Rack panel
#1
Does anyone know where I can get a panel that would have 64 female audio jacks on it and bare conectors on back I would like to use it for an AP audio unit and use cat5 wire from the AP to the back of a rack panel and use RCAs to the sources and zones.

The Leviton QuickPort panels/inserts should work nicely for you. You can use the QuickPort patch panel (they only come 24 or 32, so you could use 2 32's) or a high density 72 and the RCA/110 inserts (PCM Orange linked, but they come in Red/White/Yellow). The 110 connection is better than bare connector in that you do not have to solder. If you do not want the rack panels, you can also put clusters of 6 in regular gang boxes, etc. You have alot of flexibilty with this stuff. This site was used as easy reference but there are many other sources much less expensive.

I have a quickport patch panel I use in my av rack, you can find pictures of it in the link in my sig. It is the only pre-made solution I know of and is very flexible. Just promise me if you get one, you won't curse me when the inserts keep popping out as you connect stuff, which I guarantee you will happen.

I guess another solution would be to get a regular rack panel blank and drill it out, since all you need is audio connectors, that should also work.

Leviton sells QuickPort panels for 48 and 72 (1U and 2U respectively). That's a very expensive way to go though, least in my opinion. I'm sure the radio and television industry has some better solution for this type of application.
