Default DIY Case

Hello People

I am ahving trouble in finding a decent case for my recently finished Pearl phono stage. I am simply looking for a standard amplifier size black adonised case. Nothing special but something decent. I have tried hammond Fisher etc but not found anything. I have mostly audiolab gear and something similar would be nice. I am in the UK so in the uk or europe would be nice. any help anyone ?

Dave,
Take a look at TEKO.it Local dealers are listed.
They have some nice chassis for various projects.
The attached picture is a headphone amp in a Teko enclosure.

Default A bit of an alternative...

My Pearl boards live in a neat little case that is sold by a local ham-radio company, Elecraft. Their EC-2 cabinet is *really* inexpensive for the quality of material and it has no pre-punched holes so you can set it up to your needs. For this case to work, however, you'll have to flip one board and orient it so that it will mount to the top cover. The result of just about 1/2 the standard rack width.

Check out their EC-1 for the outboard power supply components.

Just a thought.

Cheers,

David

Give us a hint, where can we find the EC-1 & EC-2 on the website ?
