OCD?

That's a really neat wiring scheme, though, something I'd be most proud of.

Looks like the rear of an equipment rack, Chip'. Processing top and centre, with amps flanking.

Looks like a house music distribution system for a big house or maybe a club. There goes a week in wire management.

As a former A/V installer (briefly), I can attest that this is the unicorn of home setups. Not once have I arrived at or left a customers home looking anywhere near as neat as that install is. It's art really. Must have been done by the homeowner... that, or they weren't cheap and paid the install guy to stay and do the job right :lol:

I work in corporate world of computer systems and rarely have I seen such craftsmanship racked & stacked.

Unlike the wire closet from hell which would represent a young lads access to dads nasty mags :lol: :lol:

Alot of data centers look like this, also movie theaters and post houses have brilliant cabling. I sort of maintain an older set of edit suites and this makes me drool, my racks suck (but its also a favor and the gear will be in the trash by 2018 when nobody has a problem editing 4k on a macbook pro)

That looks super nice but is there a problem with running so many cables next to each other in a bundle? I try to keep cables that are close at 90 degrees. A good excuse for my rats nest of cables...

I am going to have to disassemble my system this weekend so that I can move the rack out of the way of a new outlet install. That should give me a good opportunity to redo the cabling. I am not looking forward to it. :?

I think you only need to keep power and signal cables at a 90 degree angle to each other. Signal cables should be able to run parallel to each other without any fear of interference.
