Alternatively you could use Neutrik XLR jacks.

If you want to use other RCAs and Binding Posts then choose the back panel with pilot holes.
The XLR cutout is compatible with either Neutrik or Cardas this is common on both back panels

Hi Pico- Please add me to the club for one chassis. Thanks.

Here is how to order and pay.
You can't place an order just yet but here is the link

Ricerca - 1HFTOXIC

To explain:
If you are just buying the chassis you should add these handles to the order
Maniglie tonde 3 unita cromate

The full kit includes handles and an internally mounted steel perforated plate which makes mounting pcbs etc to the bottom of the chassis easier

This has now been simplified so that the handles have been added to the Chassis Only order
