Definitely planning on having at the next meet. Thanks for reminding me--I need to reserve the library tonight for a date in November. Installing a Speedball is in my plans, it'll definitely be in by November. Still very tempted by that KSA-5 mini kit, but I want to finish the Crack first.
Finally started work on my Crack. First order of business--enlarge the potentiometer shaft hole to accept a stepped attenuator. Then some sanding of the chassis plate and transformer bell, and painting with dark bronze hammertone paint.

It seems like there's some variability in manufacturing the headbands, but it can easily be adjusted.
I heard the BMC PureDAC for the first time this weekend and was really impressed. Just listening to the LCD-X with the PureDAC alone--it sounded very good, lots of detail, great imaging, and not a hint of harshness.
