I've come up with the following alternative, in which the tubes will stick up thru the top plate about 1".
It's a different look, some will like it, some won't.
It's a solid oak chassis with aluminum top plate and a rear I-O plate. Size is 17x10x3" height
The 3rd photo was one sent by a customer using an all aluminum chassis with wood side plates, with the tubes fully above the top.
My version will have all the transformers INSIDE under the top cover.
Hope to have more of the regular original style in about 5-6 weeks. This is available now.
