Simple is often best. However as a result of laziness I never got around to housing my "shiggy"clone properly. It rests on an off-cut of Granite and sounds good enough to me.

I have been looking for a set of suitable springs for for ages, it was only yesterday I discovered a fantastic shop in Portsmouth that sells the correct size! (I didn't buy them)

I just put together another transport, the mechanism is mounted on standoffs to a bottom copper plate.

I only replaced PS, as descibed here: http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/showt...36#post1468036
Everything else, including resonator, is stock. The output resistors are 100/300R Mills.

The transport plays really good, as good as the original Shigaraki.

In some ways it is better that my prevous built, especially when it comes to raw energy in reproduced sound. The trade off is slightly less refinement and smoothness, but when you get used to it, you won't even notice

I will later post more pics of the inside job.
Nice sharp lines to your Shigaclone BTW

While Eric pushes here the envelope of State of the Art, I tried to come with a simple solution that averybody can follow.

Let's start with PS. I used a circuit described here: http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/showt...36#post1468036

48VA Hammond transformer fits perfectly in a Hammond 1590T enclosure:

Diodes are mounted directly to connector socket:

and the whole thing came out quite elegant:

I was debating for days how to make it simple, yet nice looking. In the end I decided on a wooden frame mounted between two panels: frosted acrylic on top and copper on a bottom:

The PS is made on protoboard with 2 x BG STD 1000/25 caps. LM7808 regulator is attached directly to bottom panel. Two oversized brass standoffs support the mechanism:

Control switches are recycled from the original boombox; I used standoffs and protoboard to mount them:

I also implemented the original display board, slightly modyfing it to fit inside the chassis:
