Not interested in a passive/active debate, thanks! You can take that to this thread. For the 3 in/2 out passive linestage, does anyone know if it is possible to remove the faceplate and stack the units? I liked the Placette 1 in/1 out "volume control" version when a friend brought his over to show me, but I need at least two ins and outs. Lucky for me, the passive linestage is equipped for that. Unlucky for me, I don't really have the space for something 19" wide without putting other heavy equipment like my tube amp on top of it. Then I found an auction that shows it with the faceplate removed and the three units stacked: However, I can't find any other shots or mentions of the linestage set up like that, and, suspiciously, the photos on the auction don't show any connections between the units. Can anyone confirm whether that's a possible setup with this piece of equipment?
