Glad I saw this. You wouldn’t think you would smoke something by shorting the speaker leads. That can easily be done by plugging in a headphone jack or not having the headphone jack wired correctly the first time. Be careful! ;)

Yep, one of the speaker leads could have been grounded - not sure.  Whatever happened, U1 came out on the short end of the stick.  Note to self - be careful with speaker leads.
Examination of the solder joints on the bottom of the board indicate no problems and quality workmanship.
