Would these also work: wooden boxes ? For those who find wood easier to work with.
The inside dimensions are large enough to fit the board. You would have to figure out where you want to make the openings of course. Biggest issue I foresee is the thickness of the material. I did not see this dimension listed but I expect it to be significantly thicker than the aluminum cases I list. You may have to experiment with the size of the USB-C opening to get the RCA connectors deep enough into the wood for the nuts to thread on.

Btw the Aluminum these cases are made of is not that hard and is as easier to work with then hard woods in my opinion.

Shipping from NA and EU costs a fortune for us Asians, so it'd be nice if you guys who know any alternatives that are available on AliExpress (or anywhere that ship cheaply to Asian countries) can share some info.

Hi TimW
and all those who are giving new insights

First of all, I'm very grateful to you for your efforts, and share us.. your Khadas tone board box design.
Please, a question.

Are you sure that Vim edition, used alone...not with Vim2, is too taller to your case design?
From my poor eyesight, seems that added headers result at the same level as the RCA connectors

but...

Dimensions (from Khadas tone board specifications)

General edition: 82.0 x 74.5 x 17.0 mm
Vim edition: 82.0 x 74.5 x 24.0 mm




Thank's a lot in advance




P.D; I've a Khadas tone board Vim edition on way to home...
I choose this option thinking about future I2S and PDIF out connections..,. without need to weld
but at this momment...alone with my PC.

Unfortunately yes the VIM edition is too tall. Not because of the pins on top of the board but because of the GPIO Header on the bottom which is taller than the included standoffs I used.
