Tube-Tech does have a modular system coming out (if it's not available already) but it's not 500-series compatible...the modules are a bit larger and the rackmountable frame is eight modules wide.

Why is everybody making their own? I mean I'm sure a lot of people would be able to jump on a buss 100x easier if they already have a rack for a module. But instead of having to buy a 1u item, instead we have to buy a whole rack now. Blah.

I don't know a lot about electronics design. But I can imagine it to be quite difficult for tubetech to build in 500 series format. I mean, the heat of the tubes, the power supply etc. Or am I totally wrong here?

Maybe not. LaChapell has a tube preamp shipping now for the 500 format called the 583s. It's double wide and draws 200mA. So TubeTech could do it theoretically [but like someone stated the TT modular system is not for 500 series].
