Another winner Martyn.
I like the “flow” from top to side.
Kind of reminds me of an architectural water feature.

We are running out of superlatives, Martyn, as you keep pushing the boundaries of design and accuracy of execution

Very nice box. Thanks for the link to the Led. Some songs I forget about and then something random directs me to them and I am back in my young adulthood.
