One step further. Preamplifier/signal processor and power amplifier are separate units mounted in a 19" rack case, stacked on top of one or more loudspeaker cabinets. The possibilities are virtually unlimited, and components can be added to suit individual needs. Power conditioners, multiple pre and power amplifiers, effects units, tuners, compressors, crossovers, you name it. Often functions are combined into one unit, like a multi effects processor, which could incorporate a compressor, equalizer, chorus, overdrive, delay, reverb, etc.
