The video for LED meter calibration is finished, so is the one about correcting an error I made on the input jacks. I hesitate to post the "error" video because it may irritate a sensitive jerk on YT.

Monologue:
"Really, you should come over some time- I'm a fun guy (bites a mushroom: "fungi") some of my friends say that I'm quite vaccinating (squirts cyalume [glow stick juice] at the camera, "fascinating"). This would shoot the whole series into the tank...

Nice video, I'll need when I do my 400 II.
That "unmodified" C-1 looks familiar. I know it sounds great even in it's native state.

The only bad thing about the upgrade is the different size of the input jacks on the back. Will have to find a good way to desolder from the circuit board, don’t want to damage any traces. Thinking about a low budget desoldering device using a 4” cooling fan and aquarium hose.

New video series, I guess- the BillD upgrade…

And, yes, BTW- sounds excellent, and the holography circuit is wickedly amazing!

Try some of this for desoldering, it is amazingly good. They give you 5 feet.

Awrite... Posting the dreadful input jack error video...

The part that might eject from YouTube is at 11:14, but there's a bunch of cornball crap throughout, starting at about three minutes.

All of the BillD components replaced now. I didn’t use the blue LED, I used a white one- and it looks like a train headlight in a tunnel! Switching to the blue one…

I must have desoldered one of the jumpers by mistake, lots of crackly noise…

Yes, videos on the upgrade…

By messing around with the resistor/LED combo, you can tone the "train headlight" down
