Or a 200-series thread, just depends on your needs. I couldn't find any seriously dedicated lunchbox / 500 series related thread, so I thought I'd just make one. Everyone has a lunchbox, it would be nice if you could review the pieces you've got running in it. And for those who don't have one could ask questions. To start of, I'll start with my question. For now, I want to buy a lunchbox + 2 preamps. Undoubtedly I want to get 2 API 512's first. However, there are a few different brands of lunchboxes out there, varying a LOT in price. - How much difference is there in quality (build, audio and power output)? For instance, Lindell is about 30% cheaper than the one from API. And Radial is a again more expensive than the API. Over the upcoming 2 years I want to add a new piece every few months. I'm planning on eventually having more than 6 in there. Is it wise to buy a 10 slot rack, or just get a 2nd 6 slot box to continue? Unfortunatelly I don't have a retailer near by which has these in stock so I can test or can give my any usefull information/feedback. If you have a lunchbox it would be nice if you could list the gear you have and maybe a short (or lengthy) review about it.
