Product type:
Thunderbolt Expansion Chassis

Three systems to choose from. For many creative professionals, PCIe card expansion for connecting specialty cards to handle audio and video post-production projects is not an option — it’s a necessity! Sonnet designed the xMac Studio for pro workflow flexibility; choose a system configured with a Thunderbolt to PCIe card expansion module that best suits your needs. xMac Studio is also available without a module so you can add one at a later date, or use one of your existing compatible Sonnet expansion modules.

xMac Studio is a rugged steel 3U rackmount enclosure for securing a Mac Studio with optional PCIe card expansion module in a rack, placing the Mac Studio behind a quick and easy to remove front panel. Convenient front panel operation allows you turn Mac Studio on with its own dedicated front power button, connect USB devices through a 4-port USB-A hub, and access the computer’s front ports and SD card slots. When equipped with an Echo III or Echo I PCIe Card Expansion Module, three rear panel locking thumbscrews allow you to easily pull out and access the module and PCIe cards through the front without removing the front panel. The xMac Studio design enables you to connect and disconnect cables without needing to remove the Mac Studio from the enclosure.

An opening on top of xMac Studio ensures hindrance-free wireless signal access. The xMac Studio is designed to allow normal WiFi and Bluetooth wireless operation in most configurations (depending on rack type and position in rack), so you can use wireless devices and iOS® device control apps.

Key Features

Connects PCIe Card Slots to Mac Studio

Use high-performance PCIe cards with the Mac Studio.

Makes Your Mac Studio Road-ready

3U rackmount enclosure with firm rubber cushions securely holds the Mac Studio and Thunderbolt expansion module in place, adding mobility to your workflow.

Ideal for Use in Server Rooms

Standard mounting holes and included adjustable rack rails enable easy installation into any standard server rack up to 24” deep.

Front to Back Airflow Management

Supports direct airflow through the enclosure, Mac Studio, and Thunderbolt expansion module to keep them operating as cool in a rack as on a desk, even when the xMac Studio is mounted between two other rack-mounted components.

Front Panel Power Switch and Integrated USB-A Ports

Front panel button enables operation of the computer’s rear-mounted power switch; integrated USB-A hub enables connection of four USB peripherals to the Mac Studio.

Easy Access

No tools required – removable front panel secured with thumbscrews allows easy installation of and access to the Mac Studio. Secured with three thumbscrews on the back, the Thunderbolt expansion module can be removed and reinstalled through the front of the enclosure without removing the front plate.

Space for Storage

Behind a covered opening beneath the computer is a space to place two Thunderbolt or USB SSDs (sold separately); two included adhesive-backed magnets secure them in place.

Open Slot and Port Access

Provides access to the computer’s SD card slot and front and back panel ports, enabling you to connect and disconnect cables easily.
