Default Case for DAC project

I am currently working on a DAC project and I am searching for a nice looking case for this project. Does anyone know of a source for quality audio cases/chassis?

If it's small enough, look at the Sure Electronics cases at PE, they look fairly nice and they're affordable. If you don't like the logo faceplate you could add a nice looking wood faceplate over it.

Try the online shop at Alternatively, has some nice enclosures, a few of which (in this instance, a couple of Galaxy Maggioratos) will soon be available from the store.

Default Satellite Receiver Enclosure for DAC Envelope

because the TV stations in most countries switch off their analog transmissions and become digital only (this happens in Germany at April, 30 this year) you will find a lot of satellite receiver devices - now only useful for the use for build-in of other components.
Nokia, Echostar, Chaparal and Drake used top quality chassis for their products.
Here some Examples:
Museum of vintage satellite receivers. BSB squarial, SCT Chaparral Monterey, Coship blind search.
Alle Analogen ITT Nokia Satellitenreceiver
