I can show you where to get the legs, the 4 legs are $6.50 a piece and you can use any speaker spikes combined with the legs. The legs are 1.5" in diameter and 1" long, I was planning to use the dayton speaker spikes from partsexpress. combined the leg/spike height is 2.5"

Thanks, I was checking for a friend. You could put my name but am not 100% sure because it would be his decision.

Today I placed Shiga on two carbon fishing tips.One side of tips sits on two rollers made of buttons and toothpicks and the other side on the air cushion for Poul Ladegaard's Air Bearing arm that I bild for that purpose but I couldn't resist to temptation to try it on transport.The best mod I ever made!!!Total reality and easy presentation.Everything is so natural with great timbre.Seems that air suspension have decreased stress on reading mechanism because the details that came out are incredible.

Does anyone know the chipset used in this model? Hope it could be used for Shigaclone.

JVC RC EX10 - Review - JVC: Just Very Crap?
Finally, I bought a service manual of RC-EX10A to see which the chips are inside. Unfortunately, the chipset used in the RC-EX10A is entirely different to RC-EZ31 and is unable to output SPDIF.

It is similar to the one made by BMW850 but it will be much smaller (12.5"x12.5"). I am thinking about starting a group buy if I can find others interested. I cant afford to have one custom made (I got some quotes of $260-$300 for material and labor) Hopefully, a group buy can bring down the price. This is for the top section only. There will be a recess and cut out where the JVC mech will fit right in. The lower section will not be custom milled. It can easily be made from aluminum plate so I will leave that up to you guys to make. Please look at my plans and let me know if anyone will be interested. Remember this is only for the top section and I am hoping to find a place that will do it for $150-$200.

Looks great, I'm interested.

Great, how about getting a CD puck machined too? Or, is that asking too much?
