Hi, i'm trying this out at the moment but have run into my first problems. I'm not 'modding' the player yet i simply want to run it as a transport to see how it sounds then go from there. So far i've taken it all apart and mounted the PSU board, the analogue board, the LCD and the transport onto some wood and it works perfect through the headphone jack so everything is still fine.

I tried taking signal from the DOUT and ground on the transport board into my DAC but i'm not getting any noise- and the headphone out still works. Is there something i need to disconnect before the digital out start to work?

How much of the stuff on the analogue board can i chop away? I only want the power to the LCD and the transport

That 75 ohm actually should be 93.1 ohms which in conjunction with 392 (1%) will give you very close to 75 ohm source impedance to match your spdif cable. These are the values I am using in my now 6 month old RC-EZ32 based version of the Shigaclone.

It is the turn of The Infamous Blue Led today..

Besides the tweak it is for me a very helpful light ''cause it shows exactly puck and platform in a see-through manner so I can easily mount and dismount the puck on the thread...

Out of a block ebony I make half a moon to follow the lines of the ...uhhh... turntable...

After that I drilled a heavy copper tube with a 15 mm drill in order to make it adjustable in height and a passage for the led wires...

I could simply not resist to give it the look of the "cobra-arm"

...it is all still very loose on top of each other in order to make adjustments before the final fitting...but it gives an impression about the designfeatures.....I will mount it after a while......this way it gives me the chance of a second look....
