R5D4's sound system 1.1 - Audio FX Sound Board

Have ordered more components for R5's sound system.

The 'Sound Board' I've ordered is an alternative to the normal one used by most builders. But at half the price, and after I'd checked with our IT guru's on the UK R2 Builders Forum, I was assured it will do the same job.

It's not MP3:
  Quote: The sound board is designed to be simple: it does not have polyphonic ability, can't play MP3's (MP3 is patented and costs $ to license, so this board uses the similar but not-patented OGG format, there's tons of free converters that will turn an MP3 into OGG), isn't reprogrammable or scriptable, and you can't have any other kind of trigger type. However, there's a good chance the project you want to make will work great.

Also bought some speaker cable, for the speakers (still to buy) but also for connecting up the sound card to the 12 Channel remote unit, which I had ordered, but then received an e-mail stating there were quality issues with the units so a refund was on it's way....
