Received mine today they look very good! I've got all the passive parts just need to wait for my samples of the LM4780 from national then will start building and testing!

The amps are up and running

I'll pull some numbers from the circuit tomorrow (I hope). So far everything is looking fine.

This may be a stupid question buts what's the mute implementation? Do I need a 5k resistor to -vee to bring it out of mute? From CHG to -vee?

Thanks

You'll need a 10k resistor, 1/4W will do fine. Look at the attached pic, it's at the top in the middle.
On the underside of the board there are two solder pads, a 1206 package size SMD resistor, or as in my case, a MELF resistor (MMA 0204 series) fits nicely. You could also use a regular resistor with it's leads bent accordingly.

Oh, and do yourself a favor and add coupling caps at the input. With 22k to ground it should be between 1.47uF and 2.2uF (-3dB @ 5Hz which is 2 octaves down from 20Hz).

Thanks for that I wondered why I wasn't getting any sound! I suspected the mute. What are the larger resistors used for on the underside?

They're 2R7 2W Vishay/Phoenix PR02 metal film resistors and they are needed to complete the Zobel networks (R-C in series to ground). They're missing from the BOM, just like the muting resistor.
