I like that faceplate .. but i don't' like the vertical orientation of the speaker outputs and lack of a power switch?

If I drew up a new rear plate and face plate, can you make them?

Joe, I also found that it should add a switch. I can add in my own stereo design. The switch can be mounted on the front plate or the back plate, which position is better?

I'd say back, since the front looks so nice and clean the way it is.

I had the same thought of badman's. Just worry that the switch on the back is not easy to operate

why NC400 need to be powered by SMPS600? why not SMPS400?

The NCore continues to increase power output below 4 ohms, so could use 600 into 2.5 or so..

I'd definitely put the switch at the back and Joe has a point about the speaker outputs (i.e. they could be arranged a bit better).

Default where does the NC400 sit?

Dear Siliconray,
one question before I order the beautiful case. From the holes on the drawing I presume that you have the power supply sitting at the back and the Ncore400 at the front. Now to me it seems wiser to have the NC sitting in the back, else you run the risk of picking up noise when passing the input or loudspeaker cables to the back via the power supply. Can you change that or is the case design flexible so that you can just turn the bottom plate the other way?

SMPS is at the front and NC400 is at the back. The glamour shots just show it backwards. The bottom panel can go either way so no worries.
