There is a short somewhere. Check to be sure that you do not have any solder bridges and that D1 is installed facing the right way.

I rather like the RCAs and the mini jacks because the screw bushing is on the inside. I find screw bushings on the outside to be...ugly. Unfortunately it seems no one has designed a 1/4" jack with this in mind. There's the locking Neutrik jack, which is much nicer, but not ideal for aesthetics, in my opinion. I was almost about to buy all PCB mount jacks for my Millet and mount them using perfboard and standoffs (seperated from the main PCB) so I could have all bushing and nut-free components on the ouside. Would end up looking more like a retail stereo component. But I said screw it and went with the Neutrik jack and a knob big enough to cover the pot bushing.

Ok so i went back to my amp and realized my d1 was put in the wrong way. I replaced d1 and pf1 and put in d1 the correct way, however i am still having the same problem as before (the pf1 gettin really hot and the led no coming on). What damage could have been done by mounting d1 the wrong way. I am 99% sure i do not have any solder bridges unless i really did miss something checking over the board 20 times over. If it can be no other reason than a solder bridge i will try to take some pictures and post them here.

Well guys, the last few posts have been more about construction or parts sourcing, and would be better posted in the existing construction thread for this project. Since this thread was about sourcing boards that have since been shipped, I'm going to close it.

Please post any build or component questions in the proper thread.
