    The price has dropped slightly, now $68 usd, approx 51.

    It looks superb. Best case I've seen for a pi and streamer.

    Will there be one for the isolator and boss, andre?

    Put me down as interested, price dependant. Not sure if much to be saved though as these would still require re-shipping once in the UK.

    I have the Allo DigiOne Alu case. Yes, I can confirm that it is very well made.

    The Allo Sparky/RPi case is ok, there are better looking aluminum ones IMO and some that act as heat sinks.
    The pictured one can still be had and similar are also available, all the ones I've seen have been in the States. All CNC machined from solid, with a protrusion that sits on top of the chips to conduct the heat into the case. Some polished, some brushed and anodized clear or colours.
    It's a lot to spend on a case though, you could get a nice HAT for that amount.

    I'd like the Allo in silver but it's great in black. The outriggers on the corners make the Allo look like a sci-fi space ship....more funky to my eye than the US one pictured. Bear in mind the Allo case is for Pi + DigiOne only so production numbers will be lower than a generic Pi case (maybe).

    Yes the Allo case is molded so if sold in qty the price comes down, but variants become a problem, you can only do so much with inserts in a tool.
    The CNC versions are heavily worked () and cost does not come down with volume to any great degree. The advantage is they can easily accommodate any design combo and at least one company is advertising customization to your requirements, but it all costs.

    The thing I don't like with most of the SBC designs, is the way the connectors come out of several faces, this does not help with case design/cost. I know this is because of the original design parameters, which were not audio related, but we do tend to have our Audio equipment in nice neat rows on racks with all the interconnects on the back. At some point, one of the manufactures will realize the large Audio/Home Theater market is worth developing a specialized board for.
    In the meantime, we have to buy adapters/extenders etc if we want to get everything out the back.

    Generally I think all SBC's look pretty ugly, as tiny boxes with fairly chunky stiff/heavy cables hanging out in a haphazard fashion, to the point where it's difficult to get the thing to stay where you want it, the cables have other ideas.

    Hi guys,
    designing a case is not easy as we need to respect the RPI peripherals.
    we tried to present a case that is functional and unique.

    Qwin, not sure what the above picture is for, but its not for an RPI...
