The board doesn't really have anything too weird on it, but do watch out that your PCB house does the plated slots for the headphone jack correctly. The DRC rules are set for tented vias - these are preferable for aesthetics, but are otherwise not required.

## Beware Fake Chips!
Many of the YM2612s being sold on eBay are fake. Chips are very often remarked to make them appear new, and that has been ongoing for a long time, but recently myself and friends have received completely fake, non-working chips from multiple eBay sellers. If you are unsure about chips you received, email me a photo and I'll check them out. Also, I have had much better luck receiving legit YM3438s from eBay, so that may be the way to go. I recommend YM3438 anyway due to its improved sound quality.
