very interesting! dont you think opc?

this I think is that case we were looking for, I reckon you could probably even run dual dacs using that side heatsink with the IV and dac mounted against the wall and bolted securely and still have plenty of room for an eleberate PSU, USB->i2s etc etc and if we band together we can probably get the price down as well as getting customized mounting arrangements and holes like he did for the NCore guys. pretty sexy too IMO

$240 plus shipping

Hi,

I read a lot of pages of this thread but I am not sure of this.
Is the PCB from this GB ok for the buffalo III ?
Thanks for your answer.

Love that chassis!

Could we have the front panel milled for an LCD? We would just have to specify what type of LCD to get (“Standard” HD44780 compatible LCD 20×4 as an example).

I know this part is a little more complicated...

Do you know what the shipping could be for a chassis of this weight and size?

Anyways, looks really interesting!

Do

indeed its pretty much perfect for this project as is. still looks like a dac chassis, slick looking and enough heatsink for 2 x ntd1, or 1 x ntd1 with shunt regs for the dac and an i2s/clock and dual dac people theres still easy enough alloy and space around to sink to if you need more. in fact I wouldnt really need an external PSU case with this fella provided we get some internal panels for a second floor. though I may still use an external box for AC just so I can use my cannons somewhere hehe.

the LCD type I had in mind was the one that AR2 used, which is actually a Noritake U
type VFD (Vacuum Florescent Display) , a drop in LCD replacement

like I said, if we can get enough of us, they will customize mounting arrangements, holes etc.

Hi qusp,

I really like it! Having the correct front panel is imperative for me though. I need to have an option for mounting a knob (for ESS volume control), and I'd really prefer if the knob was provided with the front panel so we can all agree on something.

I'd also be up for an LCD, but again, it would need to be standard so it works for everyone.

Cheers,
Owen
