I second @audphile1 and the suggestion to simply a change your duplex box to a quad box.  Use whatever fancy (or not) outlets you want.  Depending on your current draw needs, service box capacity, and access, you could even run two dedicated lines... 
Mojo Audio - Mystique Y NC DAC
@ken6217 - I have owned all four (v3, B4B21, PRO, and X SE) and IMO, yes there is. The EVO B4B21 is the second to highest culmination of Mojo Audio DACs starting with the Mystique v3 and ending with the PRO. The X SE IME was more forward and trade... 
Mojo Audio - Mystique Y NC DAC
Here ya go, in the words of the mfg: The X24 NC with Z chips is going to be the best of all worlds of our DACs with the AD1862 DAC chips IMO. Then again, the Y NC does things with the AD1865 DAC chips that none of our DACs with the AD1862 chips... 
Mojo Audio - Mystique Y NC DAC
@mfisher702 - I started with Benjamin modifying my Mac mini years ago and have owned his Mystique v3, B4B21, EVO PRO, and X SE. I have kept my EVO PRO which has the (more highly sought after) Z-version of the AD1862 chips and sold the others. How...

You might consider looking through the virtual systems to see what others are using under their turntables that would meet your esthetic needs.  
Audio Racks, Just How beneficial? looking for guidance in upgrading
After deciding on the esthetics (with your SO, if applicable), I agree with @ghdprentice in the approach of finding a rack that provides a very stable platform for each component as well as the ability to treat the support of each component indivi... 
Roon Aquisition: Will This Help Or Hamper?
I am fine with Roon, as always.  However, they are still not shipping the Nucleus Titan or the Nucleus One.  Is there a parts (chip?) shortage affecting manufacturing? Good to see they are able to do the Nucleus One at only $500.  It has a fan bu... 
Cable Break In for the Naysayers
