Default My 1st Aleph Amp

Thought I'd share pictures of me Aleph30 in progress. The chassis is complete and I'm now focusing on the electronics.

The main chassis plate was built through frontpanel express and bent into a box on a sheet metal brake.

The heatsinks are the large ones from Conrad heatsinks.

This was a lot of fun to assemble, and a great excuse for me to buy the drill press I always wanted. I'm happy with all the drilling and tapping of the screw holes. This was my first attempt to tap screw holes and everything worked out well.

You might like the Service warning on the back.

It warms my heart to no end that Nelson likes the chassis.

A HUGE thank you to Nelson, and everyone on this forum who have been kind enough to answer my questions. It is an honor to share the collective wisdom and ideas in this forum.

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

Frontpanel express charged $187USD including shipping. Not inexpensive, but the outcome is professional looking. I noticed a lot of builders use aluminum plates and aluminum square stock. Thought this might be an easy approach, and it was.

All said and done, it costs less to buy a good used Aleph30... but that would't be as much fun.
