nah, that’s not what pain is. pain is what I went through when drilling/filing holes on the aluminium enclosure. literal agony. Not to mention the moment one of my titanium drillbits snapped while working on it, and flew directly into my eye - denting the protective glasses I was luckily wearing.
I think a rocker switch may look good, yeah - but I’d rather keep any switches/ports to the top cover and front/back panels. I think the unit itself could work really well with a SFC theme. I actually have a spare SFC power switch lying around I could use - and that wouldn’t take much work to mount at the top.
Ah the possibilities!
edit: oh man. I know what I’ll do for the front panel. I’ll have controller ports 1 and 2 at either side, of course - but in the middle a cut-out MVS logo. I’ll then place some plastic behind it and add the LED. That’d be fucking awesome. Power switch would have to go on the back if I do this, but that’s fine.
gotta get the cad files done and then sent over. I’ve been quoted a pretty low price so that’s good. On the back I’d have the power switch, AC In, L/R Phono and RGB Din 8.
