OK, added the headphone stand and the wooden knob to the amp. Sorry for all the posts, what do you guys think, is the knob too big? Better than the plastic one?

It's better (very pretty even), but I think it'd be even better if the diameter of the knob would be the same as height of the the bright area.
Is your stand impacting the clamping force of the AKGs at all? I love that style stand but I've always been leery of putting the dual band AKGs on one.
Looks cosy. How's the LCD-X on this set-up? Not many here have the M51/MJ combo. I love mine, though I do miss a 1/4" se hp out. You have that taken care of by the Burson. My incoming Vali should sort that out.
So how did you make it?
Love the clean layout you have . and the light arrangement. :)
The V200 and the Burson are SE backups. However, having done some thinking - I have decided to get rid of the TH-900 and the T1. I should have no need for SE outputs anymore - but will keep at least the V200 anyway.
The LCD-X and the XC plays well with the M51/MJ combo. In fact - if I should have been rational about this hobby - I should have sold everything else - but won't. There is no such thing as being rational in this hobby. :)
Well, I took the circle that was too big and started sanding. I'm using a random orbital, so it rotates in tiny circles, but the whole thing also spins, which then gave me an idea. The circle of wood had the whole in the middle, so I put it on a stick and used the spinning motion of the sander to spin the wood, in essence making a little lathe. Sanding still took awhile, but by rounding the front off a lot it made the knob look smaller without having to sand it all down. This is a fairly hard wood, so sanding it down another 1/4" all around would probably take several hours, at least with my current setup. I think I'll live with it at this size for awhile and if I want to tinker again or improve the look I'll sand it some more.
