Tibi, how many of Peter Daniel's improvements have been incorporated into this design? I know you didn't replace all the rail caps with BG's , but what about the crystal, removing some of the SMD bypasses, using Caddocks for the output resistors etc? There's so much info in the history of this thread that it's a little difficult to sort out what Peter and others had done, and how much of it is in this completed design.

As many other good things, BG's are history these days. Sanyo OsCon will follow soon as well.

You will find that many Peter Daniel's improvements have been included in our design and few more.
PCB was designed to allow two crystal types ane one metal can (Tentlabs).
For output, you may use any THT resistor including Caddocks.
Also there is the option to insert ferite beads for each IC power stage or to use external power supply's leaving room for further experiments for those who like to do this.
Shiga's sound can be influenced mostly by capacitors, so PCB will accept several capacitor types.

And who knows, together with this great community, may we will discover more tweakings, but now is time to move forward.

Regards,
Tibi

I wonder if, once the product begins to be delivered, we should start a separate thread? Something along the lines of "Turning the new Shigaclone into a Giant Killer". There are certainly a ton of great ideas here, but I think it might be worth a new thread just for those interested in tweaking it to be better than the giants past and present.

I'm just waiting on a response from a friend (we both built shigas) - its likely I'll be changing to at least 1 full built shiga.

Be back ASAP with a proper response

I completely agree with you.
