Thanks Wave.

Effectively, the Ikea´s handles are for protect the tubes, caps... and EMO are very nice, prac, hard and economical...

If you have kid, pet or a home-employee, you know that I say.

Ikea is a shop for the DIY.

Well, I prefer the metal chassis (Pasante-Modu or aluminum chassis) for some reasons:

I like the simple stile of the front panels. Clean and with the essential. All component of my audio (DIY or not) have the same look.

The metal chasis gave me a solid structures for built. Yes, I understand that a chassis wood for a Tube amp is ver nice... but I prefer Aluminum, sorry.

Cheers

I'm with you all the way. Aluminum provides shielding and makes for a nice, rigid chassis. You can drill and tap holes in it. It machines nicely and doesn't split if you look at it funny.

Yep. Big fan of alumin(i)um.

My concern is not with materials, my concern is with mass produced chassis with no personality whatsoever. Guess you added the handles because you felt it did look a bit plain as it was - and you were right.

About my headphone amp. Getting there, that handle must go tho'.

I'm considering a push-pull design.

OK, Cassiel, yes from this point of view, you have reason. On this times, the wood is an exotic component.

Nice amp!

It looks a bit more pull pull harder to me.
