MourBettah (and lessons learned)
« on: June 20, 2016, 05:07:04 AM »
Installed the MourQuiet a few days ago.  During installation I put one of the Dale's on the wrong pot terminal and it was too short to put in the right spot, but luckily I had a different resistor that was close enough to temporarily wire in.  Not blown away by the change.  Get my replacement resistor and flip her over to make the change, and lo and behold, I forgot to solder, not one, but two terminals (5U and 7U).  Doh!  I could have sworn I checked those.  With her flipped over and opened up, I couldn't resist putting the Jupiters in that I had ordered.  Rechecked all my solder joints and plugged her back in.  WHOA! Inner detail everywhere AND non-fatiguing.  Right out of the starting gate.

Unfortunately, I can't tell if it's the MourQuiet or the caps, because of my Homer Simpson initial install, but the combo is bringing big smiles.
