This is my topic to record the assembly of 2 complete separate monoblocks, including separate power supplies as follows:



A good friend will assist me with the assembly, I am into listening to music, not electronics.

Photos with all the stuff gathered up to now will follow.

Special thanks to: @daniboun for inspiration, only after seeing his work, photos and details I got the courage to go for it.

Found 2 metallic cases, quite cheap, but need additional holes. No fans planned.

The setup will be:

Wiim Pro, streaming, optical out
Topping E50, balanced TRS out
3E Audio amp monoblocks, balanced combo XLR/ TRS in
Triangle Australe Esprit EZ speakers

I can take any criticism, my first objective is safety, then functionality.

Though this is a DIY project, I can see assembly is not complicated, though I would not do it by myself (not into electronics, not soldering etc).
However, for any lurker (like me) , as long as you are not technical, only try this if you can allocate the respective budget 'for fun'. Still, I expect very good results, even compared with my current amplifier Yamaha A-S 1100 (which I love).

I was looking into Fosi Audio V3 Monos, then discovered the 3E Audio monos, so I gave it an adventurous try.

Also thanks to @brunes for sharing the shopping list.
I got all but the cases from Audiophonics, France.

If you've not already got this, I would consider buying a dummy load, or at the very least some cheap disposable speakers and ear protection. You might also want to hire a proper continuity testset for safety checking. You hopefully won't need a fire extinguisher, but they can be useful...

I am ready to take the humour (wanted to say 'heat'....).
But as I said, it is not me assembling the stuff.
My friend is more than qualified in elecctronics, but not specialised in audio.

This is what the front of the case will look like, I could use the existing rectangular opening, improvising.
Back needs further improvisation and cutting/ drilling, for power switch and XLR combo input.
First sure thing about my project, it is not about looks
