How about following the design exactly but including, as add-ons, DIY parts for custom modifications for things like rear power, etc? This way, you would not break the license, you would not incur any extra delay from the manufacturer, and users who were interested in those modifications would be empowered to make them themselves, all within the license. Massdrop could even publish instructions on how to make the modifications.

That's an awesome idea. I'll check into it and see if this is something we can do.
Great post, endorsed.

Hi Will, if that's not a possibility or for those not interested in DIYing, what about a separate drop later for a desktop version of the O2 with the rear power, rear input, rubber feet, etc?

Then you could drop some super awesome solder set for those of us who need a new one :).

If the license says that the only way to modify the amp is DIY, then someone not interested in DIY or afraid to try it is kinda out of luck, don't you think?

Ah, soldering kits, we tried to source them loads of times but the prices available on amazon are as good as you'll be able to get anywhere so you're better off buying from them.

Couldn't find any premium, military-grade titanium soldering kits?

LOL that's pretty funny. Looking at it now, SEED is doing some cool stuff. I was mostly referring to the standard favorites from Hakko and others, but hey, glad my colleagues over on the tech side were able to that down : )
