Default another GC was built

Hi guys,

First of all, I would like to thank people on this great forum. This forum helped me to build my first gainclone.
I used the kits from audiosector.com. The case is a Galaxy series GX287 from audiokit.it.

Thank you, zatramusic, for your reply...
I used this layout because I didn't want to keep the LM boards close to the transformers. In addition, swapping the location of the LM and PS boards will result in shorter output (to speaker terminals) wires, but the length of the input wires will even increase, because of increase in distance from the LM boards to potentiometer.
I would say that the sound of this amp is rather neutral, not colored, in comparison to my Yamaha RXV495 receiver. There is no hum or noise, and, although the transformers are rather small (100 - 120 VA?), the bass is strong enough for me.

No, as I said there is no hum or noise, the amp is dead quiet.
