Raspberry Pi3/Chord Mojo Enclosure

Hi,

I just thought I'd share an enclosure I made for a Raspberry Pi 3 with a Chord Mojo USB DAC running RuneAudio.

It contains the following parts, plus wiring:

Raspberry Pi 3 Mainboard
Tontec 3.5" Screen
Ergo Touchpad
5000 mAh Lithium Battery from eBay
Adafruit Powerboost 1000c
2 x Anker USB SD/MicroSD reader removed from plastic shell
2 x SD to Micro SD FPC Extender from Amazon
Up to 4 x PNY 512GB SD card(s) (2TB)
Adafruit Switch
USB 2.0 Micro-B Male to Micro-AB Female Adapter, Black, Manhattan 308755 from Amazon
Chord Mojo
3D Print Enclosure made of nGen filament

It is 130 x 11 x 43 mm and weighs 540g.

The Tontec screen is resistive touch, and is very hard to use, so I added the USB Touchpad.

It works pretty well; occasionally I get some unexpected pauses--I don't know if it is because of faulty wiring to the SD Card readers or power overload. But it sounds great.

That's a tight squeeze! Nice project. How does it compare to an iPod?
Have you had any issues with output volume?

I haven't actually compared it to an iPod, but one of the reasons I made it was to not have an external wire between the source, like an iPod, and the Mojo.

I control the volume directly from the Mojo, not from RuneAudio in the Pi, so there is plenty of volume.
