I've decided i'm upgrading all my gear to a rack.

Line6 Relay G90
Isp decimator rack
and i need a tuner

In your opinion, what's the best / Your favourite?

I'm using a Boss Tu-2 now, so i'd like the quality to be of a similar / Better level.

Oh, it needs to be chromatic aswell, not just 'string 1, string 2 etc...'

You could get a Snark clip on tuner, they're really accurate. \m/
Edit: Sorry, forget you said you wanted a rack mounted tuner.

Possibly. I found that when you played a string, the tuner was really slow to respond, especially when turning the tuning peg.
Might might have just been broken in all fairness haha

I've had a Korg DT-1 Pro for 10 or 15 years and it's sensational.

I use a Korg model, and have had no issues with it ever. I think I have the same one Cathbard has. Seems to respond well, is definitely accurate enough to get the job done, and honestly I really can't see any reason to upgrade it.

The DT-1 has five inputs on the back too. Each one is buffered and it isn't a tone sucker.
I can actually have all my guitars plugged into the back and have the mix out feeding my rig (it actually feeds a GP-8 I run in front of my amp) and use the DT-1 as a non-adjustable mixer. I just turn down the volume control on the guitars I am not playing and I get no appreciable extra noise or tone degradation.
I leave it running in tuning mode at all times and have been known to tweak the tuning half way through a solo. The thing is just a joy. One of the best things I've ever bought.

And, it's got a wide enough range to tune a piano.

When I had my monster 15u rack a few years ago, I used the Peterson. It worked great (and helped me keep my mandolin and pedal steel in tune, too). However, I hate turning my back to the audience to tune, so I just keep a TU-12 on my pedalboard.
