I am really curious to see how the stock fans turn on and off on the re27, I doubt its temperature controlled and I wouldnt want them running all the time. Those shelves are going to be dangerous, spend more on shelves than the rack! Thanks!

You can get just the temperature module if your fans are 12vdc.

The rack for my little home theater.

I have an Onkyo PR-SC5508 on top of the rack too, but not included in the first picture.





Would love to get rid of the Behringer amps (driving all my surround channels) and get Crown amps for them to complete the collection.

With all of those amps, is your theater really little? Do you have any pics and what all do you have?

Bit off topic, but I'm just looking to getting crowns for my HT speakers. What model were you considering?

Here is my rack and it's spot in the theatre. Still under construction. This is the Middle Atlantic SRSR -19

Do you have access to that anywhere other than the front? If not, wiring it and keeping it cool will likely be a challenge... Particularly the wiring part.

That rack slides out and rotates. And one could use powered venting on the rack face (at the expense of storage space).

The SR in the name means it slides and rotates plus I have access from the rear under the stairs. I wanted to close it as much as possible for sound considerations. When done it will be painted black with black trim.

How do you play the 1:1 bluray rips. Are the formats .iso
post #2052 of 2104
I use media browser and mpc-hc for playback. I use the .mkv container unless its 3d, then I usually use .iso because its mountable

I'm sure I'm not alone is admitting I, too, once had plans like that. Yeah, we might WANT to do that, but I'd venture most of the time that finalizing never happens. At least not when the gear isn't all purchased and installed all at the same time. Life and creeping-featuritis have a way of preventing that from ever happening. There's always one more piece of gear, or new version of something, or an option left open for expansion...

That said, when I build out the theater later this year I plan on attempting to make it look pretty and 'finalized'. But I would not make any bets on that.


as a professional in the AV field I've learned that keep it neat as you go along because that "finalizing" never happens.  I once got stuck with a job that someone else abandoned and the budget was gone.  Instead of pulling all the ugly spaghetti and starting from scratch I "finished" ie, got er done.  it was ugly.  I'm ashamed to have been a part of that even though it works (and it rock solid, strangely enough).  I did learn my lesson though.  "finalizing" never comes.  Make it neat as you go or live with the ugly mess you created.   I'd much rather fall behind on a work of art than finish a mess early.

Unfortunately yes... It's 21x11 so I would still define it as small. I probably could have settled for less amps, but now I have the ability to use my system in any room size in the future smile.gif
post #2055 of 2104
made this a few years back. worked great!!


post #2056 of 2104
what does everyone use for in the open rack? I'm planning on having all my equipment in the back right of my room.

I got my rack and everything installed, the stock fans in the re27 were Maxair 12038B1HC x 2. They are 120MMx38MM 120ac fans, just for future reference if anyone is searching. They are super friggin loud stock though, I rewired them to run in series and they are dead silent now. Only problem is there is no temp sensor to turn them on or off. I guess I could replace them with 12v fans and get a controller, but that seems like a little bit of a waste. Any advice otherwise? I actually looked to see if my amp had an old school ac in on it so I could run them through that but it doesnt haha. If I do convert to 12v, any recommendations on a 120x38 fan to use?
post #2058 of 2104
There is a way around it and that is to use a relay with the temp control module but that would be not the best way. Go to coolerguys.com and they have specs for all of their fans. The fans that come with the kit are medium speed and have moderate sound but you can get the low speed ones that are almost dead silent.

Anyone have an issue with a PS4 RSH shelf faceplate? We put together our first RSH shelf last night, and the bottom of the hole is 2-3mm too high for the PS4 to clear, even with the provided foam/rubber feet added. I am certain the faceplate is attached to the sides correctly, and I put the shelf within the sides elbows. Anyone else experience this?

I don't own a ps4 (and hence not the ps4 faceplate), but I believe on my Wii one, they included rubber feet to raise it up since the hole could not be lower than they put it. The feet raise it up high enough to fit in the hole correctly. Make sure you didn't get any of these feet. If course, their measurements could have been off (weird since they normally require a physical specimen to create the template off of)

The sticky foam/rubber feet are applied. I ordered through customavrack.com, so I did not send in my PS4 for measurements... I will probably just stick some rubber washers under the provided foam/rubber feet to fix my issue, but I am left wondering if it is one time quality control issure or if I should give them feedback. I tried to sign up for an account to deal with them directly(I ordered through customavrack.com), but apparently I was signing up for a vendor account. I called the website I got it from and they thought of the same solution as I did, I just want awareness if this is a "working as designed" issue.

I meant the first time they make a template they use a physical machine to take measurements (They will use user taken measurements, but i don't believe the MA will keep those on file). So someone else sent one in (or Sony Sent them one, or someone who works there has one). So the template should have matched. You might be able to email MA directly and ask them (middleatlantic.com). Of course as you said, there is a simple fix, but if there is an issue with the template, at least they would know so they could potentially mark the template for adjustments.
post #2063 of 2104
Thanks. It does not appear they have measurements for either "Sony Playstation 4" or "Sony PS4" when I check their tool, so I sent them an email documenting my experience. I can't believe I am the first one getting this faceplate, this has been out since November...

Here are pictures of my homemade maple rack I built with some stolen ideas from this thread, Thanks guys! It contains a cable box, ultimate remote logitech, Oppo 103D, Mac TV. 2 power surge protectors from Monster, Onkyo 818, Tray for Mac Book on blum self closing sliders, Emotiva XPA5 Gen2, XPA2 Gen2 and my wifes Marrantz in the bottom to show my age. I will try and get some shots of the back later.

@Newshoundaussie, I like the pull out shelf for the laptop there. I wish I had a way to do something similar for my printer (Printer/Scanner/Copier). I currently have it facing into the closet because there is no way to make the faceplate and have it pull out for scanning stuff. I'm pretty much locked into the MA faceplates, so it being in the closet will just have to suffice. I really just wanted to say...... great job! It looks awesome smile.gif

Thanks for the comments. Here are pictures of the back. Not a Professional setup, but as clean as I could make it . It is in a small enclosed room.

@Newshoundaussie, that is still really nice from the back. Nice cable management. I like the use of the electrical boxes for small patch plates.
post #2068 of 2104
Built this last weekend for about $100. Still need to fill nail holes and apply paint, pretty happy how it turned out though.



post #2069 of 2104

Looks great get it filled and up and running!
