I just like to know that I have tried everything to get the most out of this design...It is definetely worth it.

I think there is still room for improvement...the major asset being that we can LISTEN to it step by step in our own configuration...also you do not have to do it all at once....

If you are in the mood and have some money for the hobby you can try the next step....

I had all the copper as a left-over from building my pre-amp.....I got at the right moment loads of it against a reasonable price via a client/friend..

Your drive is a bit rough. You want to get outside more. All this tinkering under gas light is no good for you!

Great job Audio1st.

I finaly got to it to put all the stuff -minus the audio board- and put it on a piece of wood for easy tweaking.

I tried to recycle the old power section, but somehow its only getting me +15 volt, on the 12v line...

No 8 volt anywhere. I tried linking the b+ and dc+ the same as the switch between battery power and wall power, but didn`t help.

Basicly this is what I have now:

-Power input 230 volt to the transformer (battery switch bridged)
-12volt ac from transformer into the power board
-no connectors connected to any connectors at the small board
-15 volt dc at the 12 volt place on the power connector
-no 8 volt anywhere



anyone got any idea`s?

As I thought was possible, was just take 8volt and hook it up to the transport. Then all I need to connect the ribbonconnector to the lcd pcb... or?

Not a good start of a project

Looking at the schematic it's hard to see where you could go wrong. If necessary I could hook up a spare PS here and see what I get.

Thought I'd post a photo of my finished Shigaclone and say a big thank you to Peter Daniels for starting this project. Thanks also to all the other contributors to this thread. I've learned so much and my system has taken a quantum leap in sound quality.
Cheers,
Malcolm
