1U-8 - Single Rack Space Chassis 8" Deep


In Stock
Product Code:


Aluminum rack-mount chassis 1U tall (1.75", 44mm) and 8" deep (203mm). Textured black paint, except on the interchangeable front and rear panels which are smooth white and smooth black.

This chassis is ideal for a single or multiple preamp kit(s) plus power supply. For instance, our PSU-PRE preamp power supply mounts horizontally, with the PRE board(s) mounted vertically using right-angle brackets. Tubes are necessarily horizontal. Ventilation is good. Use with any of these London Power kits: F-PRE, D-PRE, LP-PRE, M-PRE, S-PRE or Z-PRE, and/or with BFX and LINE.

Ideal for fully featured stand-alone effects loops using our BFX kit or multiple BFXs powered by PSU-PRE.

Our 20W power amp kit (PA84) and matching supply (PSU-20L) will fit in this chassis as a stand-alone single-channel power amp. There is room to add any of the London Power preamp kits, noting that the PSU-20L can support eight 12A_7 tubes in addition to the PA84 tube complement.

If you intend to add a preamp, please use the 1U-13.

If you intend to use octal-based preamp or power tubes, please see the 2U or taller chassis.

The image above shows the chassis with rack ears attached and using the white face on the front. Here is the unit with rack ears removed and with the black face forward:
