I contacted ati research about pricing on a 373u enclosure and was told that the company closed. so does anyone know of any retailers that still have any ati research enclosures in stock?

If there ever were, it would most likely have been in SE Asia.



Well I figured it never hurts to ask.

When I asked if there were any left in stock I was told a gentleman from the Netherlands bought everything they had. I'm not sure if this was just a DIY'er who wanted lots of enclosures or someone who planned to sell.

There was a reseller in the Netherlands, I looked at them a year or so ago but I can't find the link right now. IIRC the prices were quite a bit steeper than ordering directly, so I expect it would be much more expensive now as the dollar has dropped quite a bit since then.

/U.

The distributor of ATI enclosures in the Netherlands was Speakerworld -from the same owner as MMAudio- but they are no longer in business as far as I know.

If you are talking about ATI-737U (373u doesn't exist

) enclosure, then yes... I was that gentleman from the Netherlands who bought the last 737U enclosures. Of course, I'm a DIY-er and I have used ATI enclosures for years, as some of you already know.

Yes, I meant 737U lol. I knew you had been using the enclosures. I have 2-3 enclosures I've been looking at for a Max build and I really like the 737U, but it doesn't appear that they're available anymore.

Erkk the Thai company closed down?! Sigh, should've got a cheap Air Asia ticket and bought all their stuff before some Dutchman did.

I've got three of the really small ones. One has a Sigma 11 PSU in it, the other two are still in their packaging. They're still at my old place in Florida, but I intend to bring them to DC next time I'm down there and build my Millett Max into one.

If I decide to part with the remaining one, I'll let you know.

I remember thinking that I might be abut to squeeze a max into the 735u, but I think it would be easier to fit a Max in the standard Hammond enclosure... especially since I plan on using either an OptiVol or Stepped Attentuator.
