  1. This gets me excited! Currently my .com sits inside of a hollowed out briefcase. Which is cool, but leaves no room for expansion, which this new system encourages. The only issue I see is power, when you have a system of so many units, the power supplies turn into a mess. Unless they can be daisy chained, which I doubt looking at the power supply specs. Perhaps a new power solution for larger systems? I guess I’ll just have to get one!

  2. Dotcom doesn’t currently offer rotating connectors, but I’m sure you could DIY something foldable.

  3. And ordered mine, only $240 for the case, power supply, and shipping. I dont feel like adding the wooden sides yet, as I can make my own. But after a 2nd cabinet I’ll buy the two different wood sides, as I already have my configuration in mind.
