Ain't that metal holders from IKEA?

What's the purpose of placing them across different places of your amplifier top plates?

I like it too but the more I look at it the more I think it's not a chassis for tubes - and I'm no fan of chip amps.
We'll see.... maybe I can get all the parts inside.

Every time I post here I feel obliged to post a picture. It's the photo thread. This one had a 'wasted' look but it was discarded - not good enough.

I think they are cabinet handles. I have some in my kitchen.

I would guess that it was done because it looks nice. That chassis is very attractive, I would be proud to have built it.

It's elegant but it's a SS chassis. The enemy within.

SS...? Solid-State? Stainless-Steel?

It looks to me like an blank kit anodised aluminium chassis of the type often found from HK or China based sellers on Ebay. I am currently using a slightly larger one for a project that I am working on.

@blackdod - I like the look that you have achieved. The extra metalwork is a nice touch

I think we all know what a solid state chassis is and what it looks like. Even my revered Nagra is doing that - putting tubes on top of a SS chassis.

To me it looks weird but many people like it - to each his own.

Solid state chassis or not, I like an aluminum chassis. The ones Regi's using look nice. I could live without the drawer handles and red bottom lighting, but that's just my personal taste.

Handles are usually handy to protect sockets, knobs, tubes...

Now,really....I realised that long time ago......I also see cats on many homes where the music play on audio sistems.
I have 2 tigers and allways came close to the tubes when they are ON.
May be cats choose people that love music? :-)
