POLL: How long til new gear gets racked?

When a new piece arrives, how long until it's in the rack? Once it's been tested, etc.

Usually right after it is tested to see if it was damaged in shipping or has issues, then a test to see if I like what I bought. After that, in the rack it goes.

It get's rack only after I know I am going to keep it... which is anywhere from 2 minutes to 2 weeks.

On a side note...I bought the rack ears for the Great River ME1NV but I really like having it mobile and close. I have plenty of room on my Omnirax desk for it. Still haven't cracked open the rack ears and It doesn't look like I will.

It goes in the rack right away and stays there. Once in a blue moon, I'll re-arrainge my rack gear, but this may only happen 1-5 years.....I usually have a empty rack space waiting for the selected new gear... so I know right where it's going and have most of the wiring inplace, before I get the unit, so it's just a matter of plugging in and powering up.

I have a total of 27 rack unit's of various sizes in 5 seperate racks, If I didn't keep everything organized, I'd have one hell of a mess on my hands, and equipment would get damaged. Only my studio power amps and cassette recorder are not in actual racks, but have dedicated shelf spaces, due to space restrictions.
