Gosh, you live on the edge!

What you forget is that all of the shoes and handbags were 'bargains'...

I checked -- my local "Beverages and More" only sells Bumbu and Mt.Gay from Barbados. They've never heard of Foursquare.

We are not an oasis of cosmopolitan luxury around here.

Started my build tonight. Looking forward to listening to her. Nice boards and case combo too. You have to love the Mouser BOM as well! Some stuff on back order so I need to shop around, all I am missing is the polyfuse so it shouldn’t be a problem.

Billky- beautiful build! Congratulations. The green zip tie and purple coil wire insulation are a nice touch.

Thank you, high praise indeed.
Glad you liked my color scheme. I love that wire, itís mil. spec ptfe jacketed silver plated copper 19 strand 24 gauge.
It was a sweet little build that I thoroughly enjoyed. There was a lot of work and thought in the build guide and whole project for that matter. Nicely done.
Itís currently in my system with a Roon endpoint RPi, allo digi-hat, Topping D50s. It sounds really nice, I need to spend some time with it!!
Thanks again.
