- Sequential start
- messages / warnings
- less costs
- because I can :-)

Ah, yes you could make a fancy sequential start with a display where you could program which output you want to come on in what order and specify a time between each.  It's a little more function than most would expect or need from a sequential start yes indeed, that would be slick!

As for warnings, the only thing I can think of is a warning for unbalanced neutral, or incorrect polarity at the supply plug.  A breaker trip from overcurrent would be nice too I guess since you'd have the display for it. 

If you choose to upgrade the unit from what you currently built, it might be nice to have a power conditioner in it that you could have voltage displayed.  Heck even put a current meter in it as well!  You could have a full power consumption display!! Oh Oh!  And a resettable peak RMS memory like  a Min/Max function of a multimeter so you could look at peak RMS power out.  Ooooo, ahhhhh, "hey look at how much current my amp is drawing when we rock out to that last song!  That's 500 watts!" 

The less costs has me guessing... what do you mean?  Sequential start could be designed with nothing more than a couple of timing relays.  I would have thought a display, controller, AND regular relays would cost more.

Yep, a lot of things are possible.
Thanks for the input!
It will not be an upgrade. I am looking into a design that could be interesting for more people.
Something like a combination of
- Tuner
- Sequencer
- Power conditioner, not so sure about that since I want to keep it multivoltage
- Wireless system
- Bluetooth
- Power supply for a lot of things
- goose neck light in the back
- Maybe a front panel light

When the Design is bullet proof.
I spent a lot of time on programming at the moment.
After that I start designing the enclosure.
