Media / Network rack temperature

Hey everyone I have a question on temperature for my media rack.

I have my network / media rack in a cabinet with perforated cabinet door fronts.

Equipment is:
Ubiquiti switch and udm-pro
Blue sound players
Rogers avr
Anthem receiver
Exhaust fan

Currently I set the fan to kick in at 85 degrees F. Is that an acceptable temperature for av equipment?

Front perforated racks are meant for servers and storage, hardware with front to back cooling. Switches usually have side to side cooling this why they're usually in 2 post and 4 post open racks. Not sure how the rest of your equipment cools, but may be worth considering the rack type to get good air flow.

It is an open rack, the rack sits inside a built in cabinet with perforated holes
