    Was that a dick joke? From a man with a mod called 'Blue Balls'? :p

    Or do I just have a really filthy mind?

    Love your work.. beuatifull machining

    Personally, I would have prefered the "unchanged" faceplate with the "no plexi" body, since it feels more hi-end-hi-fi, but that's just my taste and it's not my build. As for the body you've chosen, my vote goes for #2. All other alternatives have some shape or line interupting another wich just makes it look wrong. I think you should take a second look at #2 where the DVD slot ends and make shure it doesn't cut into the plexi as it might look od.

    Good luck

    Yeah, like the second one, as I wouldn't like the DVD/CD slot to be made into both materials.

    EDIT: It looks like an ancient asian dragon-mask. With the switches being illuminated, this will be even more like it :D

    Cannot decide! AHH TO MUCH PRESSURE!

    Between unchanged, kinda look like a Disney new design :p Or the 5th, dunno why, just looks right. The first of last two, also.

    Option 2

    Sleek, to the point, adds just enough interest to catch the eye, but not to the point where it draws away from the whole case.

    BUILD ON!!!

    Faceplate 6, every time, one of the only ones that doesn't seem a bit too basic for the overall design.

    Great work!

    *Edit* 4 is nice, but the black oval clashes with the design too much.

    The rough pass is sexy enough as it is. I'd like to see something built like that deliberately. -Maybe a series of grooves with a ball-end bit...





    Why did I use the word 'sexy'?
