11" deep is good, leaves some space for power supply directly on a 7 pins midi cable & maybe even a wireless.

FWIW, that's actually where you want them for a good signal. Red isn't peaking.
That's silly. I still think that the idea that red isn't peaking yet, is a weird idea, and I remember I got a lot of flack for expressing that in the past... I was peaking at one point on the inputs without even knowing it, because the axe reds don't tell me that...

Anyway, while the Axe is getting bigger and bulkier, Bias is releasing this:
Total win.

From the Bias website - " Add to that a glitchless effects loop for your favorite effects and the ability to take pedals like a champ, and BIAS MINI makes the impossible possible."

I've hear the Axe has some of those effects and pedals included? And that effects loop thingy?

How lucky we all are to have such choices yes?

The only problem is the amp sounds and feel, they are just meh.

How much heat does all this processing power put out? Is a 3U case adequate? Would 4U with a space above a better choice?
