Interest for Mini Tower Case for Headphone Amplifiers
Mark has promised to do one last case GB before his retirement.
This is only because we want to clear the extrusions we have and not discard them as scrap metal.
Too much of a waste.
So this is a one-time tentitive offer for the tower case I use for my own High Power DAO:
The DAO SE all-FET Class-A ZGF Headphone Amplifier
It will be limited to 8 cases maximum (if we have no rejects).
It has a monolithic rectangular tube extrusion as main chassis.
The tube is imported German 6060 extrusion measuring 80 x 200 x 265mm.
The heatsinks have ventilation slots milled between the fins, as is also on the top plate.
2x 6mm 6061 heat spreaders will be provided so that you can premount everything before bolting them to the heatsinks.
It also allows you to reuse the case for a new project by just making new spreaders yourselves.
The base is CNC milled from solid 18mm 6061 aluminium, and has a clearance pocket for transformer / wiring.
Front and rear panels are 8mm 6061 AL. Top plate is 3mm 6061. All CNC milled and not stamped.
No screws are visible from the front and the rear.
Overall size 155mm wide, 285mm high, 216mm deep.
Heatsinks are 200 x 255 x 38 mm each.
Inside dimensions 72 x 192 x 264 mm.
A tight fit for the DAO, but plenty of space for all our other headphone amp designs.
It will be a blank case, so no pre-drilled holes for RCAs, mains cable, ...., etc. on the rear.
We shall provide pilot holes for RCAs at the default position, so that you can align them easily.
The front is fully finished as shown, including 11mm predrilled holes for a REAN RT5MPR Mini XLR socket.
It also includes all the mounting hardware and dial for a TKD 2CP601 volume pot.
We probably shall support ONE option for no volume cutout at the front.
Price not yet know. Probably ~2500 HKD plus Paypal plus shipment.
We don't make money, just cover cost.
The recently shown case for the DAO GB1 costs a lot more (just to make).
And not a promise; just gauging interest before any decisions from our side.
Any takers ?

For a few of us, 2019 will be the year of Xen... You're killing us Patrick.
I'm hoping the DAO can resurface one day and we will be offered this case

1) Morde, no volume cutout
2) Cloud85, with volume cutout ?
We'll just make as many as subscribed, plus 2 for ourselves.
Will also make a wonderful case for chipamps. More than enough heatsink.
