I’m in the process of building a new dedicated room and I’m in the design phase. My designer produced a concept where my gear / rack is in a separate room (basically a closet with a door). That room will have HVAC so I’m not worried about cooling and ventilation. The plan would be to run XLRs from the preamp in the room to the monoblocks which will be in the room near my two mains.
I’m curious to those who have dedicated spaces if you have your equipment in or outside of your listening room. I’ve seen a lot of the great pictures in the System Photos thread and almost all of them have the rack either between the two mains or off to the side. Is there a specific reason for this or was it done out of necessicity (lack of space, cable length cost savings, etc.)
