So, plan B went into effect.
Bob.......Looks like the one tool you forget was a tape measure.

Plan B looks good to me.

This is not my system, just a photo I located, but I have always been impressed with the way McIntosh gear looks in cabinets. I like the 501 in the cabinet at the bottom. Those 352's look good, too.

I like the cabinets. Had one with my 6200 integrated back in the mid 1980's. Does make a retro looking piece of gear look even more retro though. They would be out of place for someone with a more contemporary looking setup, like yours Jim.
