Default nearly complete stereo UCD400AD's (pics)

ok, finally, the cases are almost complete... the faceplates should be complete today or tomorrow. im just waiting for the call from the powdercoater. (they are being coated in clear matte powder). here are some pics.

the details are (each chassis):

2x UCD400AD's
modified onboard caps, upgraded to panasonics
modified output cap
shared power supply (forgot cap size)
dual bridge rectifiers
shared single 1.7KVA transformer

the case gets pretty warm when listening at full volume. just kidding. its always ice cold.

Impressive heatsinks - they'll take some dusting though.

well, yeah, they will get dusty. it wasnt my prime concern when i built them though...

i was more concerned with the "mine is bigger than yours" phenomenon.

whoa!!

Yours is bigger than mine!

Could be because I concentrate more on building it smaller...
