"Poorly designed accessory for a very good product."
A shame, really. The Golden Age Pre73 is a terrific preamp. I have two of them, and I use them every time I record. I was hoping to incorporate them into my portable recording rig, but after a lot of struggle and repairing one of the pres that got twisted out of shape, I now have a $40 useless chunk of metal.
It is a rack kit for two Pre73s.
Ease of Use
It's simple enough to screw together, except my kit was missing 4 screws.
This thing is a failure. Its a shame because the pre73 is such a tremendous bargain. Unfortunately, when I racked my two pres, this kit managed to twist one of them and break the power switch. No fun fixing that. Also, when the pres were racked up, the entire assembly was a fraction of an inch taller than 1U rack space. Sad, really.
It could work, depending on your rack set up. But for $40, it's not worth it.
No instructions included.
The Wow Factor
Not that cosmetics matter, but the paint job on this was scuffed and scratched.
