    I’m one of the first few buyers if not the only one to get one of these before the final release. The board looks amazing and very well designed! I really appreciate the works spent on these. It works great and sound is great too! So much better now the usual PWM sound.

    Got mine today! The board looks beautiful and very well designed! Great job man! It’s superrr way way better than the usual pwm audio. I don’t hear any noise at all and it’s very quiet when no sound is playing unlike my previous build using the PWM is horrible. Great job on this! I will be buying more for my brother.. hahah.
