Looking good!

I felt that the original WNA was excellent and will be following with interest. I had great fun using the WNA with the rs-1's and found the rs-1's really enjoyable and not bright. The WNA+RS-1's sounded way better than the GSP solo +RS-1's, IMO.

Dear PinkFloyd,

Waiting for your WNA MK II review.

Oh Yes

A smooth and auspicious startup. I wonder what polish premium parts will provide?!

Good job, Mike. If you allow a comment on your otherwise admirably tidy soldering - it looks like you might want to try a little less solder (and make sure to melt it on what you're soldering, not the tip of the iron). With a good solder joint you can still make out the shape of what's beneath.

I'll agree with the strength of Pinkfloyds joints as I tried to de-solder some without knowing of the method he used. Several swear words later I managed to remove the component. I did ask Pinkie how he did his soldering so it won't catch me out in future.

Pinkie soldering is more like artwork

That's actually a great way to do it if you don't care about desoldering (and if building a proven design, why would you). I still think you might do with a somewhat reduced amount of solder, but maybe it's just the pics not doing your joints justice. Guess I've been raised to fear those solder blobs...
