    Yep, I have been in touch with Olson and they can certainly help - even remove the LED and fit wider brackets. At a price - a pair of 8 way blocks are nearly £200.

    Lynxpower do similar 19” blocks - aluminium chassis but 1.5mm rather than 2.5mm internal wiring.
    I would have to sort out the brackets and LED (is it easy to take that out of circuit) but they would be £50 the pair.

    I feel the latter would do considering the likely load tequirements (less than 500w per block).

    I will take a trip to the DIY store to see what bracketry is available.

    Cheers

    I've got a six way, feeding a six way, feeding a 4 way on the A.V system. No issues at all. It probably does compromise the power amp performance a little, but I've no safety concerns.

    I lived in a few old houses with big rooms and only 1 single plug socket. I had six boards daisy-chained in one place for several years with no issues.

    I wouldn't do it with a dedicated audio system unless there was no option.

    I daisy chain some Bennenstuhl 10 way sockets as long as there is not too much switched on at one time. There are only a few things taking priority and it allows me to switch off banks of five and leave other things connected

    Its not ideal but I have around 35 things fighting for plug space in this room. I found a quality block with a quality switch and Im happy with that.

    Got the two Powerlynx 7 way strips, drilled a couple of pieces of steel to extend the brackets (and sprayed them black) and bolted to the stand uprights using its spare M8 bolt holes. All a bit tidier and now I have three more spare sockets than before 😁

    I would like to disable the neon indicators but access is a bit tight and I dont really know how. In the meantime I sprayed the plastic covers that fit over them black so i dont see them.

    You should really try to remove the neon indicators: they are a noise source and covering them up won't change things.

    I have dedicated ring of 20 sockets for my audio system, yet the most I use would be 12, and that includes electrostatic speakers which need a mains supply and monoblock power amplifiers. How do you manage 35, is your TV/home theatre in the same room?
