@joshua...could you please give me some pointers regarding getting some good cabinets for power amp/preamp?Perfect Metals, Bangalore has a wide variety, and they'll ship anywhere in the country.
Anodizing will have to be done by end user. They sell raw aluminium heat sinks.
Thanks a lot for the details. By raghu you mean Raghu from Hyd right?For line level gear, Raghu makes two kinds of cabinets - one meant to house the SSP, CNC or Hypnotoad MC phono pre, and a DCB1, plus one OPS power supply unit to power it all. This is a large, all-in-one cabinet. The second one is a small cabinet to house only one of the above devices. I like Raghu's cabinets because he uses the thickest MS sheet that I've come across (making it very sturdy), and the screw holes align perfectly (a big thing on my books).
For power amp, please check out the Ovation amp build thread around here. I can't recall the exact source but the OP had sourced a very good looking cabinet for his Ovation amp.
Of course there are other sources for both types of cabs.
