I seem to remember a discussion in this thread regarding the 3 ball chuck versus puck comparison. It seemed at the time like the preference (sonically) was for the puck model.

BTW, I encourage others to look at this thread

http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/site-...-feedback.html

I already put in a suggestion for a 1/2 rack wide version, which I think would be ideal for this project. Just need a recommendation on the height. I know those in EU and especially the East have somewhat better access to DIY enclosures. In the U.S., by the time shipping and whatnot is added to those nice enclosures available from China or Taiwan the price can get a bit high.

I know there are some U.S. based DIY enclosure providers, but I haven't found anything yet as such that I think would work nicely.

Those prices are still expensive. I can build an enclosure equivalent to the 5u enclosure out of 1/8" and 1/4" thick aluminum plate for $100. I know a guy that will machine cut or waterjet any shape you need. I also have a guy that will cnc beautiful wood face panels with painted lettering and engraved logos. They are U.S. based so shipping is inexpensive. Anyone interested can contact me for their info.

Default Should we start a Shigaclone "enclosure" discussion?

Wow, that sounds great. I wonder, if enough U.S. based people were interested, whether it would make sense to work out what a decent enclosure size and construction would be. Would your friend be able to machine cut and water jet the parts so we could then put it together ourseleves?

They already have a quasi 1/2 rack size, actually 230mm wide (210mm inside).
It's called Galaxy (height 40 mm) or Galaxy Maggiorato (height 80mm)

The guy I know does not offer built enclosures, he only supplies aluminum cut to your specs. You must give him measurements or a template. You can even include the specific location of holes for screws and iec sockets.

Much as I think a beautiful Italian enclsoure would be nice (yes, my last name has a vowel at the end too!), if we in the USA can work something for less money I think that might be more attractive.

Right, I guess that's what I was thinking. We spec out the enclosure, including holes for assembly and through components. Parts get produced; we put them together.

How about an eclosure that has an aluminum top plate mahogany sides and a copper base. I dont think it can be 1/2 rack there wont be enough room for the transformers and shunt regulators. Since its top loading, we should just design a custom size. Or we can even make a seperate housing for the power supplies. This way you wont need to take the whole cd player apart if you want to make changes to the regulators.

I like it. I think I'd also agree with maybe keeping the supplies in a separate case.
