Found it

A few pics of my Shigaclone - next adventure will be the chassis
Puffin I used the following items:

Black Gate 1000uF / 50V standard (x 2) for the PSU board (board ordered from Peter). LM7808CT regulator, with two MUR860 diodes.

On the main circuit board I used the following:

C939 (E1) - 100uF / 63V Elna Silmic ARS

C953 (E2) - 330uF / 50V Panasonic FM

C929 (E3) - 4.7uF / 50V Black Gate N

C934 (E4) - 4.7uF / 50V Black Gate N

C916 (E5) - 47uF / 50V Black Gate N

C906 (E6) - 0.1uF 400V Auricap

Cheers,

- John

I think that was just meant to be a repost of the existing part list johnm put up earlier in the thread.. I could be wrong..

Hi just ordered one from http://www.hiwayhifi.com .
I think that they ship worldwide, but I had to pay more for shipment than the cost of the unit to get it to Greece!

Picked up my latest RCEZ32 at the Post Office this morning so I will soon have my Shiga Clone "Clone" up and running again..

My frequent purchases seem to have caused a significant price increase in the cost of this boom box.. I am not sure whether there are more or not lurking out there.

That's the DIY spirit! I look forward to reading more on
your modifications.

Cheers,

Hopefully in the next week or so I will be able to document my mods, unfortunately they are not for the faint hearted and unlike the RCEZ31 the mods are not all that straight forward, but I have done the ground work and anyone following should be able to successfully replicate it.

The performance was getting very, very good, and I think we owe Peter a big Thanks for bringing this to our collective attentions. I would never have thought of it..

In terms of improving choices of boom box for this project I am not sure I have contributed much in that sense as I don't think the '32 is all that readily available over here either.

I managed to get two of the 32's and the first actually arrived yesterday. I do look forward to your documentation of your mods. Surgery starts today for me, and I appreciate being able to learn from your mistakes.
