From the looks of things you should have that up and running soon! Great fab work. I mounted my m2 on top of the cover plate also. Nice choice on the motherboard! I wish I would have went with something with a bit more power but I still have love for the via, has not failed me yet. Are you going to implement a true 5.1 surround? Like a six channel amp? That would be amazing. Ive got 2 amps in my setup but its a standard 4 speaker, 1 sub setup. Make sure to take pics of the DOM unit, Ive been reading about these and it seems to be a great way to have a 'flashed' OS install. Keep up the great work.
