It looks great!

Many thanks, sir! It turned out to be everything I had hoped it would be. My HD-6xx's have never sounded so good before!

Is it just me that follows these threads like a Netflix boxset?
Have been checking in regularly for latest instalment and so pleased to see a happy ending!
Nice job and way to go for persevering.

Thank you for the kind words. I have found the friendly and prompt support provided on this forum invaluable!

I continue to be delighted by the Crack. It really is everything that I've been led to expect, if not more. As an added plus, for a relative beginner like me, there is the pride of knowing that you built it yourself.

Thanks, Karl! :)

I even made a custom label to put inside the case, matching the font used by Bottlehead in the instructions manual:
