Today I continued with the housing...

I use layers to get 54 mm Birch as a plateau to mount the top plate and have a construction I can use for further devious plans...

Because I do want to make it a pair with my pre amp I choose to veneer it with Padouk which comes close to my massive cocobolo wood....just a matter of taste ...Birch looks also great if you ask me...

Hi Erik, I liked your old sig line better.. (baldly)

Project looks great. I'm just enjoying my pit bull now, all done - and all those BG have finally broken in, in both the dac and the transport and the combo really gives my modded Sony SACD player (SCD-777ES) a run for the money. Comparing CD to CD the combo wins handily, comparing CD on the combo to SACD on the Sony it's often a toss up. (Not quite what I expected I'll admit.)

Hi Kevin,

I achieved quite an improvement when I installed those caps in a Sony. Never compard Shigaclon with Sony directly, but SACDs sound pretty good

Baldly...was due to my poor english but gave it a nice twist...although a bit disrespectful as a "Trekkie"
