After about three years I decided to recase my DAO. As it was the Beta build I had used a generic case that left
a little to be desired compared to some of my other builds....

I only retained the heatsinks of the original case since they were about ideal for the layout and were already drilled
and tapped. The new case is a little bit wider but mostly just for the good proportions The custom front plate
was modelled in CAD and cnc cut by Protolabs ($$) All the other case parts were done at a local company (Schaeffer).

Of course I retained the layout but tried myself in better and more proper wiring, and added one of P's SHPP boards
for headphone protection. I also used the LEMO connector at the front that is ever so precise.

Now only the top cover has to be added (the jury is out whether it will be acrylic as CeeVee's case or aluminum, with a
corresponding opening above the blue heat spreader)...

And btw... she's sounding as glorious as ever.
