top quality case with the well known top quality doepfer PSUs! only things that gets me down but still can live with them.
1. its hard to add the screws in the top line of the angled row 2. the depth of the flat row is not always enough and is a pain to reach the bussboards as the distance is big. most of my modules are getting hard to catch their volts. some expanders may be needed in some cases. 3. the 2 things above making life hard to add/remove/change modules very often. after of already 2 re-arrangements i really dont want to think about the third. i really prefer working on a mess for ever than to put everything out of the case and get it back in
Bought this as wanted a portable case that was sturdy enough to be able to take on the road and provide good, clean power to a number of modules. Can't really fault this option for the price as gives the usual Deeper build quality.
The 1200ma power supply is probably just right for a case of this size, a common complaint of the 9U version of this case seems to be that the power supply is the same size so you are more likely to run into power problems with that if using some digital modules. It would have been nice for the power outlet to be on the side so as to have the option of using it laid down flat (I understand that this was possible on the older versions) but not really a big deal.
All in all very happy with this case for the money and already thinking about buying a base to sit underneath and hold sequencing modules!
