I have a question for you folks. When I owned an 8058 I found it necessary as many do, to have the frame reinforced. I bought an 8 space rack for 80 series modules a few years ago but had to return it (and sell the modules at a huge loss) because the frame wasn't designed to be used in a modern "sterling modular" style console enclosure. Moreover, the frame wasn't strong enough and flexed when buttons were engaged.... So the edge connectors lost contact just a touch ---- Your rack looks pretty substantial, but have you tested it at a angle "on it's back"??

Sorry for the delay in replying, but this has been sunch an intense week... Interest in our products has really surpased all our best expectations by far.
We are updating our website. Our adress is already there.

We will be implementing special phone numbers so you guys from the States and some european countries may call for cheap.

We are a spanish based company, registered in the EU. We manufacture all our products in house the old fashioned way, as you can see in the pictures.

Many thanks to you all for such a hot welcome!!!!

Thats a good question Gravity! These modules are quite deep, and angled rack systems don´t like deep gear...
In fact, in some Sterling "face up" racking systems you are forced to install your deepest units in the top, leaving the bottom for the less deepest ones...

I´m sad to hear you had to return your frame and sell the modules. A properly designed frame would have been rough enough to hold 8 of them. Your Neve 8058 may have been made out of 12 channel buckets,which is 50% more weight...
Thanks!!

All true, it sounds like you've put your 8 Chan Rack through that "30 degree angle test" --- It would be great to have that confirmation.

Yes, true of my old 8058, but again, installing custom made steel reinforcement bars took care of that.

My concern lies with the compatibility of Neve 10xx series racks and the VERY popular new workflow ie: mounting in Sterling Mod style desk. Wasn't an issue of clearance below, it was an issue of frame design/strength. I fear none of the current rack makers are taking this into consideration. Moreover, I'd hate to see others go through what I went through with my 8 Chan rack... The alternative would be to market these racks as "For vertical racking only"
