Any pic of this one ?
Any of you ever tried to recase a player ( beside the "no cased Philips" Simon )?
And all of this ringing iron sheets stuff soundwise?? Test w & w/o anyone?

I've not tried but some people have. No case should be better, or if there is a case it should be hard wood in my opinion. The transformers might want to be shielded in mu-metal and the whole thing covered in copper sheeting to shield the rest, but I can't see that actually being needed.

The case does something bad for the sound.

That's the last 0.01% on an ultimate player like Brent's one if I understand well.
Let's work on a TDA boy instead

My chassis has the KI 2mm steel bottom plate bonded to the chassis with Aluminium paste then an layer of bitumen and then another KI 2mm steel bottom plate sandwiching the bitumen. Then oak cone feet. This helped with low bass and makes the chassis very ridged indeed and approx 7mm thick!

My lid has 2 layers of bitumen and the brace has a layer top and bottom making it very dead

11.64kg is VERY heavy to pick up in your hands when you're expecting a normal CD player weight...!
