My desires: PCBs that are smaller than the original Digisound size. I'm 
currently relaying these for my own system, and have got the board width 
(ie across the connection edge) to 4.5inch or less (they now fit in a 3U 
rack vertically). You'd still be able to use these boards in a standard 
size DG system as well.

My (potential) cons: are PCB-mounted pots/sockets a bad idea? Cumulative 
strain from usage might crack the solder connections.....

Roll on October!
