Also surprised it's a 2U rack system, but only has room for one hard drive since it only has 1 SCSI ID selector. With that much empty room, I would have built it with an empty drive bay for a second drive.
Hybrid Arts probably had the 2U rack format as standard for their devices, providing a homogeneous and elegant look. With this format the ADAP, RC-44, CD-ROM and others were included; They even had the rack housing for the Atari Mega ST.
My RC-44 unit does not have the ACSI-SCSI adapter ICD board, because it was optional and its previous owner would connect the chained device in another way or with the external ICD Link-2 adapter. I have that board on other devices, for example on a Protar ProFile hard disk; but as it is said in my country: "It is not good to undress a Saint to dress another."
I would like to imitate the rack layout of the previous photo, and my intention is to replace the SyQuest unit of my RC-44 with a Yamaha CD burner and a hard drive, both of which fit perfectly inside and I think the power supply can support them (indicates a maximum of 50W). So I could avoid that ugly PC tower that has those components and place them next to the effects processor, the amplifier and the C-Lab MK-X.
But first I need to paint in black the front of the Yamaha recorder.
