Booted up with no issues and already making sweet music. It was a pleasure to build. Can't wait for the kids to head to bed so I can get accustomed to the sound.  I'm coming from a Lyr 3 and Crack Speedball with mods.

Pictures or it didn't happen!

That's a fine looking amp! Your staining and finishing job on the base came out very nicely. Kudos!

Clean and neatly done. Maybe snip off the end of the long bus bar and check solder joint at that position?

Yep, that was an issue as I had forgotten to solder lower terminal 6. Had some attenuator issues on the fine balance. I also went over the amp again and trimmed any leads I missed.
