These 3U Mini Dissipantes are a great little chassis. With an optional base plate, thoughtful heat sink tapping and careful components placement, one can even fit a First Watt clone amplifier like an F3 in one. The black face plate takes CNC laser engraving well too.
Chassis was packed well,shipped fast, and went together smoothly. Excellent as always
I bought two of these with custom machining on the back panel for a pair of monoblocks. They shipped in less than two weeks even though they had to translate my drawings into CAD. All the holes were perfect.
The only thing I would note is that the top and bottom plates aren't symmetrical - meaning that the mounting holes along the sides to attach to the heat sinks are slightly closer to the back than the front. I drilled my own holes in the bottom, and discovered this afterward. I was still able to get the chassis together, but this made it more difficult.
I have purchased two of these boxes, and the quality was very good in both. Everything aligns well, and they are easy to assemble. The heat sinks are nicely made and are very flat on the inside surfaces, which made mounting amplifier modules easy and helped keep them cool during operation. The custom machining work on the back panel for installation of Neutrik XLR connectors and an AC input socket was first rate.
Arrived in days, wrapped well and in perfect condition. Easy to assemble and high quality. I like the smaller footprint of the mini chassis.
