I like the idea, but how much extra heat does the amp produce? I know most amps produce a substantial amount of heat, but I understand the class-T amps from companies like Sonic Impact are much more efficient. What type and model is the amp?
Also, you've got a completely ridiculous number of cables in that case, but you've done a fine job of managing them.
the mCubed fancontroller gives indeed an enormous amount of cables.
the amp does not give heat-problems. when playing music for an hour at strong levels the amp itself feels just luke warm. it's a 12v car-audio amplifier by blaupunkt (tha 275 pnp). it's not a normal amp-design, but a high effiency one. the details of all that are not known to me.

but I think a good t amp outside the case is the way to go. Less RFI, less heat, and a good t amp is a very good amp for relatively not a lot of money.
sending the sound out to a t amp with a USB DAC is the way I want to go. I don't game and am not interested in 5.1 just the best two channel I can get within reason.
the amp gives no rfi problems. absolute silence in the speakers with sound muted. and only one quiet pc and 2 speakers in the living room.
