I've just gone back to original small cap in 906 and tried oscon 47/16 in 916.
Sounds pretty good so after all the experimentation my position pretty much the same as the start of this thread.
So my clone will remain like this, full bodied sound with more detail than you can take in.

Next step is to get it into it's case and hopefully it will continue to improve.

Default Help, getting drop outs

I've put together all pieces and I have the player running, digital out is arount .5 v

Dac locks onto signal and plays, only I get a drop out every 15 to 20 seconds. Power supply seems ok with constant 8v. The drop out is for just a split second and continuosly repeats every 15 to seconds.

Any suggestions as to what to check for, I have not removed any parts from digital boards yet.

I've posted on the original thread also, but have had no answers yet.

Hi Peter. I'm reviving this thread to ask about your supply. By any chance had you an opportunity to try any of the newer types of electrolytics in place of the Black Gates? Is there no other which can provide a sound equivalent to the F or FK type?

Tony, unfortunately there is no Black Gate equivalent among the newer caps. Black Gates are still the best and only.

For information about other caps you could have a look at my "big capacitor test": Finally, an affordable CD Transport: the Shigaclone story

I have tested more caps since but the results haven't changed much, except:
- Some people find Os-Cons sound too hard for their taste and for those I recommend replacing them with Starget in the C916; in the PSU replace it with Rubycon ZL/Nichicon FG or another Starget.
- I now consider "no cap" at C916 inferior to both OsCon and Starget.
- BG STD 1000uF/50 is a bit better than BG STD 1000uF/25.
- BG Nx HiQ 47uF/6.3 is better than BG N 47/50.
and also:
- all electrolytic caps can be improved no end by wood-modding.

I hope this helps

Here's the user response I just received today, regarding the CD transport:

It has been several months since I purchased a CD transport from you. I have finally put it into use, and I want you to know how pleased I am with it. I am using it with an Antelope Audio Zodiac Gold DAC (with Voltikus power supply); the inter-connect between the transport and the DAC is a Kubala-Sosna S/PDIF cable. The outputs are connected to a pair of Genelec powered monitors. I use the system for very critical near-field monitoring, and it is excellent for that purpose.

Peter I was going through the thread and I really liked your chassis.
What did you use in front of the LCD? Is it acrylic? How did you attach it to the wood frame?

Hello Peter,

How can I contact you regarding purchasing a CD transport. I want to upgrade my old NAD player, perhaps you can mod it for me. I live in Hamilton.
Thanks Sean

It is tinted acrylic and it's set between wood pcs with few drops of crazy glue

I still have few boomboxes left, so if anybody's interested I can let them go.
