Default Precision Alignment

The reason for the precision alignment is due to use of CAD software and CNC equipment. It never ceases to amaze me what can be done with this combination.

Bigun, You aren't alone asking about black anodized panels, but so far there doesn't seem to be enough interest. There's always Front Panel Express.

We'll offer a special pre-order for you on the next run (the current next production batch has already finished and is about to start shipping from Italy right now so this pre-order won't be for another 3 months, and delivery for 6 months).

I have asked and all 10mm front panels are compatible with handles.

On Pesante 4mm front panels (we don't stock these) you can use one hole that exists already and must drill one hole yourself.

On slim line 4mm front panels (we don't stock these) you must make two new holes yourself.

I think everyone agrees they are really superbly manufactured cases.

You will need to make a run to the hardware store for nuts/bolts, as the included hardware isn't long enough for the perf base.

The next batch (will be shipping in 2-3 months) will have longer screws included so if you mount the perforated base "upside down" you can attach the perforated base properly as well as the feet using the supplied screws.

As mentioned before, contact us to get some free ones sent out to you or you can buy longer ones yourself locally or from the following URLs (to be updated - still waiting on a URL to buy the longer feet screws):

To mount the perforated base upside down: http://www.amazon.com/Machine-Screws.../dp/B009TE4NK6
To mount the feet when you have the base upside down: TBA (Self tapping screw with diameter 3.9mm x 14 mm)

Is there any ETA on the 2U Pesante (Maximally Vented) chassis being back in stock? Any pre-orders?

Are all items which are out of stock basically 2-3 months lead time?

Finding out about the 2U Pesante Max Vented to see if we can get some added to the next batch (about to go out).

Yes, all Hifi2000 items which are out of stock are around 2-3 months lead time (I'd like to think 2 months since it's about to be put on the ship but history has shown it's always best to be extremely conservative with dates).

For the 2U Pesante chassis (standard venting), where are the bottom ventilation holes located?

Ideally I'd like the air to flow into the bottom front and out of the top rear. Will this be possible?

If not, can the bottom chassis cover be turned 180 degrees if need be?

Thanks!

We can't get more of these on the next order, sorry. We'll have some on the next batch (6 months . Try ordering directly from Hifi2000 if you really need it before then

I have confirmed with Hifi2000 that yes the chassis covers can be turned 180 degrees to create a "flow through" airflow if you like. The top and bottom covers have the same vents.

Looking to hear back from those that used the blank rear plate - how and what did you use to make an entry for the power entry module? I was thinking of a dremel rotary tool but have visions of going through quite a bit of "cutting wheels". Is there a better way?

Thx
Neville
