Now we need a layout for this. Wanted to try this for ages. But I'm not really good at doing layouts. :(

Excuse my newb-ness, but what is the RX across the gain pot in the schematic? Is that why you made the gain pot 10K, Bugg? I might attempt a stripboard layout just for the hell of it - I already have a load of Bugg PCBs and very good they are too. :-)
