Default Newbie question - Enclosure

I am new to this forum. Greetings to all!

I am currently designing a 200W/ch amplifier with DC servo, no caps in the signal path, Darlington output, etc. Possibly based around a LM4702. I'm still on the fence about that...

While, as an EE, the electronics design isn't causing me much grief, what to use as an enclosure is.

I want it to look like something I purchased OTS assembled, rather than a home-brew project. Any suggestions?

I'm sure this has been asked before, and pardon the redundancy if it has, but I haven't found a suitable answer by seraching.

I will post photos, schematics, test results, etc when it is built and tested in the appropriate area.

Try ATI research in Thailand.
Your US neighbours seem to have found quite a few local suppliers.

Another thing you can do is use old stereo component enclosures. Remove the current face plate and go to a metal supermarket and get a new face plate cut, then you can drill appropriate holes, polish/paint/anodize to whatever type of finish you want and put them together.

Now, we can do this the hard way, or... well, actually there's just the hard way.

This is a very common question, wish there was a wiki for it.
