Well made chassis.. included hardware did not fit well with the baseplate. I needed to add stand off nuts. I would consider the baseplate mandatory to build a clean setup. I did have to scrape away some paint on screw holes to ground entire chassis.
I used this case for a ESP project 101 class AB amp. with internal heat sinks. The 10mm face with optional handles really looks the part! I also used the optional slotted top to mitigate cooling with the internal sinks.
There really is no competition, China cases are iffy and take weeks. The 'other' Ebay option (Antek) are nice but are not as finished for the price.
Well done DIYaudio and Hi-Fi 2000.
I did a lot browsing on Ebay and Amazon for amplifier chassis. When you compare features vs price you can't beat this Pesante chassis. Some of the Chinese enclosures seem like a good price until you see the $40 shipping fee. The chassis on Diyaudio ship free, they're sturdy and easy to work with.
I would recommend getting the extra baseplate. You can attach all the guts to it and just drop it into the case. Easy peasy.
Strong and easy to assemble.
Very pleased with this quality case. Good fit, finish and customizable. Dimensions are accurate. I highly recommend the optional base plate for rigidity. The shipping time was more than acceptable. Well worth every dollar. Definitely recommend.
Better than expected. Worth every penny.
