I think Vikash is a very accomplished web designer for sure. I personally thought his choice to build a nice small chassis using clear materials to show off the boards inside was much nicer than a plain black rack mount chassis.

On the other hand, I have seen some of the boards I believe you have designed and posted and they look very impressive as well. I'm not sure of the details, though, as the threads seem to often get muddled in people arguing and I stop reading at that time. If you had a website that shows some of your projects without the forum arguing, I'd like to learn more about that too.

Vikash gave both and I enjoyed it and still think congratulations are in order.

Hey guys, can we leave the negativity out please. There really is no reason for it in this thread. It is about a nice looking chassis design, not anything else...

Peter, how much current do you think computer cable/plugs can carry? Should 2 pins/wires be used for each voltage rail when used as umbilical for a 3875 or 3886 chip amp? I'm guessing that a single wire is right on the edge...
Not sure how thick computer cable is, but I made the umbilical using stranded cable 0.5mm2 and it seems to be fine. I'm quite enjoying it but for the attenuator. Not nearly enough steps for my taste.

It's ironic that I hate that PC case mod look but still managed to create something you might describe as similar too I actually wanted something that would sit on top of my pillar of external computer peripherals (modem, router, sc break out box...) - hence the size and dimensions of TATCA. Not sure if RFI will allow this though

I tried some holes in the top, but it didnt turn out too well. Probably try again with another design before reverting to plain and simple again.

That about a design in the top?

Maybe a little to childish but you could try doing something neat with the word "Gainclone" or "GC" besides the Gucci sign

or maybe not

Hello Vikash
Earlyer in this thread you mentioned that you would like to make the panels less blend, if you know someone working with stainless steel they probably have the tools for glassblasting (i'm not sure if its called that in english) it's the same as sandblasting using very fine glasspowder instead of sand, this will give the surfaces a nice diffuse look still being able to see the shadows of the components through it.
The material is to "soft" to get a good result using grindingpaper.
You have to be very carefull blasting it, the "glasspowder" is "eating" the material rather fast.
