I didn't picture them being so STIFF and ORANGE!

Boy, you have a lot of cool looking tube gear in there that must have required some custom mounting.

What all is IN there?

Ted, I'm using the Equitech 20 amp unit and also loving it, especially since I customized it with an improved internal wiring scheme. I did notice a very nice improvement in the entire system by just replacing the main power cord to the wall with the chris venhaus formula 2 (the link provided by etteguau above). Even my guitar amps sound better. You'll need a hubbel 20 amp iec plug and for the AC plug just use the Pass & Seymour 5266-X AC plug if you want to save some $$.

Here for the gear

wow zepdude, thanks for the photo well, just by looking at the page i didn't know it was going to be _that_ way. I just wanted to make some cables but more in the like of what you suggested: good wire, good connectors... it's a little bit bulky to have all that tubes around. I still have to find where to get a good deal on Belden here in Spain, i'll look for that 19364.

Any guess for audio wire for balanced and unbalanced applications?Thanks.
