Moving the old system into a new cabinet

I got tired of that ugly 22U rack that housed almost half of my MU system and didn't want to risk my gear again by having two 22-space portable cabinets in an unstable vertical stack that can easily fall and kill my modular and/or my cat. So I had someone make me a 44-space slanted studio cabinet similar to those from Except the guy made it 24 spaces wide instead of 22 spaces, so I ended up with a 48-space studio cab and a little extra space for new modules.

Here is a picture of the cab:

Here it is after installing the power components:

After the modules were installed I had 11 spaces left. A new SSL V-Gates module was already included:

Here is the full system with the two portable cabinets on top. I decided to keep the ugly 22U rack beside the modular for effects and other stuff. The eurorack system will be on top of the rack.

Those holes ain't gonna fill themselves, so stay tuned.
