No apologies needed Jim.
I don’t think we should be too concerned with stepping on each other’s toes with these projects,
as there’s probably enough time at the soldering station available for everyone. Who wants to
spend every waking moment assembling boards? :)
I had only a very small run of 20 or so planned on the Orch90 board anyway, and the more
new hardware that’s out there, the better for the community.
Anyway, looks nice! :D

The Orch90 functionality analog section is the top right of the cart, the R2R ladders are most prominent. I used discrete resistors since I helped with layout and I could get the wattage rating I wanted more easily and more cheaply.

I have verified the sound waveform matches the OR90 output, but has a but more Vp-p, since I opted for some newer ABT-family latches, which drive to the rails a bit better.
