Looks nice. Would be interested to see the volume control. Manic Miner wakes the neighbours when it loads! :shock:

I am a complete novice but my plan is to snip one of the connectors to the speaker and bridge both ends with a vairable resistor.. This should change the volume leval. I need to find one that will fit the case...
