BTW uncle_leon, where do you stand on offering a replacement for the C906?

That's fair enough You may be interested in the complete list of Shigaclone mods I am curently compiling (most of which should be applicable to the new Shiga) - I will be posting it in a few days, along with some of my new discoveries. I get quite a few messages/emails asking me about this or that aspect of Shigaclone, so I thought compiling it would save everyone's time. And time is doubly precious to me because I spend most of it trying hard to figure out how to make a living out of my hand-made components

Please see post #5864 - the offer is still valid, although I wouldn't recommend that cap for you. You want the new VNM+ Cap. That, or Duelund CAST.

Maybe I'll start up that new thread I was mentioning a few pages ago. I was going to wait, but maybe we should just get it off the ground. I was thinking of calling it "Turning the Shigaclone 2012 Into a Giant Killer". I'll take suggestions for a better title. The focus would be on starting with Tibi's soon to be available version and tweaking the life out of it. Your input I suspect would be appreciated by many!

Hmm. Looks very interesting. For this design what value would you recommend? Also, is there any sonic difference between the mahogany and sapele?
