API 512c are too wide! Double check and make sure your modules will fit with this product.
