Peter, looks great! I like the grayhill a lot.
Did you try moving the ground from the meter board like I described in the build thread? I don't know if anyone else tried this but it fixed a distortion problem in mine.
With that fixed, my 525s sound fantastic.
Other possibility - if you have room you could add a FET to the meter board... the originals just show the cv on the meter, but with a 2nd FET the actual GR could be displayed.
