Aluminum rack-mount chassis 2U tall (3.5″, 88mm) and 8″ deep (203mm). Textured black paint, except on the interchangeable front and rear panels which are smooth white and smooth black.
This chassis is ideal for a single or multiple preamp kit(s) plus power supply. For instance, our PSU-PRE preamp power supply mounts horizontally, with the PRE board(s) mounted vertically using right-angle brackets. Tubes are typically horizontal, but can be vertical if an insulating board is sandwiched between the chassis bottom and the audio PCB. This applies to preamp tubes only – EL-84s are too tall for a vertical orientation and must be horizontal in this chassis. Ventilation is good. Use with any of these London Power kits: F-PRE, D-PRE, LP-PRE, M-PRE, S-PRE or Z-PRE, and/or with BFX and LINE.
Note: When incorporating multiple kits, e.g. to produce a 3+ channel preamp, use the 13″ deep chassis rather than the 8″. With tubes, space is your friend 🙂 .
