Last night while trying various speakers, smoke started rolling out of my uBitx.  The audio IC U1 was fried.  I'm assuming the audio line shorted while inserting plugs.  They are cheap (5 for $6) and I'll install a socket for easy replacement.  But a word of warning.....

i Noticed the volume switch has an on/off switch built into it.  perhaps I will connect this in line with the speaker jack and turn it off before plugging and unpluggings speakers and stuff.
