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?

No electron left behind...

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
