>> Sure is an ugly hack using the parts that he used. I wonder if there are better connectors and switches to use. <<
agreed..... we must give him credit for trying, though. I'm sure, with my 1/2-decent soldering chops, that I could get at the signal path /after/ the pre-amps & simply add two 3.5mm jacks for the two stereo line inputs. I'll have a look later.
(I did something conceptually similar to add an effects loop to my fender cyber-champ; surface-mount components are very delicate! but anyone who's tackled the low-noise mod on the repeater or mended a walkman ought to be able to manage this)
his other mod- the first part of it, at least- also looks useful.... improving the separation between the onboard mics discreetly has some appeal, but I'm not so sure about his contention that the second part of his mod "looks good".... :-)
