Yeah, maybe if you're lucky they'll fit, but you might want to pick up a small round file or 11mm bit in case.

Same with me, I've had my amps for a few weeks.  Even I was willing to fasten them to a board temporarily, there's no heat sink as recommended and I have to cover them from the cats, plus it's a hassle anyway.

XLR alert...only known fit for this chassis is:

Neutrik
Chassis mount female (standard for input, diagonal fasteners...male is output with vertical fasteners)

Available with silver or gold plated contacts, either fit as both are otherwise mechanically identical (gold contacts = black finish, silver may be natural aluminum finish).

Someone recommended and I agree we should remove anodizing finish (scratch off or employ Dremel tool) at all earth contact points between the chassis and the amp, IEC, XLR, and power supply.

Aphex Jr. electronics had fantastic prices on the Neutrik chassis mount XLR's.

drats!  I looked there minutes before purchasing at parts express and missed them.  Navigation help or link is appreciated.

I'm not sure they are listed on his site. When I visited his warehouse he showed me a couple of flats of them. I guess it would be best to call or e-mail if you're interested in some.

Hi James.  Thanks for coordinating everything for the chassis.  I just placed my order for 2 chassis.

This is off-topic, but the thread is pretty much done anyway...I'm curious if anyone preferred silver contacts for their XLR jack and why? 

What kind of mains power cord will you employ? 

I wish there was mid-priced IEC receptacle between these generic $2 Parts Express pieces and $50 cryogenic treated Furutech.  The PE receptacles work but contact friction is minimal with $20 Marinco IEC plug.

How about the F1-10 gold plated for about $24?  http://www.vhaudio.com/connectors-ac.html#IECinlets

Phil - do these fit?
I have ordered the romeyn chassis but not the components yet.

Do what I did and ditch the iec. Use a circular, screw on connector such as those made by amphenol, or a plug in lemo connector. There is also a nice high power connector called  powercon made by Neutrik. These are all way better than the iec.....

I don't want to change my power cords, so need regular IEC

I don't know whether they fit with that particular chassis but here are the dimensions:  http://www.vhaudio.com/connectors-ac.html#IECinlets

Put a new connector on your power cord.....

My post said 'I don't want to put a new connector on my power cord'  - get it?

No, that isn't what you wrote originally....You post said "I don't want to change my power cords" which can mean you don't want to get new power cords with different plugs. Get it?

Misunderstanding then - changing my power cords meant I don't want to change the cord's configuration, i.e. change the end, it didn't mean exchange them for different cords.

I don't want to change my power cords or put new ends on my power cords.

If you meant to be helpful,   :) ,  thank you for the suggestion, but I will stick to plan A - IECs for now.

Yes, I went back and forth, IEC vs. the obviously superior and not so costly Neutrik AmpOn, but that makes the Ncore useless without a custom AmpOn-terminated power cord.

Not passing judgement on these apparently very nice IEC...just conversing...years or decades ago a reliable source (may have been George Merrill of TT fame) said mis-matched metal contact is to be avoided when possible. 

What's the best priced gold contact IEC plug for the mains cable?

check out iego iec if you must use inferior technology....they are the one of, if not the, best....
