Is PL 1U a real option in Europe?

Post by Arneb » Sun Nov 22, 2020 1:57 pm

Hi all,

the wife has a weird idea for a DIY case. It will be the size of an Intellijel Palette or PulpLogic LBZ54 or something because we're limited by how big a tree trunk I can carry into our 2nd floor apartment. Anyways, there's a lot of reasons to get into 1U for this thing. Now, since the wife isn't the kind of person who'll enjoy having Steppy 1U or O&C in her rack, we're seriously considering going PulpLogic.

However, we're located in Germany, and getting ahold of PL 1U tiles seems to be a bit tricky over here. I was able to find sellers for rails, and getting ahold of Futaba connectors shouldn't be too hard, but quick googling did not find me a seller for the actual tiles. There's one retailer in the UK which imports Plum Audio's PL stuff, but Plum's line-up is... well, not what I'd hope for when going for PL.

So, it kinda looks like PL 1U is a purely American/Canadian/Australian(?) thing which doesn't actually exist over here. Kinda like Frac.

If someone could prove me wrong, I'd be quite thankful :)

Here is a UK-based seller with a small selection of PL 1U tiles, they will ship to you.

I know Shakmat in Belgium do a couple of 1U tiles in both Intellijel and PL sizes, so that adds slightly to your options.

I know Exploding Shed, based in Leipzig, has a few 1U tiles on their online shop. Not much but better than nothing!
