Nice looking amp VoLCom,

mine should be arriving soon, I'm pleased to see the latest version of Peter's boards are in "sexy" blue too!

mmmm guess that means a blue power LED is a must!

just like you I'm a little concerned about the enclosure/chassis, I guess I'll end up buying one - my soldering skills are way ahead of my wood or metal working skills!


cheers


Dave.

yeah i wanted to build an enclosure like this one Click the image to open in full size.
All Black with blue leds in the knobs it looks so nice but i don't have the skills to build an enclosure like that and the tools to anodize... I'll have only one Pot, i have a Stereo Alps Pot but it's a 100k with "10 steps" if i can make what i imagine! the project will be awesome! but it never turns out like that for me lol

Why don't you build an enclosure like that: http://www.audiosector.com/chassis_patek_amp.shtml ?

It's much simpler and no special tools/finishes are really required. There is an upcoming review on that as well: http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/a...tor/patek.html

You can get materials from Metal Supermarkets, they have locations in all major cities. Also, checking surplus outlets may be a good idea.

Check out www.frontpanelexpress.com. You can get pretty nice results by dressing up the front on any otherwise ordinary enclosure

Here's an example of one otheir frons on a Sescom box:

Peter:

Ok, What did you use to build the Patek???? size and thickness??
is it expensive to build???

Sam:

I checked it out and it's a great program the only thing is it's only making a front/back panel, unless you make plain for the side and it should be quite expensive to order from them???? Also I'm using Canare Rj-Ru as the Input Connector and i couldn't find the macro in the program

I'm currently working on an upgraded version of Patek chassis as seen in a review (copper for the panels, use of Madagascar Ebony on the outside with maple subpanels painted with nickel coating), but the original as it was pictured on my site, was built using 1 x 1 copper bar and 1.5 x 3/8 aluminum pieces for front and back. Side panels were made of 3/4 zebra wood. The amp's footprint is 4.25 x 5.5

Top and bottom mesh was bought locally, surplus.
