last week. some real text is sorely needed at this point, but it'll have to wait for now :(
anyway, we're making some real progress. the physical enclosure is mocked up and we've got a good acoustic test going. we should have the actual amp mocked up in a few days, and will be working on the rest in the coming week or two.
the mvp is an off-the-shelf amp circuit, an ipod, and a speaker (the volume potentiometer isn't connected to anything), housed in a mason jar. it sounds pretty great, though it's tough to change tracks/channels on the ipod. luckily that won't be an issue on v1.0, which will have a fixed band FM tuner only.
