Has anyone odered the 4 U Delux Chassis with XLR's for an additional fee of $30.00 Euros from the manufacturer? There looks like plenty of room below the RCAs to install XLRs. However, the manufacturer wants CAD drawing of back plate to drill the XLRs. I do not have the software to do this. Hope some else has already done it.
Thanks in advance.

1000volts:

For that price, you might consider getting the 5U deluxe chassis with the plain back panel from diyaudio's store and use Front Panel Express to mill it to your exact specification. Yes, it'd be bigger than what you'd initially wanted, but you'd have plenty of room...

Regards,
Scott

Normally not a problem for a DIY'er, but these are premium priced products.
We have discussed these two items with Hifi2000 and...
  1. The next batch of handles will be specially manufactured to have less slack
  2. The countersunk holes will be slightly deeper in the next batch to accomodate the screws, which the screw supplier made out of specification (slightly larger)

Every little bit of feedback helps improve the product. Thanks very much.

This has been a not so uncommon request. I think we'll add them to the next batch. We don't have time to update the CAD diagrams right now, but I'll contact you when we do and you can either order the back panel directly from Hifi2000 or wait for the next batch (probably 4-5 months off).

Sorry we don't do custom work. Try Hifi2000 and see what they can do for you.

Default DIYAudio Store 4U Chassis Modifications

I was disappointed that heatsink removal from the Store 4U Chassis was so difficult after full assembly of an amplifier. Based on my experience with a Hafler 220, I made some modifications to the Store Chassis to make heatsink removal easy. I drilled 4 holes in the corners of each heatsink and in corresponding locations in the attachment brackets to attach the heatsink using #6 socket head screws from the OUTSIDE of the chassis. This allows the heatsink to be easily removed by disconnecting the amplifier PCB connections and removing these 4 screws, which is accomplished in a couple of minutes.

Smile HIFI 2000 Customized 3U - awesome

I decided that 4U was a bit too tall for my project so I checked out the standard offerings at HF2000. Unfortunately, they had no back panel laid out like the store options. I contacted Gianluca at HF2000 and he was very willing to make up drawings (for my approval) which modified the 4U rear panel layout for 3U (see pic). Then for a $30 upcharge, he was willing to ship that panel instead of the solid panel on his standard 3U heatsink chassis. Shipping was reasonable and fast and the packing was phenomenal. Just wanted others to know of this option since the store does not have one (but might be a great addition).

Great idea. I was also disappointed in how the chassis assembles.
