Although I fully intend to create my own PCBs in the long run it is nice to piece parts together with a breadboard until I'm ready to order. Took some time to understand the shunts are used for two reasons. 1. Reduce pop from plugging and unplugging when used with a capacitor. 2. Allow a headphone jack before the speakers.
