We have a saying that "If you never let the smoke out of anything you never worked on electronics" sort of our take on learning from mistakes.

This project had its fair share of hiccups along the way, but luckily no expensive ones. That issue with the amplifiers causing a audible pop when powering off, had problems with the noise of the CPU getting in to the audio because of doing grounding wrong. Also had the PC wake up from sleep mode on its own constantly, eventually traced that down to the sound card and figured out if i use it in the 16x slot the problem went away for some odd reason. The amplifiers had too much gain and would clip when turning the volume past 30% so i soldered in some resistors to attenuate it down to where clipping was a little bit past 100% volume... etc. Solving such problems does help a lot to know what you are doing, but hey there are a lot of even smarter people on the internet.
