Still two EZ31 left. They won't last much longer. I'll return them at the end of the week, because I'll be gone from home for almost all the month of June.

My Shigaraki is up and running. I had all SMD's removed today and then removed all 'R's in the playermods.pdf. I then ran the wire from 5A to 5B. Although in stock form this transport is not a giant killer in terms of air and treble extension it's still very good with no obvious vices. Very well balanced and listenable. I can't wait to get the BG's in and let it burn in!

P.S. It's currently feeding one of Peter's NOS TDA1543 DACs.

r8833. I intend to do the same with the old case, so that it covers the IR remote panel etc.

For those of you not going the Bronze and Copper enclosure route, then here is another suggestion.
I have used an old Goodmans unit for this (same chips), but it would work equally well with the JVC.
The transport is directly connected to a couple of bolts bonded to a granite board.
I also replaced the original clamp and motor for a low mass, three point clamp I salvaged from another unit.

I then added an 18mm MDF surround and switches. The switches are the (on) off (on) type and are connected in parallel with the original push buttons.

Just add the 18mm MDF top and sit the granite base on three soft feet (or two soft feet and a spike).
All done...
