The inclosure is pretty simple, yet functional. I'm using 3 x 2 aluminum tubing, with end caps attached, sort of Amp-1 styling

How do you actually attach those endcaps? I can't see any screws, and I don't think they're glued

The ones in a pictures were actually glued. This was prototype and I didn't have the time to order machined pieces, so I cut them myself from 1/4" plate. The front plate can be mounted permanently and the board is only attached to rear plate and slides out. The rear panel is attached to board, the board attached to the bottom with 6 screws.

However, in a final version both plates will have milled out notch that goes inside tubing and is press fitted. One screw on bottom will provide additional security.

This is the same way that AMP1 and PS are made.

The complete DAC will be selling for at least $900 under Audio Zone name.

I still didn't figure kit prices, but they will be rather affordable

Received the boards today. The gold on the boards looks great with the clear soldermask, much better than the pictures!

I hope to put the dac together soon

Thanks,

Here is a picture with the Sounds Connections (Vampire Wire) rca connector, which has the same footprint as the BNC.
