Highlights of Sidecar

When I ordered the Sidecar with the Platform back in 2019, I wasn’t sure what to expect since it was so new. The things that really caught my eye were the features.

  • Optional Shelf & Sliding Tray
  • Cable Storage
  • Cable Management

The sidecar did live up to my expectations. The build is sturdy, and the hinges feel great when opening and closing the door. Again, cable management is what I really love. They have cable openings in every place you can think of. Output has some great tutorials too on how to build out their studio collection.

I can’t really think of any negative about Sidecar, but If I had to name one would be the slide shelf hinges.

  • The sidecar hinge lock seems to stay locked when you try to push back into the sidecar. You have to push down the locks from the hinges to make it go back. Not a big deal for me, but I can see how this can be annoying if you use this pull-shelf every day. Perhaps If I did use it more often, it wouldn’t lock up? Perhaps I need to oil down a bit with some WD-40?

I’ve had the sidecar for a little over a year, and I’m pleased with it. It looks sleek with the Kodiak brown stain. Since I have sold a few of my studio outboard gear, I might turn the bottom portion into my vinyl collection with my RT85 Reference High Fidelity Vinyl Turntable.
