Hi,
I am interested, but shouldn´t the two modules swap places? It feels more natural to have the flow first go through the HVM and then to the SE330.

Its only a draft, i have to measure the pcbs sizes too.
A switch to use each module in single mode or both modules together would be helpful.
i'm open for other ideas.

Yes, measuring needs to be done! I have build the two PCBs, and put them side-by-side, and it seems to be a *very* close fit for a 19" enclosure. I can do some measuring myself and post here.
But it was my idea to put the two modules together in a rack enclosure, to the idea for the front panel is one I really like.

There should be quite a bit of wriggle room in a 19" rack. Although some are bigger than others. Either way, it is most certainly a good idea to try the PCBs up against the panel you are using.

I also have the HVM on the left - the idea being that signal flow is left to right and the HVM is used to process the signal before being 'ensembled'.

In the picture above I've normalised the input to the SE330 from the output of the HVM by using the tip and ring switched contacts of the input socket for the SE330.

I should add that I have only four SE-330 PCBs left at the moment. There won't be any new ones until well into next year now.

I have measured the 19" rack case I have, and unfortunately it is narrower than what Tony has used. So I will have no room for the extra switch. In fact: the two PCBs just about fit in the rack unit I have for them. The total width of 19" rack is something like 44,5 cm, but the inside of my enclosure is only 40 cm.
So I do understand that I might have to sit this one out and find another solution for my needs.
Thanks for the effort.

I has ordered 3 pcb kits for friends and me.
next step order 3 cases from thomann or musicstore and measure the case size.
later final paneldesign (HVM left, se330 right)

I come back later for panelgroupbuy.

here is my project page with updated frontpanel (draft)

https://www.dsl-man.de/display/DSO/Oakl ... +meets+HVM

the in/output routing is planned by usage of switched jacks and/or by frontpanel switch.

next step: ordering of empty cases and measurement of the case to get mounting holes & pot holes on correct position.

just found this project, looks really interesting! does anyone have a finished one to sell? If not, how long did it take you to build yours, and how much did the whole thing cost? I've never done more than solder one or two things at a time, so I'd have to learn as I go.

I'm currently working on a ready made product that is similar to the SE330. I haven't ventured into selling ready made items for a while but the SE330 has generated enough interest to look into getting a few of these made to sell.

I'm not sure yet when it will be available but it would be nice if it was available for Spring next year.

The SE330, HVM and RPSU is a major project even for an experienced builder. I wouldn't recommend it to an absolute beginner. I tend to guide beginners towards full kits on offer from various other companies. These will give you the case, all the parts and usually a decent set of instructions.

That said, plenty of beginners have built my stuff, and once they have coped with the minefield that is buying the components, they rather enjoy the building process.

I can build a HVM/SE330 rack in about two days full time.

I have these boards and still need to build them. Would love to get a case, does anyone have pointers they could share about how to get a 1u rack mount with holes in the correct place for mounting and front panel?

There’s no panel which fit for every case.
I build atm. a SRE330 and used from Thomann the Adam hall case, it wasn’t easy to find the correct allignment.
You have to print your panel file on paper (DIN A2) and check the correct sizing.
