It may not look like it but it is much more organized now , the idea was to get components on one side and the receiver on the other, that way the cables could lay flat going from side to side and not have to be tied in bundles. You are correct, a vertical rack definetly helps. At this point I can pull out the stand and not have cables disconnecting which is a plus. There is a wood spine with metal support going up the back and I will be putting a thin bar on it to tie some power cables to. I also have some of the convolute tubing at work I will try, though im not sure I will like the look.At this point it cant be seen from the front so that's a good thing.

I meant to take a pic before I pushed the unit back but I had someone there to help push it back so I took advantage. If or when I finish up I will take another pic. The Emo 5 channel weighs 82lbs alone , so the rack is getting damn heavy.

Just an FYI, most probly know this but when I was organizing my mess , I found a blower dryer to be a huge help to get the wires to behave.

I came across an box of multi-sized "binder thingies" in a "We're throwing this stuff out so have at it." pile at work. The kind where you needed a hole punch that made about 50 of those square holes and you if you didn't have a machine, you had to take your time to work the pages into them all.

I don't think anybody has the patience to use them anymore but they make wonderful wire binders if you have various sizes to play with like I did.

I agree.
My computer wires are bundled just to get them off the floor so i can vacuum under the desk but when it comes to a/v cables, there's too many things running in too many directions with different wire lengths. It takes hours to plan it all out and if all this is behind the system anyway, what's the visual point?

At most these days i coil up really long extra bits but that's about it.
