A small and silent expansion chassis.

Softron has a lot of experience working with Sonnet and their xMac mini Servers and xMac Pro Server solutions. These are amazing products that have been put into service by a number of our users who require rack-mountable solutions. The Sonnet Echo Express SEL is the only Thunderbolt 2 device that is suitable for Low-Profile cards, making it the smallest yet most powerful solution to accommodate the Low-Profile Deltacast card that we chose for the M|80. As you can see in the picture above, you will notice notice that this chassis is very small - just like the new MacPro! AND most importantly, it is QUIET!
