Rack 500 Dual

High quality Level


Concerning quality, our 500 series products are as accurate as top class 19” audio equipment. The only catch: The rack they are operated in has to be at the same quality level. Otherwise the user can not benefit the superb performance. Rack 500 Dual provides what we think is the best technical environment for 500 series units. It holds up to two single space modules or one double space module.

By its compact and lightweight design it can be easily placed in the “sweet spot” when being operated.
