Is anyone using this case for their Pi4?

Recommended Posts

Currently, I am using the plastic case, and fan in slow mode, that came with the Canakit starter pro Pi4 kit I bought from Microcenter. I have no complaints about the temps, I can't hear the fan and even as I type this I can't think if a reason other than looks that I am even interested in this case, but...


Has anyone used, or is using, this case from Akasa and have anything about it they would share?

Not that one, but a different aluminium case with passive cooling. It works fine and looks nice. I bought it for looks. 

Main listening (small home office):

Main setup: Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>QuietPC Low Noise Server>Roon (Audiolense DRC)>Stack Audio Link II>Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.

Secondary Listening: Server with Audiolense RC>RPi4 or analog>Matrix Element i Streamer/DAC (XLR)+Schiit Freya>Kii Three .

Bedroom: SBTouch to Cambridge Soundworks Desktop Setup.
Living Room/Kitchen: RPi 3B+ running RoPieee to a pair of Morel Hogtalare. 

All absolute statements about audio are false :)

FYI - the weight of each case makes a (significant) difference due to vibration control, here's one @ 785g




Although it is our policy not to mention anything about sound quality, the difference from a normal aluminium case is so huge!





Someone else actually ordered 3 of them afterwards




And then here's another one @ 600g







We tried to get a group buy started but unfortunately it ain't getting too far
