Would it be feasible to remove the front panel and send it to Front Panel Express to be etched/drilled? If not, a version with no front panel would be useful for those who want an FPE front panel made.

Quoting from ESP - Heatsink design and transistor mounting :
"It is vitally important that any recess or countersinking is only large enough to prevent metal "stretch" - overly large recesses will do more harm than good, either by reducing the available surface area, and/ or allowing the transistor flange to be distorted."
+1 for the 3U with w/o heatsinks

This is awesome. Thanks Jason!

I'd order at least one of the smaller ones and one of the bigger ones.

Yes, US source for a selection of HiFi200 boxes would be fantastic, but please stock the all aluminum versions! My vote is for the 10mm silver fronts.

I'm in...1 small first then probably 1 more small and 1 medium.
I vote for the silver. And I would definitely order the DFB & PTH.

The best offering from DIYAudio store - I need couple big ones myself. All Aluminum will be better for Shileding/ Calss A cooling. It can be even offered as optional

Fantastic idea guys. I too vote for the all aluminum version. From experience, the 3mm aluminum panels are very easy to work with and can easily be sent to Front Panel Express for engraving (I'm guessing the steel panels are too thin for that).

I find the 2U 350mm deep Slim Line cases work a bit better with my line-level/DAC type projects. The extra couple of inches is very nice to have.

The silver front panel is nicer than the black in person.

The HiFi2000 front panels are removable. I've used Front Panel Express on almost all of my projects, and have shipped HiFi2000 10mm front panels to them for processing. Here's an example.

Scott

Very nice, Scott. How does the front panel attach? What are those switches and pots mounted on?
