Dalai Lama,

overhere you have Sphinx amplifiers, from the two guys of Siltech cables.
They have been using black acrylic for front plates of their amplifiers for 20 years.
imo, that stuff still looks very elegant, and for diy it is much more userfriendly than alloy.
Another amp brand from the cheese place built entire chassis
with the stuff in the past, Aitos OTL tube amplifiers.

I dont quite get how you will see light from leds mounted on the top of the heatsinks, you are going to fold yourself over the amplifier while listening to music ?
Nice Mallory caps.

Jean: It's the newer Rev A boards

Jacco: I agree...a black acrylic front would look awfully nice, but I'm content to do some more listening for a while before changing things up too much

As for the LEDs, if I get some nice high-intensity ones and use a couple of them (perhaps one per piece of acrylic), I should notice some light leaking out of the vents (there are vents on top as well)...at least I hope I would

Oh, and the caps are actually some Aero M caps I got on ebay...they were pulled out of an old strobe light system apparently. I haven't been able to find any datasheets on them (they are HES series according to the markings), but they are working quite nicely regardless.

It's a Par Metal chassis (www.par-metal.com). Their prices aren't too bad, and you can get the cases with quite a few options.

The only thing I'd suggest is calling them about availability and pricing...the prices listed on the website are not up-to-date.

Oh Buffalo,

i was just pointing to the versatility of acrylic, not putting an acrylic aura over you.

Aero = Mallory

Jacco: Huh...I wasn't aware of that (Mallory = Aero)...perhaps now I can find a datasheet (just for the heck of it)

I see that the filtering capacitators are bigger, than the toroidal transformer, how much are they ? ? ?
