The Dream System Comes Together

Not to go all Eeyore or nothin' but -- can it breathe properly? The mfgr must (?) have recommendations about clearance around (&, perhaps particularly, above) their components.
If not specified in the docs, it might be worth asking :-I
That's my question as well..I tend to fit gear in confined spaces, too...and am always worried about ventilation. It all looks great together, though..and its pretty impressive that 2 monoblocks can fit on one shelf.

It sure looks nice! I think my wife would appreciate that all the power buttons are on the front. Turning my system on involves reaching, bending, twisting, and standing on one foot.

It keeps me limber.
Thats the other cool part. It never gets turned off.

This stuff runs dead cold. No heat issues at all. I'm sure I could heat it up if I ran it hard, but that isn't an issue in my small room.

The power buttons are superfluous? I'd say the blue lights and logos are a bit much, too...

Just think how much cleaner those faceplates would look without the power buttons and lights and logos... 'specially on the amps! Might want to suggest this to your friends at Exposure, tell 'em "you're welcome" from Nate.

Well, not leaving your equipment on 24-7-365 is better for the environment.

Agreed, but I do leave one piece on all the time - my amp, which has all the sonic warmth of an Eb clarinet (or icepick, you choose) when it's "cold" and as it "runs cool" in its usual operation, it takes forever for the inner core to "warm up" and become more musical. I've found that if I just leave it on, its innards are always sufficiently ready to deliver the goods, so by the time the other components (most of which are tubed) get themselves woke up, which is much faster, we're not waiting around for days for the amp to get the memo. And it's barely using any electricity when sitting on, so the "waste" is very minimal.

Eh?
