Today I have ordered original transistor set 2SA608NF; 2SB764E; 2SA1342 and ADP151AUJZ-2.5-R7 regulator.
These should arrive in one week from now.
Ill give exact price after we pay customs taxes.

Next week Ill proceed with CD mechanic order.

Regards,
Tibi

EZ31 and few other boomboxes have same SF-P101 inside.

My apologies Tibi. I clearly missed that info along the way.

The goal would be to do enough of them to keep the pricing reasonable.
Depending on the price, I would be interested in a hardwood top.

Because of my location I have to have everything shipped in. That may influence price a little but should not be a huge factor. If all goes as planned I will have a CNC router/mill around the June/July time frame. I'm going to try and get some sketches done this weekend of a couple of different top designs. Since I do not know how the new board switches will be mounted I cannot accommodate for that yet. This is still a work in progress.

Tibi, does your software produce parts list automatically by any chance? I wanted to get an idea of how many resistors, caps etc. of each type are required because I plan on making them myself (where feasible).

Yes, jazz35 will give an exact number.
Do you want to make handmade SMD components ?

Hello Tibi,
I'm interested in your GB but where I can find in the thread more tech info?
How much will cost in your opinion the GB transport?
I2s output would be implemented?
Thanks a lot for your help.
Ciao
Guglielmo

Thanks Tibi - yes, I am planning to hand-craft my components. I have been doing extensive trials and research into components, especially capacitors and resistors. My hand made caps and resistors sound much more natural than any commercially sold parts. So, although they are very time-consuming to make, I will try to use them where possible in this project. They will not be true SMD by the way, they are much too large - I will have to utilise space above the PCB to fit them.

Hello Guglielmo,

Can you please be more specific, what tech info are you looking for ?
So far we have the price for IC set. Next week we'll get the price for transistor set and CD mechanic. PCB price will be available when the board is ready and we get a quotation from manufacturer.
Till then you can express your interest in this project by registering to the GB list.

The IC set used in original shigaraki transport do not allow direct I2S output, same here on shigaclone.
If you want I2S output you may use an s/pdif received like CS8416. However, you''ll get a similar chip in almost any DAC.

Regards,
Tibi

Hi, uncle_leon
I hope the attached excel file will help you. Note that is not the final B.O.M..

All the best, jazz35
