I have a Shigaclone size problem I have to sort out. I successfully had all the smd's removed and ran the wire from 5a to 5b. I also successfully removed all the R's on the palyermods.pdf. Now, I installed all the BG's and the new crystal and I now have an inoperable shigaclone. It spins up and reads "00" on the display. Hints anyone where I might have went wrong?

Regards,
Dan

This could be due to lack of caps with a new crystal. I mentioned that in this post: http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/showt...08#post1474508

Try to install the old resonator and see if it works properly. If that's the case you might need to add capacitance with a new crystal.

Another thing, the jumper from 5A to 5B is not really required, I installed it only because I had traces cut through when I was experimenting with additional PS.

Try to install the old rezonator and see if it works properly. If that's the case you might need to add capacitance with a new crystal.
Unfortunately the old resonator was destroyed in the removal process.

yes, but things seem to sound better with it. I'm compared both side by side with 2 separate transports. I used silver with unbleached cotton insulation.

I had my 31 lock like this once. It seems like it powered up in a strange state. Had to hit the TOC button a couple of times and hit stop and play and it came out of it. Maybe something on the door open button was not quite right.

That is actually possible, as you replace dubious quality PCB trace with a good quality wire. In that case, it may be recommended to cut the PCB trace which is in parallel with a wire.

I would like to thx Peter for sharing with us this great transport.

I would like to share my experience with the RCZ31.

I removed and exchanged most of the part as Peter recommended. I initially used small 12-0-12V with 700mA with BGN1000/25V parallel in Super-E configuration with BGN1000/25V after the LM7808, first listening feel that the sound is not better than my CD-Pro2M unit. They certainly have more air but details that I like in the CD-Pro2M. I change the transfomer to 12-0-12V @ 6.3A......Walla....details, bass control, depth is certainly improved. I would recommend using big transformer, do not waste your time in using small one.!!!!
