Inside the chassis there are 3 spherical mill outs in which the poles fit loosely, allowing sideway movement.

As to transformer, I wouldn't recommend really small units and 50VA could probably be reasonable minimum.

I also have slight preference for 96VA Hammond EI over same type 50VA unit.

What are the alternatives?

I can't see where the EZ31B has a Digital Out ? I have looked at the specs and cannnot see it. Is it that it is disabled for the Boombox ? Or not used and it is just a matter of connecting it up?

It's only on the PCB and used in the actual boombox.

No digital out on RCEZ31, it's there on the pcb. Just a matter of connecting it up, and making all of the other mods detailed in the pdf file in an earlier post.

I have seen, heard, used the Shigaraki which is why I am going to build this clone.

It's gonna be fun..

Thanks Peter for sharing this and all of the additional input you have provided to my many questions..

In the U.K, shops have the EZ31 and the EZ31B. I see that Peter Daniel had stocked up on the EZ31B, but in this thread I see it is just referred to as the EZ31 ? Will either do ?

B is for Black, over here only that model was available. EZ31 should be exactly the same, just silver.
