Hahah truer words have not been spoken, I ran mine on my desk until I realized I had no space and got a small night stand placed next to my desk for it.

Correct it is larger than the S8s and with pedestal it stands tall. For me i wont put it under my desk. I paid to much for something just to sit on my floor. It will have its own place to stand on where the machine can show its self of to all. That's why i got the windowed one.

It wouldn't fit under a desk i think. But why put that case there smile.gif I would say it depends on what you want in the case. The S8s is more stubby from the top but the rest is the same. LIke we say a shaved version.

Absolutely Correct. I want mine to be seen. The best place would be on its own little table i think. wink.gif

LoL i have a big monster here. Wife said my gosh its bigger. "Replied" i thought you like it big darling biggrin.gif

Lol ye the case actually looks big in pictures but it is very misleading. Not saying its a small case - but comparing to say the SMA8 the S8 with out pedestal is smaller but wider case.

The height with out casters and rubber feet is 14.54" x 19.03" x 18.74" (369mm x 483mm x 476mm)

The pedestal is another 19.03"L x 14.54"W x 7.72"H (486mm x 369mm x 196mm) so total height of the S8 with pedestal is 672mm

The SMA8 measures in at 11.25" x 26.56" x 25.75" (286m x 675mm x 654mm)

So with the pedestal the S8 sits just a little higher than the SMA8 wink.gif

It only has one pedestal. The case actually is small and compact with a good amount of room to build into. I think its more on the high end side of the S series cases.
