Just a quick question here;

Where does a clock circuit fit in? Is it part of the transport or part of the dac?

I've built a couple of battery operated "monica" dacs (without any clock installed) - just a digital in.

I'm building an ezdac as well (hopefully) and it has a clock in the circuit.

Just curious that's all.

Can be both, normally DAC will slave to transport clock.
But designs where transport slaves to DAC clock are also possible.

I've got the transport out of the rc-ez31.

How do you pull the display out of the unit?


I've got a hammond 43va 12.6 vct (It's got 2 6.3 secondaries @ 3.4a) just wondering if it should be ok?

I did not see any comments as to whether this has any positive effects, (replacing the main board by a much lighter one - not the trampoline) but seen as how the shigaclone is so sensitive to mechanical mounting I would not be surprised.

Anybody like to comment? I am too lazy to take it all apart and remount it just to try.
Yes, I think it is worth separating electronics from mech for better details and opportunity to tune the sound by placing the el. board on various supports(carbon rods,wood etc.).The best in my chain it sounded with carbon placed on parafin table.Try it ,just have to solder 6 wires from board to board.Much better this way in my case.With Shiga you can tune the sound in so many ways ,what is the best part of the project.It remind my to analog turntable time ,endless bettering. By the way ,how to easy upload the photos with the post(always too big the photo size).

Click the image to open in full size.


I've got R3, R4 & R5 out so far. I going to order some parts for the power supply.

How is the digital out taken from the board?

Thanks,
JG

The thickness of this copper is only good for lamination (0.025"). For double the price you can get same size plate and 10 times the thickness from local Metal Supermarkets store.
