hi all,

was wondering where people get aluminum/metal enclosures for their electronics projects. i'm looking for standard cases for solid-state gear (not tubes)... i got a very nice amp case from a company in taiwan a while ago but it was a bit expensive. i've looked at Sescom, but their selection is somewhat limited. Mark V electronics had what i was looking for a while back but i dunno if they are still in business. any suggestions?

thanks,
marc

Check out this outfit. More expensive than the Mark V stuff, but good product.

I use one of the gray-box cases for my current preamp. I like it!

Take a look if you want: http://www.enteract.com/~mlloyd1/audio/page_02.htm

thanks for the info guys, i'll take a look.

incidentally, i got my current amp/preamp case from THL Audio in Taiwan, it is really nice but a little expensive plus international shipping is a pain, but i highly recommend them if you're willing to spend some extra bucks on cosmetics:

And here's another one, a Canadian company. Check their links for stocking distributors.

Has anyone found a case solution that looks like Jolida / Music Hall / maybe Cambridge cases? i.e. black with brushed aluminum faceplate?

would be good to know a decent supplier in europe. can't battle with mixing different faceplates with different chasis with different heatsinks.... i need a one-shop solution.

These are nice, but they aren't made with a silver color faceplate:
