I'm actually don't mind the extra weight of the S.S. enclosure, I must admit the first thing that came to my mind was the mirror finished S.S. look which scratches very easily - similar to some O2 plates done is S.S. that I saw here on the forum - however if the S.S. is done with a brush finish I think it can look quite good and the enclosure will be more tolerant to scratches and things like that.

By the way the enclosure I'm referring to is the ODAC one, am I misreading something or are planning on having some RCA coming out of the ODAC?

Also these are two Hammond case that seem to work with the ODAC.

1455A1202 and 1455B1202

What I don't like about them are the semi-circle type edges as opposed to being rectangular like my O2

If stainless steal then the brushed version, I myself don't like the polished version as well. No, you are not misreading anything, the plan is to provide RCA output on the stand alone version as well as the 3.5 mm socket.

I do not like the edges as well... Furthermore the Hammond cases are for PCBs with a size of 60 x 120 mm, as the ODAC has a footprint of 49 x 58 mm I do not see how they could fit except using the old trusty hot glue gun

That's a problem even with the large Box B2-080, but it's easily resolved. Use "bumpers" and even the slim cases won't budge:

We give these away with every amp/DAC housed in an aluminum case.

Hi JDS, agree with you, the other advantage is obviously that you do not scratch your furniture or case.
We as well supply them with every case.
