Screws For Xd-v75 Rack 'ears'

Recommended Posts

The screws for the 'ears' to allow rack mounting my XD-v75 unit have gone missing. I can't see any mention of what size they are in the user manual.

 

Can someone enlighten me please as to thread type, diameter & length?

 

Thanks!

i don't know the specifics, but there are generally 2 types of rack screws, a fine thread and a coarse thread, and the type you need is determined by your rack not the equipment being mounted.

Perhaps Abbeyaudio could clarify - is it the bolts that attach the rack ears to the receiver that you're interested in? TheRealZap is referring to the bolts that attach the ears to the rack which is an entirely different proposition.

Thanks for responding guys. So, what I'm after are the countersunk small screws which attach the rack 'ears' (the long & short sections) to the receiver (2 each side as you will have seen).

At first glance I thought the thread is M3 and bought some screws of this size but this assumption was wrong as they're slightly too small and the threads in the receiver sides are a coarser pitch.

 

A friend thinks the threads will take the same screws as are used to secure hard drives??

 

Anyway, hope I've clarified things and someone can now tell me the actual thread type. diameter & length required.

 

Thanks!
