Hey Anthony
muchas gracias for this really cool photo footage. Close to real live. It's 
been all the same when I started to try and do that.

Regarding your low volume: did you check R4303? (It's the one below the two NC 
pads and right side to C4303, the one you borked and replaced. It's clearly 
mentioned in my SOP paper) R4303 is not mentioned in your story if I didn't 
miss anything. Usually it's 0R and it's amazing you get *any* signal at all 
from mic if you haven't replaced it by a ~2k2k (probably anything between 
400Ohms and 3k will do, though I learnt by your report even a 0R will do at 
least partially :D  ).

Please keep on reporting this way, and don't hesitate to ask me for whatever 
kinda help you might need. I have a few spare devices for emergencies ;-)
Your report is considered *very* encouraging by me. It shows how much you can 
deviate from SOP recommendations and still you get better results than MP 
device. Also it shows everybody is encountering some sort of same problems 
when doing this first time, and there's a way to recover from those.

a heartly cheers
