Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed how substantial the case is on this beast? Those side walls look like they are 3/16" thick, whereas most receivers these days use cheap, thin, formed sheet metal cases. I am a sucker for good build quality, but it also greatly reduces the resonance of the case.
I wonder if the final production 5803 will really have a thick machined aluminum cover like this prototype does? Even if it is only 1/8" in the final product, it will be an improvement over most AVRs.
I had the 5800 and it had a really well made case that gives you a certian sense of pride of ownership. The thought is that if they care that much about the case, just as much if not more care went into the circuit and component design.
Can't wait for this unit to reach market.
