Blue Microphones Icicle rehousing

Here's a quick rehousing to fix a few issues with the Blue Icicle, an XLR to USB adapter. This rehousing puts the jacks at the back and controls on front which is important for keeping cables under control. The mic jack was upgraded with a solid metal one. The knob is easier to access and visualize the actual position. The power LED and phantom power LED are now separate. The metal casing is also a step up from the white plastic tube.

UPDATE 30 May 2010: I've installed a small condenser capsule into the front so I have an all in one for portable recording. Works great for recording everyday events.
