                  Thanks Red and Alti!

                  I'm now working on a real nice case, made of anodized aluminium... well designing it really, the production will be handled by a specialist company that also made the first philips dvd-player's remote control, so they should know their stuff

                  More pics coming tomorrow...

                      Well, for now the case is only a plastic recycled case that once was a "please hold the line"-music box thingy... here's some pics:







                      I hope that in about 4-6 weeks I'll have the first prototype of the aluminium box.

                        hey setup looks real nice how long it take you to make the screen bezel.
                        I was wondering when You bring it in the house, if you do, do use a AC power supply or are you powering the opus threw those 5v 12v on back of the case
                        from a desktop AC ATX power supply? that make sense?

                              That's 2 times boobs, prefer spaghetti's boobs though

                              It took me quite some time for the bezel, as I sanded/painted in the evening 1 or 2 layers and then went to sleep, work, sand/paint .... etc... I think it took me 2 weeks or something.

                              Those 5v and 12v connections are outputs from the opus, to power the screen, amp-remote and usb-soundcard...
                              When I take the computer inside, i hook it up to a power supply that used to power my cb-equipment in the days... 13.8v @ 7A, which is a bit tight but it keeps running (very hot though)...
