Looks (and I bet, sounds) amazing! Certainly more than I will attain in this life, minus a lottery jackpot or something.\n\n\n\n\nI have a genuine question. Why would you put the equipment rack in the front and spoil the visual and perhaps the audio of the front stage due to L-R imbalance and reflection point? Are all those LEDs and amp lights defeat-able or covered with black off when viewing a movie? On the audio side, I assume you have done ETC measurements to ensure the right speaker does not create strong reflections off the racks...\n\nIMHO, the Kimber cable spoils the clean look of the front. Perhaps you can run them behind the baseboard and only expose the one foot vertical drop from the floor to the wall jacks. That way you can show off in a casual cool manner ;) :).\n\nCall me a minimalist, but, with such beautiful floors and walls, the cables should be minimally visually invasive and the equipment rack should have not been there at all. For crying out loud, paint or replace those wall plates with something more color matched to the material on the panels.\n\nOn the topic of wire\/cable management, BMXTRIX "brought it",\n\nUnfortunately my room is L shaped and I didn't have the luxury of putting the equipment in its own space. The only separated room in the theater room would have worked but then I wouldn't have an office space. Plus, I like displaying the equipment and people love seeing it coming in the room.\n\nThe speakers are a few feet in front of the racks so they don't create any nasty reflections. Plus the right wall is much further from the right speaker than the left wall \/ left speaker. If anything, this helps to restore a lost balance from the symmetry issue. I also padded the left wall to further compensate. It's not perfect but you do get the headphone effect of perfect stereo separation when sitting in the middle of the front row.\n\nThe wiring in my racks actually looks a lot better than what i shown in the article pic. I forgot to take a new picture to update but will do so when I pull the rack out again during my next upgrade.\n\nThe wiring in the rack you show looks awesome! However, I can't commit to something that permanent since I am always swapping gear.\n\nMarantz is sending me a PM-11S3 Integrated amp to replace my S2 after they saw this article and I'm also updating the bedroom SR6004 to an SR6008. So as you see, my equipment racks are always in a state of flux. \n\nGood comments.
