Dumb question on Eval boards ...

If I were to pick up an Eval board for an a/d or d/a converter ...

Could I just use the case and power supply of one of my existing pieces of rack gear that I don't use -- perhaps something I have lying around that doesn't have much resale value? I'm just wondering if it's at all practical, or if I would run in to compatibility issues, etc. etc.

Just curious. I'm a complete idiot when it comes to this DIY stuff, by the way. But I do have friends who can do this stuff for me, and who owe me favors.

Yes you can. I have a 96/192 24 bit A/D which I use as a handy balanced line in to a optical input soundcard (RME). the chip manufacturers want you to be impressed so it is pretty much as good as that chipset can give. Of course there are no frills and changing sample rate etc is not necessarily easy (usually dip switches).
