Auray ERS-22U Reviews

Pretty, strong and professional!

This is not just a review. This is also a tutorial/ instructions / workshop kind of thing to help you guys out when you get your unit and actually have FUN assembling it and start using it in no time. I’m a keyboard player, I have a little studio at home and I used to have my rack units on top of each other on a standard small plaster + glass table furniture for years and never though of actually getting one of these racks! Having my units on a regular table worked fine but adding this Auray rack stepped the whole thing to another level of functionality and beauty! Oh man, I’ll never go back! Why didn’t I think of getting these earlier??  I didn’t know this was going to look SO NICE! And it compliments my already high tech, impeccable  and dust free studio. That plaster table had to go! And welcome the Auray ERS-8U! Well, this Auray ERS-8U in this listing is a KIT, which also includes a Power Conditioner and a utility Drawer. If you’re buying just the rack itself, the power conditioner and drawer are not included.  All 3 items came separately boxed in a VERY sturdy box, especially the rack pieces and the drawer, featuring auxiliary box straps outside the box (the same stuff that comes wrapped outside the box when you buy a refrigerator).  Contents: Every single part of the rack... (plate, panel, screws), all isolated in premium  packaging materials , pretty much “FedEx - UPS damage proof”. This unit can be easily carried by one single person including my wife who is just 5.4’. The black finish and look is also pleasing and it looks very attractive and professional. Now, let’s talk about assembly: To be honest, assembling this unit is a no brainer but the instructions from the booklet is rather vague. (The PDF manual is available for download at BH site as well). But the picture itself shows clearly enough how it’s done, but actually looking at the actual 1st picture of the item at BH Auray ERS-8U listing page gave me a much better idea how not to make a mistake assembling. The ONLY tricky part is the 4 corner plates where the gear you have to mount in the rack is going to be.  Everything there comes already pre-screwed on the base and rack mount corners but you have to remove them all prior to putting together all parts. The setup took me less than 20 minutes to assemble, and this is my FIRST RACK I’ve touched. Too easy!! Before the rack arrived, I was afraid that the screws to mount my gear there would be a separate purchase, since it doesn’t say at the “what’s included” at the item’s page. But, YES! All needed screws ARE included, and they even provide a screwdriver, and a good one! It’s precise and doesn’t strip the crews. There are 2 screw bags: one is #5 screws, the other is #6.  The #6 screws are the ones that you’ll need to mount your gear. EVERYTHING ELSE, on that rack, to assemble it, will be #5 screws. All threads are easy to screw. Except the #6 threads. The threads on the rack are perfectly crafted, but the actual screw itself, not really so. Therefore, take it easy when screwing these in. I’m not sure why there were so many #5 screws included since all the screws I needed were already present on all the connecting parts. I still have that bag full. But the #6 screw, there were only 20, which lucky me, it was exactly the quantity needed to mount 1 amplifier (3U), the drawer (2U), 2  Alesis units being 1U each) , and the Power Conditioner 1U) totaling 5 units which filled that rack from top to bottom and I didn’t even need the space filling plate that came with the rack.  If you happen to be mounting a bunch of skinny 1 Unit space devices, or all 2 Unit spaces, you’ll need to order additional mounting screws, just so you know. If you happen to strip a screw, remember that there are 4 columns in this rack. Just like you rotate you car’s tires swiping the front ones to the back, you can partially disassemble the rack and bring the rear columns to the front which the threads are intact. But chances of striping the threads are minimum to none as long as you’re gentle and careful with your things. And TIP #2: Before screwing the screws, ALWAYS start a turn counter-clockwise so the threads align with the thread holes, THEN, you start screwing clockwise. DO NOT USE POWER TOOLS! You will break the screw plastic washers that protects your gear and cause irreversible damage to the threads. Even though I haven’t had a rack before, I have a lot of experience assembling gear and I also have that special  “touch” talent that I just seem that I just can’t “break” anything...Plus, I read manuals, you know?... I also attached illustrative photographic instructions in this review to help you guys out. See “customer images” by “Art Video”. Be sure to see it!! When I finished assembling and hooking up everything, I stepped back and saw how beautiful my components look in that Rack. I LOVE IT!!!! It’s SO functional and pretty! And I can roll it around anywhere too. The power conditioner: It has plenty of outlets , more than you need for the Auray ERS-8U Rack and I feel safer having something like this power conditioner on a higher level of electrical quality designed for these racks that will protect my gear against surges and spikes instead of connecting straight to the wall outlet or using cheap “power protection” devices from a local hardware store. The drawer: took me 15 seconds to install that in the rack. TIP: Always place the rack on the floor, with the part that screws your components facing you, UP. Then start loading whatever components vertically one by one, using two hands, grabbing by their “ears” in “drop  down mode”. Use gravity in your favor instead of having to hold your components from the bottom while you screw them in... When you’re done, put the rack back on its wheels and enjoy. This whole process, you don’t need anyone to help. 1 person is all that it takes especially if you follow these instructions. The Auray ERS-8U rack exceeded my expectations and with this kit option, it’s even more awesome! VERY HAPPY! [I received these items in exchange for my honest review]
