ooooh Peter..... you tempt us with battery supply! Go on, you can't leave us hanging with a tempting pic like that!


Erik - can you send me a PM, I am more than willing to send you on the cocobolo puck etc. It just slides in a friction fit so it isn't "permanent" - should be easy to try out.


I wonder if I made a brass spindle like the other one, but this time threaded, and then made a puck that screwed down onto it. The puck could then be made bigger diameter.

Only problem would be tightening or loosening the puck.

Dear Peter Daniel
Thank you for the answer Peter

Dear Erik
Thank you for your answer before
cant reply cause very busy right now
Tricord looks nice but hmmm ... so expensive

What is the type of your AT & T ?

Look you got AWLSR with BGN for powered your AT & T
Have you tried to powered your transport ?
Is there big diferent Between PSU with BG Std & BG N in transport?
(If the capacitance of the caps is the same)

Or Anybody try this ?

Regards, Jeffry

Actually, in my system, I preferred AC PS.

Default The Best

I haven't even spoken to Peter about this yet, but I might as well let him know here. I live in the US where you can't get this thing so I asked Peter if he'd make one for me ( actually, i think the one on the battery in the picture is my unit). I wanted to run it on 12V DC as my whole system is 12V .
Well, having been burning it in for the last 3 days straight, I can honestly say it is the best digital transport I've heard. Nothing at RMAF bested it. My heavily modded EAD T1000 can't make that last jump out of "digititus" that this thing does. Simply astounding.
So, whatever mods he made in mine, find out and do those!
Oh, I know Peter tends to not like battery power, but if you put your components on really big, high quality SLA batteries (like Odyssey's), it makes a HUGH difference. Just like a high quality ,oversized AC power supply. And you NEVER have to worry about crappy AC grunge again!
Seriously, I was in bliss listening at 11 AM . No $$$ power cords, $$$ ac conditioning.
In a nut shell, I'm sold. Mark

Hi Mark, I'm glad you like it.

Yes, it is your unit, and it's built exactly as described here: http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/showt...55#post1669755

It is my second version of that transport, and it's also the simplest one. I have to admit that with all the mods I did to my original build, I kinda lost the spirit of Shigaclone: it's certainly smooth and refined, but it does not posses the raw energy and purity I liked so much with Shigaraki.

After I moved all my transports to a more resolving system, I also noticed the defficiencies of my originally modified unit: too many BG N's were influencing transparency and immediacy, that new version is much better in that regard.

I recommend everybody to build it as described in my link, and only then consider ANY OTHER mods

BTW, bigger batteries may indeed sound better, the effect of batteries may also depend on local mains condition, mine are not that bad.

Maybe this is a little out of topic

I got old sony CDP, try a little mods before my shiga finish
I change supply caps with the elna cerafine
The old caps was Cheap Elna (I forgot)

The sound was so natural but looks to thin
Because i didnt have another caps so i changed with BGF
The result is better with BGF in my ear

Before that, i test the capacitor sound
(Cut your "+" speaker cable, low volume and connect with caps feet)
The cerafine sound was better enough than BGF (Not Clear)

Why ? I dont know

Oh yes Peter as i known, you have a lot of collection of BGN 1000uf/50
Have you tried to powered the shiga transport ?

can we use car battery supply ?

I tried BG N 1000/50 but they didn't work well here.

Hi Peter.


For the simple version of shigaclone ..Using Okapi guide did you do the following :

remove - R1, R2, R3, R4, R5, caps 2,3,4 on the back and exchanged E5 with a BK 47/50 cap

using the same power supply as in guide , did I miss anything?

Thanks,
Rich
