We decided to convert across our entire dimmer inventory to the JSI CD80SV rolling rack retrofits due to our ongoing problem with modern console compatibility, reliability and high maintenance of the original components on our 20+ year old dimmer racks. During our research we were impressed with the high quality of the JSI components and well thought out engineering enabling quick, painless, and uncomplicated retrofitting. JSI, and Emlight Designs, response to all our inquires during our research were fast, technically informative and always generous in offering support during and after the conversion. The conversion process was smooth, complete supported in person by Emlight, and easier than we were even hoping for. To date we have had zero issues with them. All console boards have been compatible, zero mystery errors as with the originals, and the end users find them to be the easiest racks they have ever worked with.
Best decision we ever made.
