And now, for comparison, how metal DAC chassis is built.

There are large pads on the bottom of the board to attach custom made RCA jacks mounts.

That assembly slides into 2 x 3" aluminum tubing, the board is attached to the bottom using six 1/4" standoffs. That locks the front plate in position.

Hi Peter,
You may have answered this in the original Patek thread, but I can't seem to find it.

Where do you get your perforated metal for the top of your "Patek" line? Metal supermarkets? What is the thickness and hole diameter?
Thanks,
Alex

The holes are 0.1" dia with a pitch of 0.190 and 0.330" (diamond pattern), 0.40 thick.

I got that particular material surplus, but will need to buy more. The Metal Supermarkets can order it for you from that place: http://www.diamondman.com/index.html

2 x 3 ordered.

Have you got diagrams with sizes for the front and rear panels?

Yeah, I got the drawings and can email them to you.

However, the DAC in a wooden enclosure sounds better, and even better without any enclosure (that's how I'm using mine).
