If those are your choices I'd go for Doepfer. More modules and
manufacturers in the Euro format which seems to be having a bibt of a
rebirth at the moment.

I would not say dotcom is "sturdy". The faceplates are light and the one's
I've seen use thin gauge wiring, etc. Don't get me wrong, they're not junk
but they are hardly "Built like a tank" as I have seen some folks say.
"sturdy" to be is the bulletproot MOTM 1/4" series or even metalbox or
modcan/cyn stuff.

Euro also has a variety of power supplies and cases to choose from which I
think would be cheaper to get into depending how you configure things.
