Tempered glass is not bad, even if it takes something out of the magic. For this machine there is provision for such a piece but we'll see in the future.
There exist ventilation ports in all the cases where heat generation is above critical limits. All power transformers run very cool, as no piece is stressed above 11.000 Gauss and wire resistance is not high.
Some more pics will be uploaded during the next days.

Simply stunning! What is the covers made out of, and how did you match up the paint with the Corian so well?

Chassis is not painted, natural corian color without further painting. Absolutely seamless

My 211 SETs get delivered on Monday....40kgs each....not quite what you have going but none the less monsters. This looks to be a labour of love (can't believe you wound that much iron!!!).

Love it! For nothing more than manly excess as we should do.

Why suicide? Accident. Hooked a cable by foot, fell down on the amp, too late to call ambulance...
