Very nice work.

What made you put transformers on the outside of the case? I thought they were all board mounted on this project? Considerations of weight or of noise?

Thank you.
V2 of the 670 PCB holds only some In and Out trannies. The control amp trannies as well as the 4 power transformers and the 2 chokes are on the back of the case. They help with noise and EMI, although The comp is extremely quiet.

This looks like a beast of an undertaking. Thoroughly impresses here  ;D

Fantastic build!!
What case is that? Doesn't look like the collective cases?
I'm about to start building one myself. Just waiting for drip to get the new batch of boards ready.

Nice, tidy wiring!

Finished my vertical 670 too.

Installed two 12VDC fans running slow at 6V too, unit gets really hot otherwise.

Congrats! You're right! those fans really help with the heat!
