Wow fab! That looks fantastic! It is making me thing about building a mini amp for the kitchen. Maybe I will look into one of your ussa pcbs.

My adventure in diy amps started off with the honey badger, I already posted pics of the Denon badger, that was my second, and went very smoothly. My first badger struggled with one board. I did resolve the issue, and completed the rest of the project steps tonight. I like to recycle stuff because I am a cheapskate and a hoarder, and I had a nice t3 tape player that needed belts. 30 minutes into that job and I was like, "$&#& that!" And decided the kids could take it apart and play with it. But the meters were cool and looked nice, and worked. So I pulled them and set them aside. I refinished the arcam faceplate, filled and sanded all the holes, and painted it a very dark metallic grey. The meters were a PERFECT fit. Also got the power led working. Now all project ideas I was hoping for on this one are done. Meters work, thd over light works, backlights set up, and closed up, back in the lineup. And yes, I did clean up the wiring, birds nest is gone, everything is nice and short and properly stowed away. 🙂

Thanks Summitp!
Note that actual production USSA3 pcb are too tall for this small chassis. My prototype USSA3 board was using a reworked F5 pcb...
I wanted to demonstrate that even an all-in-one class A amp with moderate power can be a small size too where space is an issue or for easy transport.

You have done quite a nice job on your recycled amp too.
